Lack of B6


Recommended Posts

I just read that smokers (& former smokers) are lacking in Vitamin B6. This results in DNA damage and is what leads to lung, colon, and prostate cancers. There was a study conducted and current smokers who took a vitamin B6 supplement had significantly less DNA damage than those who did not.

It is an anti-oxydent and those are supposed to help right? Thought ya'll would want to know! (P.S. No anti-oxydents with chemo...be mindful of what your doctors have told you! and ask your doctor about this new B6 info!)

I don't smoke anymore and am not on chemo, so I am going to start taking these.

I asked my oncologist about B-6 because I have nueropathy in fingers and feet. It is supposed to help with that. I didn't know B-6 was an anti-oxident. I thought it was for nerve damage. I could be wrong, someone correct me if I am wrong. Anyway, my onc. said it was OK to take

B-6, B-12 and Folic Acid. Has anyone heard anything different?

Thank You

God Bless and praying for a "Cure" for all of us...
