A Daily Regimen of Vitamin and Mineral Supplements That Aid in Breast Cancer Prevention

Vitamin C

1,000 to 3,000 milligrams (or more). Vitamin C is the most potent anti-toxin known. It can effectively neutralize or minimize the damaging effect of most chemical carcinogens in food and the environment. It will also help prevent the formation of free radicals, which are causatively connected with breast cancer.

Vitamin A

10,000 to 25,000 international units. Vitamin A protects the body tissues from damage by carcinogens, (Editor's note: An alternative to vitamin A is beta-carotene.)

Vitamin E

600 to 1,000 international units. A powerful antioxidant that will help prevent fat oxidation and formation of free radicals, which are known to be one of the causes of cancer. Both vitamin E and vitamin C can help inhibit the activity of the enzyme hyaluronidase, which is found in cancerous tissue. Vitamin E also increases oxygenation of cells, which is of crucial importance in the prevention of cancer.

B-Complex

Derived from yeast, three to five tablets. (Editor's note: In a personal communication, the late Dr. Airola interpreted the tablets to mean three to five tablets containing 50 miligrams of each of the essential B vitamins.)

Dr. Otto Warburg, Nobel Prize winner, asserted that a powerful supply of B vitamins, especially pantothenic acid, niacin, and riboflavin in the diet, is the best possible protection against cancer.

Lecithin

One to two teaspoons of granules. Choline and inositol, the lipotropic factors in lecithin, are of special protective value against breast cancer because they help in hepatic degradation of excess estrogen.
