Beta-Carotene…does it increase risk of cancer?

November 11th, 2007

Question: from Marc

The WCRF have recently released the results from the research carried out looking into foods associated with increased risk of Cancer. I noticed that Beta carotene is a supplement they found to increase the risk of Lung Cancer and that your Total Balance contains 5000IU of this ingredient. Please let me know whether it is still safe to be taking this supplement.

Comment: from Warren Matthews of Xtend-Life

Joanna will answer this question, but I thought that I should first make a comment. This is another example of a misleading study. There is also a world of difference between taking NATURAL Beta-Carotene in conjunction with many other co-factors such as are present in Total Balance as opposed to taking a synthetic Beta-Carotene as a single stand alone ingredient which should never be ingested in that manner. To suggest that beta-carotene in a natural form in sensible quantities is risky is a bit like saying don’t eat your carrots because you may get Cancer. It is nonsense.
