Higher Vitamin A Intake Linked To Lower Risk Of Skin Cancer


New research has found that a higher intake of vitamin A is linked to a lower risk of squamous cell carcinoma, a common form of skin cancer.


Skin cancer is the most common of all types of cancers. While melanoma is the most feared skin cancer, non-melanoma skin cancers such as squamous cell carcinoma are far more common.

Research conducted by scientists at the Dr. Rath Research Institute has shown that a combination of vitamin C, lysine, proline and other micronutrients may be protective against non-melanoma skin cancer. Investigating the effects of this combination on non-melanoma skin cancer cell lines, they have proven it is effective in inhibiting the growth and spread of the disease.
