The Dr. Oz Show finally confirms that there is enough evidence to prove that anti-oxidant pills taken in large doses can cause cancer. Specifically, the intake of Vitamin A, C and E supplements beyond the maximum zone halts the body’s natural ability to fight the dreaded free radicals. If you’re taking in these supplements on top of your daily dose of multi-vitamins, you need to know that the maximum levels are far from beneficial: 10,000 IU for Vitamin A, 2,000 mg for Vitamin C and 1,500 IU for Vitamin E.
