Beta Carotene and smokers very important!
Taking supplements with beta carotene vs. vitamin A causes a greater risk of lung cancer.

Re: Beta Carotene and smokers very important!
"The smokers took part in two ill-starred clinical trials testing whether beta-carotene and vitamin A could prevent lung cancer. Nearly everybody thought it would work. And they were wrong. Lung cancer, heart disease, and death from all causes shot up in those who took high-dose beta-carotene.

In the Finnish ATBC study of 29,000 male smokers, 20 mg beta-carotene supplements taken over six years were linked to lung cancer. In the U.S. CARET study of more than 18,000 male and female smokers and male asbestos workers, 30 mg beta-carotene supplements over four years were linked to a 28% higher risk of lung cancer and a 17% higher risk of deaths from all causes compared with smokers taking a placebo.

Both studies were halted: ATBC in 1994 and CARET in 1996. But study participants are suffering lingering damage, according to a report in the Dec. 1 issue of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute."

In compliance with 50% thingy.

Please listen here dear smokers you need to find supplements with Vitamin A rather than Beta Carotene.

These so called "scientists" lie about everything.They even have the balls to tell us NOT to take more than 400IU's of Vitamin a day, when actually your body produces about 30,000 IU's with just 30 minutes of sun exposure! I don't trust any of them!

Well trust the study, more people end up with lung cancer using beta carotene as smokers vs. taking vitamin A. It's hard to find but it's there.

Re: Beta Carotene and smokers very important!
I am a smoker. I enjoy it. The article assumes that if you smoke you will get lung cancer--not true.

The stats on lung cancer are no more conclusive in smokers than non-smokers--yeah, that is why the big tobacco companies did not go down legally speaking. They were sued for not devuldging the accuracy of what they were putting in cigaretts,,,not about cancer.

I do believe the vitamin A may play a good role though.

Several years ago I took a higher than normal dose of Vitamine A for a few weeks and got very sick--watch your dosage.

Good advice, but the article rings true. Look it up yourself. There are several studies on this issue.
