Cancer can be caused by a vitamin A deficiency

Want to prevent cancer? Then load up on vitamin A. Vitamin A can actually help turn pre-cancer cells back to normal cells, according to the International Journal of Oncology. But vitamin A does very little to treat full-blown cancer. The key is in prevention of course. Could cancer be a symptom of vitamin A deficiency? Normal cells undergo many changes before they become cancerous or aggressively metastatic, but scientists recently found that vitamin A only helps healthy and precancerous cells. Vitamin A actually helps precancerous cells to change their genetic signature back to normal by modulating the epigenome. Vitamin A is required for health skin and other epithelial cells (like the lining of the gut and the lungs). Even contracting measles has been associated with vitamin A deficiency. Vitamin A helps with hair loss. Slow healing cuts and scrapes? Could be you are vitamin A deficient.
