BHT, distantly related in structure to vitamin E, is an antioxidant that was once widely used to protect food from damage
by oxidation and microorganisms. It is frequently used as an anti-aging supplement.
(I3C) inhibits hormonal pathways involved in the development of cancers such as
breast, cervical, colon, ovarian, and prostate cancers, and laryngeal
is used as a preventative — it cannot inhibit tumors once they have started.
When a precancerous condition is detected, an I3C supplement may prevent
progression to cancer or even bring about a remission. A
complete remission of Cervical Dysplasia is obtained in about 50% of cases when
I3C is taken orally at 200-400 mg/day for 12 weeks.
