Overdoing it on dietary supplements can lead to cancer, American researcher warns

by , 29 June 2015

It's widely believed that dietary supplements can only be good for your health. But increasingly, research is suggesting otherwise…

At the 2015 American Association for Cancer Research Annual Meeting, researchers discussed how new US studies are now suggesting that excessive dietary supplements use increases your cancer risk too!

That's a pretty big risk to put yourself at, if you ask me. So is taking vitamins and minerals in supplement form really worth it?

Do the benefits outdo the risks?

A doctor who was present at the meeting reports on the cancer risk involved with taking dietary supplements. Read on to find out.

Why take dietary supplements?

More than half our nation’s population takes some form of dietary supplement. The purpose of these supplements are to help your body achieve essential nutrients you might not be getting through food. However, many new studies have suggested that they pose serious health risks.
 
Dr Byers of the University of Colorado Cancer Center is one of the researchers who’ve been looking into how dietary supplements can promote cancer risk.
 
This is what he has to say…
 

If you’re taking dietary supplements, DON’T exceed the recommended levels!

According to Dr Byers, initial tests of dietary supplements in animals indicated that they can prevent cancer development.
 
But on testing these supplements on humans, Dr Byers and colleagues found that they can have the opposite effects for people. As a result, he URGES you to stop overdosing on your daily supplements immediately!
 
“We studied thousands of patients for 10 years who were taking dietary supplements and placebos,” Dr Byers says. “We found that the supplements were actually not beneficial to their health. In fact, some people actually got more cancer while on the vitamins.”

The real key to healing cancer is to wipe out the stealth disease lurking behind it...
 
I admit I was downright shocked when I found out that cancer isn't actually what kills most cancer patients! And I've been a doctor for well over 20 years - so not much surprises me anymore.
 
Even more astounding - this monumental discovery goes back to the 1970s when former US Air Force Dr Joseph Gold uncovered the REAL killer, a condition that no one in the medical field was even talking about!
 
That's right - the real culprit behind 3 out of every 4 cancer deaths isn't cancer at all. No! It's a syndrome you've probably never even heard of - called cachexia (pronounced "ka-kek-see-ah").
 
 
**********************************
 
Dr Byers points to one study that investigated the effects of beta carotene supplements in humans. The results of the study revealed that individuals who took the supplements in high doses (rather than at recommended levels) were at a 20% increased risk of lung cancer.
 
In addition, Dr Byers speaks of another study that associated the use of folic acid supplements with colon cancer.
 
He notes that these findings shouldn’t stop you from taking vitamins and minerals at the correct dosage. He does, however, say that he warns taking them in high doses can do more harm than good.
 

Dietary supplements will never be a substitute for food

“There is no substitute for good, nutritional food,” Dr Byers notes. 
 
It’s definitely possible to get all the vitamins and minerals you need through a healthy diet. If you’re struggling to put together a diet plan, I recommend consulting a nutritionist. I also advise you to consult your doctor before going on ANY supplements!
