New studies have found antioxidants and other vitamins (A, B, C, D, and E) to be beneficial when maintained at high levels to protect against radiation-induced free radicals. Dr. Kieran Murphy, a radiologist at the University of Toronto, believes that a combination of antioxidants taken daily can cut the damage done to DNA by even the most common radiation from CT scans by as much as 50%. Regular consumption of high-quality antioxidants is essential for maintaining optimal health.
