Carrots may have a profound and positive effect in reduced risk, progression and treatment of lung cancer, some scientists suggested.
Carrot, a root vegetable with orange color is a sub spices of Daucus carota, belongings to the family Apiaceae, native to Asian and Europe.

In the evaluation of a total of 417 lung cancer cases and 849 controls of a hospital-based case control with 'cases' of lung cancer patients diagnosed during the period 1979/80 at seven hospitals in the Lombardy region by interviewed on their life-long tobacco usage and their current intake of four food items rich in retinol or carotene, researcher found that risk of lung cancer increased 3-4 fold in current smokers who did not consume carrots in compared compared with those who ate them more than once a week.
The odd ratio of carrot consumption reduced significantly and linearly to risk of lung cancer.
However, among ex-smokers or non-smokers, intake of carrot did not offer a decrease of lung cancer risk.
Dr. Pisani P the lead author, after taking into account of other cofounder such as vegetables said, "The effect of carrots is independent of histological type of lung cancer while the effect of green vegetables was confined to epidermoid carcinomas".
Further analysis of the antiproliferative effect of retinoic acid amide found abundantly in carrot suggested that retinoic acid amide at dose of 30 μM expressed a significant activity in inhibition of lung cancer cell lines and clonogenic growth.
At the mean time, application of retinoic acid amide stimulated the decreased cyclin A, cyclin B1 in induction of cell mitosis, and Bcl-XL in expression of anti-apoptotic activity in lung cancer cell line by preventing the release of mitochondrial contents such as cytochrome c.
In compared to those of conventional medicine, Dr. Li HX, the lead author siad, "retinoic acid amide exhibits promising antiproliferative effects against human lung cancer cells in vitro and in vivo and enhances the antiproliferative effect of methotrexate".
The above differentiation were supported by the reviewing the 16 studies selected for elevation between lung cancer and vitamin A in humans, conducted by Dr. Palgi A.
However, due to limitation of several factors, researcher postulated, "(A sample size study with) more complete vitamin A indices, examination of the histological type of lung cancer, a large enough pool of both male and female patients for statistical analysis, and proper adjustment for the effects of age, sex, smoking, and socioeconomic status (are necessary for the viability".
