    ok, snake oil reasons...
     
    first off, out of the 3 links, only one works dude.
     
    1) "This chain reaction (free radicals) may lead to chronic diseases such as cancer".
    What on this earth doesnt lead to cancer? The fact this statement isn't backed up by a reference to a medical journal further enhances why the author has to write "may", rather than "will". 
    I may flap my arms but it doesn't mean i will become a bird.
     
    2) "The protective role of glutathione is also extended to detoxifying foreign compounds and cancer-causing substances."
    What is defined as a toxin? This is an article well suited to OK magazine or "womens weekly" as the daily carrot diet has more "detox-ability" probably....if the audience was even told what these toxins were.
    Cancer causing compounds....such as? How purposefully vague!
    Is this sold in the back of cosmo?
     
    3) "The body has the ability to create enough cysteine to meet its needs and most high-protein foods contain adequate amounts for healthy people. Foods that provide cysteine include cottage cheese, oats, yogurt and chicken."
    So the body already produces enough to suit our needs and seeing bodybuilders have a chicken rife diet, lets say that base is covered?
     
    4) Large doses, exceeding 7 g, of cysteine can be toxic
    Lets say the answer to the OP's original question is under 7g...
     
    I have some magic beans, it will reduce the effect of deadly cancer toxins out there that may lead to your eventual cancerous death! only £30 a tub... how many shall i mark you down for?

     Yes all anti-oxidants have potential to be toxic at very high doses, I wasn`t planning on taking grams of the stuff 
    The main point of my argument is that it acts as a precursor to glutathione, which is one of the major endogenous "anti-oxidants"/ anti-toxins in our bodies.
    Supplementation of Cysteine has been shown to increase levels of glutathione.
     
    I will pass on the Magic beans thanks .

    There are a few good studies on this supplement, I use it and it helps with my asthma.

    Well I aint got cancer lol
    I just take the LiverMilk for overall liver health although I've never taken any steroids etc.
    Can't say I've noticed anything that I could attribute to NAC plus it's only 1 of about 7 ingredients in LiverMilk. LiverMilk is relatively cheap too imo.

    Haaahaha... great reply Aaron Hallett!  Love the bird comment!
     
    And yes, the humble carrot is most efficient at providing you with a veritable plethora of healthy goodness and antioxidants, especially if you mix up different coloured varieties.  See here and here for some interesting reads.
     
    I would actually favor drinking lots of water and a good dose of raw carrots (& other veg) over coughing up for NAC, even if it is cheap as chips.
     
    But watch out... too many carrots can be toxic too!!
