In brief: Probably not

Although antioxidants are good for you, the data showing prevention or reducing risk of cancer is not convincing.

In brief: No

People selling this stuff have no reason not to mislead.
Epidemiology studies generate huge amounts of junk, and the literature on "fruits and vegetables and their relation to cancer" is so massively contradictory and inconsistent to leave me satisfied that there's probably no measurable real effect. And do not place your trust in anything to keep you from getting your usual cancer screening.
