    Default Chemotherapy and vitamin therapy — is it safe to do them together?

    Frank Shallenberger, MD

    Many if not most oncologists (cancer specialists) have the opinion that vitamins and other nutrients will decrease the effectiveness of chemo drugs. But is that true? Actually there is literally no evidence for the theory.
    In fact, the evidence is the opposite. Not only does the use of vitamins, especially antioxidant vitamins like vitamin C, not interfere with chemotherapy, it actually improves chemotherapy. So it especially makes me crazy when my patients come back from the oncologist saying they have to stop all their vitamins and other nutrients because they will block the effectiveness of the chemo. Nonsense! A recent study on the use of high-dose intravenous vitamin C with chemotherapy points this out.

    If that were true, surely they would have to stop eating? Most food contains some vitamins, even if they are not high amounts.

    Well, they are referring to the use of supplements. I've seen the same silly advice in print!

    This advice from medical authorities does not reflect any factual information, but merely reflects the extreme level of irrational bias that is held by this group against any sort of supplementation.
