Can Vitamin A Cause Cancer?

For those undergoing a bout of eye difficulties, you may be recommended Viteyes Original supplements to protect them. What this means however, is that you are also taking Vitamin A, which is said to be a cause of lung cancer, as well as vitamins C and E, zinc and copper. Overall, to help with one condition is to leave yourself vulnerable to others.

That being said, an age-related condition known as AMD, which mainly affects the central part of the retina at the back of the eye, is responsible for your main vision – it means that when you look at something, it becomes blurry and unrecognisable. It can become quite discomforting. The causes of AMD are dependent on its type; “dry” AMD is when the retina is damaged due to a lack of nutrients, whilst “wet” AMD is due to abnormal blood vessels developing under the macula (a yellow spot near the back of the eye).

It is found that taking some supplements that are high in vitamins C and E, as well as beta-carotene and zinc can reduce the chances of developing AMD by 25%. If you are a smoker, then consult your doctor about taking these supplements.

If vitamin A is the issue when it comes to lung cancer, then you do not need a further reason to harm yourself – tread carefully. Whilst you are benefiting your body in one way, the question you should also be asking is what you’re doing to it as well. We take many things for granted; whether it is sight or smell or touch, they are an every day sensation that we enjoy relying upon – they are a part of us. By taking it away, we are suddenly left stumbling and unsure of what to do.

Don’t leave yourself complacent – your complaints to the doctor may in fact save you.
