A new study at the Colombia University reports that sufferers of childhood leukemia may be able to prevent or reduce some of the negative side effects caused by chemotherapy if they ate more fruit and vegetables. Fruit and vegetable consumption would increase their antioxidant and micronutrient level which is frequently low. Researchers found that children with higher levels of vitamins A, E and total carotenoids had fewer negative side effects such as infections and toxicity. If these findings are confirmed, children undergoing chemotherapy could benefit from eating a diet high in fruit and vegetable or at least supplements.
