I would use caution when promoting large doses of antioxidants if a person is undergoing chemotherapy since there is evidence out there that large does of vitamin C in particular because of it's great antioxidant properties can actually protect cancer cells from oxidation right along with the healthy cells, rendering chemo up to 50-70% less effective. As a preventative and for daily maintenance it is great, when undergoing treatment it can have a counter effect unfortunately.
