Debunking The Myths and Misconceptions of Supplement Usage Among Cancer Survivors
Studies show that many cancer patients initiate dietary supplement use after a cancer diagnosis. By seeking ways to improve overall health, many believe that supplements can boost their immune system, increase nutrients, and add years to their life. The internet is filled with information, but this may leave you with many more questions.
Please join our MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper expert Dr. Pallav Mehta as he discusses the truth around supplement usage and debunks the myths and misconceptions.
This free online discussion will address the following:
- Can supplements prevent or cure certain diseases?
- Are supplements safe and approved by the FDA?
- Are single-source supplements better than a multivitamin combination?
- Since supplements are natural, they must be good for you, right?
