Vitamin A, smoking, and cancer

Recommended Posts

We were at the eye doctor today. There was an article on his bulletin board about supplements for better eye health. In big bold print it said Vitamin A should not be taken by smokers as some studies suggest it contributes to the development of lung cancer. I have never heard this before but it might be worth some research if you are doing a lot of vitamins.

My herbologist told me this years ago, so he never had me on any Vitamin A or beta carotene. However, he told me it was ok to have natural Vitamin A (with food, i.e. sweet potatoes, etc.). He said it was only the supplements I couldn't have.
