Hello Semi Colons!

Here's a link to a study about antioxidants helping radiation/chemo to kill cancer cells. There's often confusion about this so I thought I would pass this on.

Great article, Emily! While I was undergoing Folfox for stage 3C colon cancer, I took mega doses of antioxidants, drank gallons of green tea, and drank a mushroom drink from Korea. This was all approved by my oncologist. It is my opinion that these extra "helpers" protected me from neuropathy. I took 135mg. of oxaliplatin for 12 cycles and have been blessed with no lasting side effects. My oncologist was always ahead of the curve in his thinking.

Interesting, I did folfox for 8 cycles, or I should say, that was the starting point. I was stage 3A, I had to stop the oxalyplatin at 5 cycles but was able to continue the 5FU, but if I have do do it again (gosh I hope not) I will look into the antioxidents. Thanks.
