Study: Vitamin A lowers risk of melanoma
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- If you love to soak up the rays on the beaches in Southern California, you might want to add vitamin A to your diet.
According to a new, six-year study just published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, vitamin A reduces your risk of getting a deadly form of skin cancer.
Researchers found that people taking vitamin A supplements were 60 percent less likely to develop melanoma. The reduced risk was stronger in women than men.
Vitamin A is naturally found in foods like sweet potatoes, carrots, spinach, eggs and milk.
