But while many of today's popular health foods contain massive doses of antioxidants like vitamin C, loading the body with as many of the nutrients as possible isn't the cure-all some might hope; in fact, ingesting large quantities of antioxidants might actuallycontribute to some of the very categories of disease they're touted to prevent. One now-famous study — which was actually stopped early because of the risk to patient health — showed an association between taking beta-carotene supplements with an increased risk of lung cancer in smokers Alpha-Tocopherol and beta-carotene supplements and lung cancer incidence in the alpha-tocopherol, beta-carotene cancer prevention study: effects of base-line characteristics and study compliance. Albanes, D., Heinonen, O., Taylor, P., et al. Division of Cancer Prevention and Control, National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, MA, USA. Journal of the National Cancer Institute 1996 Nov 6; 88(21):1560-70.. And other research has come up short in definitively linking antioxidant supplements to increased longevity or decreased risks of serious disease.
