    There is a 10-15 percent risk reduction of squamous cell skin cancers with higher intake of plant phytochemicals (retinol/vitamin A1 and carotenoids). The majority of vitamin A intake from the study participants was derived from diet, not from supplements.

    This study is consistent with others that compare food vs. supplements. A study from earlier this year also showed that nutrients found in food, not supplements, held the most powerful factors to help reduce the risk of death and cancer.
