Vitamin A, a bi-polar molecule formed by bonds between carbon and hydrogen, is a fat soluble vitamin which can not be stored in the liver but it can be converted from beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant. The vitamin is best known fir its strong effects in improving vision and enhancing bone growth.

Provitamin A carotenoid β-cryptoxanthin (BCX) supplement may be associate to lower risk and treatment of lung cancer. 
According to Tufts University, BCX significantly reduced the multiplicity of the NNK-induced lung tumor by 52% to 63% compared with the NNK-treated mice without BCX supplementation, in the study of 4-[methyl nitrosamino]-1-[3-pyridyl]-1-butanone (NNK)-induced lung tumorigenesis in A/J mice.

Lung cancer is a condition of the abnormal growth of the cells in the lung's tissue. Most common form of primary lung cancers are derived from epithelial cells. In Us, Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths, causing 158,683 people deaths, including 88,329 men and 70,354 women, according to 2007 statistic.

Dr. Iskandar AR, the lead researchers said, "The activities of BCX were significantly attenuated by activators of α7-nAChR/PI3K(immune system) signaling or by overexpression of constitutively active PI3K(cell cycle division). Collectively, the results suggest that BCX inhibits".

Other researchers suggested that over expression of lung cancer tissues may be also associate to the abnormal function of retinoid metabolism. caused by changes in the expression of 23 genes that regulate retinoid metabolism and signaling in non-small-cell lung cancer tumors compared to adjacent normal tissues.

The random-effect model used to estimate the relative risk (RR) and their 95% CI in a total of 19 studies comprising 10,261 lung cancer cases met the inclusion criteria, insisted higher category of dietary β-carotene intake could reduce lung cancer risk (0.768 (0.675-0.874)).
The associations were also significant in American and Asian populations. In conclusions, higher category of dietary β-carotene and vitamin A intakes could reduce the risk of lung cancer.

In fact, risk of lung cancer is increased for smokers as the result of depletion of vitamin A in the body induced imbalance of protein expression in the retinoic acid receptor.

Taking altogether, dietary vitamin A exposure,  change life style are associate to reduced risk of lund cancer while vitamin A deficiency is increased risk of the diseases.
