Does Vitamin A Reduce Skin Cancer Risk?
New research examined almost 80,000 people over more than a quarter of a century to investigate a possible link between vitamin A intake and squamous cell carcinoma, the second-most common form of skin cancer.
The study was carried out by researchers from the Warren Alpert Medical School and the Brown School of Public Health, in Providence, RI, Harvard Medical School, in Boston, MA, and Inje University, in Seoul, South Korea.
Analysing data from 75,150 women and 48,400 men over more than 26 years. They determined participants’ vitamin A intake from detailed dietary surveys completed every four years.
The researchers found that people with a higher intake of vitamin A had a lower risk of developing cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma. More research is needed to understand the relationship between vitamin intake and cancer risk.
