Habitual consumption of foods loaded with vitamin A and beta-carotene may protect individuals against lung cancer.

This study examined high intake of foods rich in vitamins A and beta-carotene in relation to the development of lung cancer. Researchers conducted a meticulous meta-analysis on data extracted from 19 publications. They discovered that increased consumption of foods containing high amounts of vitamin A and beta-carotene decreased the risk of developing lung cancer. The results of this meta-analysis suggest that generous intake of foods high in vitamin A and beta-carotene may inhibit the development of cancerous cells and tumors in the lungs.
