An article published in the International Journal of Oncology, retinoic acid (a very popular derivative of “A vitamin”, helps in turning the pre-cancer cells into normal breast cells. Retinoic acid helps to turn pre-cancer cells back to normal healthy breast cells, according to research published in the International Journal of Oncology.

Where vitamin A is available? This precursor of Vitamin A is found in most orange and green vegetables such as carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach, kale, and other leafy green vegetables. An amazing nutrient, it has been shown in research to protect the lungs against toxins that are linked to lung cancer.

The research published in J of oncology could help explain why some clinical studies have been unable to see a benefit of vitamin A on cancer: the vitamin doesn’t appear to change the course of full-blown cancer, only pre-cancerous cells, and only works at a very narrow dose.
