The lung is one of the vital organs in human located near the backbone on either side of the heart with functions of inhaling oxygen from the air then transporting them to the bloodstream to nourish the body cells need and exhaling carbon dioxide from the bloodstream.
Lung cancer is a chronic and medical condition characterized by abnormal growth of the cells in the lung’s tissue.
According to the statistics provided by the American cancer society, Lung cancer accounts for 14% of all new cancers diagnosed in the US. In 2018, there were about 234,030 new cases of lung cancer (121,680 in men and 112,350 in women). Lung cancer also causes the death of 83,550 in men and 70,500 in women in the same year.
Non-small cell lung cancer is the most common type of lung cancer that usually grows and spreads methodically and predictably. Most common types of Non-small cell lung cancer lung cancers include
* Small cell lung cancer
Small cell lung cancer is a fast-growing type of lung cancer, that can spread to distant parts of the body in a relatively early stage. Most common types of small cell lung cancer include
* Small cell carcinoma is small, round and resemble oats.
Carotenoids is a class of mainly yellow, orange, or red fat-soluble pigments, including lycopene and carotene, found abundantly in ripe tomato, pumpkins, carrots, corn, and daffodils.
On finding a potential compound for the treatment of lung cancer, researchers to compare the dietary intake and serum levels of some selected carotenoids of lung cancer patients with healthy subjects.
* Daily intake of fruits and vegetables in the cancer group was higher compared to control group.
However, the serum concentration of beta-carotene and lycopene were 118% and 60% higher in the control group compared to the lung cancer group.
These results suggested that there must be some unknown mechanisms associated with the reduced levels of beta-carotene and lycopene in the blood of lung cancer patients.
Intake of carotenoids in the form of supplement should be taken with extreme care to prevent overdose acute liver toxicity.
