USANA's Overdosing Antioxidants May Be UNPROTECTING Your Body To Fight Cancer!

After I read today's latest scientific discovery regarding aging, I found the following quote extremely interesting!

"The research, published by the journal Molecular Systems Biology, shows that when an ageing cell detects serious damage to its DNA – caused by the wear and tear of life – it sends out specific internal signals.

These distress signals trigger the cell’s mitochondria, its tiny energy-producing power packs, to make oxidising “free radical” molecules, which in turn tell the cell either to destroy itself or to stop dividing. The aim is to avoid the damaged DNA that causes cancer."

If I'm not mistaken, this means that free radicals are important in protecting your body from developing cancer! But according to USANA's entire regimen, free radicals are bad and your body must receive megadose amounts of ANTIOXIDANTS to help protect your body from cancer.

This is a startling discovery because if proven without a doubt, the entire "MEGADOSE" vitamin industry is dead.

If USANA actually does what they claim, which is to adjust their supplement formulas to the latest scientific research, then USANA should drastically cut back the amount of antioxidants they overdose your body with.
