Personally, I cut out all supps several years back, but for hassle and economic aspect than scientific rationale.

I think that refers to the excess of antioxydants, especially in supplements, which may prevent the natural signalling action of ROS.

I have my strong doubts that natural antioxidants may exhibit that action, that would imply that some natural constituents of foods are carcinogens.

As to the antioxidants produced by the body from the article it's not clear what they are. Maybe the web article refers to those produced by the body s a response to anomalous tumor cells signalling. Maybe from the original article more details would become apparent.
