Association between vitamin C intake and lung cancer: a dose-response meta-analysis.

​Regular consumption of foods high in vitamin C may help cut down the risk of developing lung cancer.

This study investigated the correlation between the intake of vitamin C and the likelihood of developing lung cancer. Researchers analyzed nutritional and clinical data extracted from 21 studies that reviewed 8,393 cases of lung cancer.

Researchers found a significant protective association between increased dietary ingestion of foods packed with vitamin C and lung cancer. The risk of lung cancer was found to decrease by 7% for every 100mg of vitamin C consumed per day. The results of this study show that high dietary intake of vitamin C may protect individuals against the development of lung cancer.
