Vitamin Supplements - do you take them?
Well the oncologists say they 'just dont know if they are of any benefit', the surgeons say 'they are a waste of money'. BUT the nutritionists say that they may reduce the risk of recurrence ?!?!?!?
We have found a book called ' HEal Cancer' by R. Cilento - she advocates a number of vitamin supplements on top of loads of juices ( listed a few below)- is anyone taking these type of quantities? - have heard that these large amounts of vit C can give diarrhea. AFter a whipples resection and 6 months of FOLFIRI would prefer not to be running to the loo.
heres part of the list
Vit A 10,000IU 3/day
Vit E 250IU 3/day
betacarotene 2 capsules/2/day
Vit C ( Bio C) 12 -20kmg/day
coenzyme Q10 3/day
The list is quite long but the items above can give you an idea of the quantities
