    Antioxidant therapy and free radicals have attracted in a lot of consideration in recent years. Antioxidants are compounds that destroy the free radicals in the body, thereby preventing harmful oxidation-reduction reactions. Antioxidants are important for maintaining good health. The best sources of antioxidants are fruits and vegetables, which provide a variety of antioxidants such as Vitamins A, C, E, and carotenoids. Data that are presently available are compatible with the notion that these vitamins act as chemopreventives against some important cancers such as carotenoids for lung cancer, ascorbic acid for salivary gland cancer, and tocopherols for head-and-neck cancers. Hence, a greater consumption of fruits and vegetables should be encouraged as they are the natural sources of these chemopreventive antioxidants along with other protective factors packaged by nature
