The Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia are claiming that a nutrient in carrots may help reduce your breast cancer risk in early stages of the disease. However, it is ineffective once a certain stage of cancer development has been passed.
Retinoic acid, a form of Vitamin A, also rejuvenates the skin and is often used in anti-aging face creams.
The research centres on the role of a gene called RAR-beta, which the experts believe reacts with retinoic acid when the two come into contact with each other, resulting in retinoic acid’s anti-cancer capabilities being activated. This research could hopefully lead to promising treatments for the early stages of cancer.
Retinoic acid is also found in sweet potatoes, green leafy veg, papayas, apricots, and mangoes.
