Should Cancer Patients Take Vitamins and Supplements? | Dana-Farber Cancer Institute?


Should vitamins and supplements be a part of a cancer patient’s diet? Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center Nutritionist Stacy Kennedy, MPH, RD, CSO, discusses the best foods and diet for cancer patients.

This video was originally filmed as part of a live video webchat, “The Best Foods and Diet for Cancer Treatment and Survivorship,” held on March 25, 2015. View the entire webchat here:

Transcription:

You really want to go back to your dietician and to your doctor with any of these questions, because certain supplements are important and helpful. Some people need to take Vitamin D. Some people need to take probiotics. Magnesium sometimes, if your blood level is low from chemo.

But there are other supplements that can actually reduce the effectiveness of your treatment. For example, taking high-dose antioxidant pills during radiation therapy may reduce its effectiveness—same thing for chemo. So, you don’t want to be going through all of this and doing something that’s inadvertently sort of compromising its success to some extent.

One thing that people often are understandably confused about is, ‘Well, then I guess I shouldn’t eat blueberries, because those have antioxidants.’ And the issue and concern is just with supplements, which can be high dose, potent, and also to some extent a lack of regulation, so we don’t want you skipping those fruits and veggies. We want you picking those and asking your doctor about the supplements. Don’t just start taking vitamins thinking they’re going to fill in the gaps.

Shopping At Costco For Vitamins & Supplements – What To Buy & Avoid


I’m back at Costco exploring the vitamins, supplements, and collagen powders to tell you what’s good, and what you may want to pass on. Costco has a ton of vitamins at the warehouse, but you really have to read beyond the vitamin profile, and see what’s in the other ingredients. Some multi-vitamins, prenatals, and more have added sugar, artificial flavors, and soybean oil! Costco does have the best deal ever on grass-fed collagen peptide powder, and you have a couple of options to chose from. You really have to carefully read the full ingredient list on the vitamins and supplements, because it kind of defeats the purpose when you add sugar and other nasty ingredients to things that are supposed to be good for you. Mad love..Bobby, Dessi, Rose, and Art! XOXO

The Disturbing Truth about Vitamin Supplements – Sharp Science


According to the Council for Responsible Nutrition, vitamins and dietary supplements are $122 billion industry. However, most people don’t know that the FDA doesn’t regulate supplements as strictly as prescription medications. In fact, supplement companies don’t even need to prove that the actual ingredients match the label. Most of the time, if you have a balanced diet, supplements are at the very least placebos, and at the most, something that might kill you.

Vitamins: do you need supplements?


Should we be taking vitamin and mineral supplements? There is, unfortunately, no simple answer. Registered dietitian Daphna Steinberg says that for most adults under 50, a balanced diet is the best place to start, rather than the vitamin aisle. Rather than trying to guess what’s best for you, talk to your doctor, pharmacist or registered dietitian to know for sure!
