Abstract Does beta-carotene increase, rather than decrease, human lung cancer rates? A large body of observational epidemiologic study has demonstrated that individuals who eat more fruits and vegetables rich in carotenoids and/or who have higher levels of serum beta-carotene have a lower risk of cancer, particularly lung cancer. This inverse relationship has been particularly strong in lung cancer patients with a history of heavy smoking. However, there is contradictory evidence from recent…

Vitamin A depletion induced by cigarette smoke is associated with an increase in lung cancer-related markers in rats
TLDR
Findings from this study suggest that cigarette smoke-induced lung retinoic acid depletion may involve two independent pathways, RARα- and RARβ-mediated, responsible for the increased cancer risk associated with cigarette Smoke-induced vitamin A deficiency.
Different effect of beta-carotene on proliferation of prostate cancer cells.
Carotenoids and Cancer
TLDR
Observed associations between dietary patterns and cancer mortality and morbidity have led to hypotheses about cause and effect relationships, which have been examined more specifically in laboratory studies of biological activities of dietary constituents, case-control and cohort studies within populations, and clinical trials.
Carotenoids: How Effective Are They to Prevent Age-Related Diseases?
TLDR
Understanding the role of carotenoids in ARD would provide insights into a potential intervention that may affect the aging process, and subsequently promote healthy longevity.

In a recent issue of The Journal of Nutrition, Huang et al. (1) reported that lycopene inhibits experimental metastasis of human hepatoma SK-Hep-1 cells in athymic nude mice. In that study, lycopene
Can Food Supplements Combat Cancer: An Insight
TLDR
This paper attempts to focus on promising therapeutic potential of nutraceuticals and highlight their chemical constituents in deadly disease like cancer.
Carotenoids in Aquatic Ecosystems and Aquaculture: A Colorful Business with Implications for Human Health
TLDR
The role of carotenoids in aquatic food webs, both in the wild and in aquaculture, and its relevance for human health are discussed.
Bioactive chemicals from carrot (Daucus carota) juice extracts for the treatment of leukemia.
TLDR
It is shown that extracts from carrots can induce apoptosis and cause cell cycle arrest in leukemia cell lines, suggesting that carrots may be an excellent source of bioactive chemicals for the treatment of leukemia.

TLDR
Recently, many cellular oncogenes were identified in human cancerous cells by the DNA transfection method, some of which were found to contain sequences related with already known viral oncogenees.
