Can antioxidants feed bacteria/mold?

I've come to realise that antioxidants make my fatigue better but gives me air hunger. When I get air hunger I also get a deep pop in my sinuses. I'm now working with the theory that I have mold or bacterial infections in the sinuses.

So perhaps the antioxidants work at dealing with the damage from the toxins, but at the same time the bacteria/mold feeds off them and hence my airways get implicated. My illness began with just air hunger and sinus popping and when it went away, I was a CFS sufferer.

Just putting the theory out there.
