Abstract

Asbestos-exposed workers and cigarette smokers have an increased risk for lung cancer. Experimental and epidemiologic data suggest that vitamin A (retinol and/or β-carotene) has anticancer effects. It is unclear, however, whether intervention with supplemental vitamin A can reduce the risk of lung cancer.
