Vitamin A against skin cancer

Squamo-cell carcinoma is the second most common type of skin cancer among people with fair skin. Vitamin A is notoriously essential for the good growth and maturation of skin cells. A study led by Eunyoung Cho, associate professor of dermatology at Brown University (Usa), delved into the topic in the Journal of the American Medical Association Dermatology.

Foods with vitamin A are not only sweet potatoes and carrots, used in the study, but also green leafy vegetables and fruit, such as apricots and melon. At the same time, milk and certain types of fish are rich in vitamin A. "Skin cancer is difficult to prevent, but this study suggests that a diet rich in vitamin A, combined with lower sun exposure and the use of sunscreen may be a good way to decrease the risk of developing this type. of cancer” says Dr. Cho.
