In about three-fourths of these studies, high vitamin C in take significantly reduced the risk of cancer. Evidence of this safeguarding effect was especially' strong for cancers of the oral cavity, esopha gus, stomach and pancreas. Sub stantial evidence also exists that vitamin C can protect against cervical, rectal, breast and lung cancer. Vitamin C seems to act as an antioxidant in the blood stream, countering particles called free radicals that are formed by the body. Free radicals can damage cells. This damage is thought to be one of the first steps in the devel opment of cancer. Not getting enough vitamin C also has been linked to three major heart disease risks low density lipoproteins (LDL) cholesterol, high density lipoproteins (HDL) and high blood pressure. Recent research found that people who got the most vitamin C had more 1991 EGG INDUSTRY Contracts available for new layer & pullet houses.

They also were much less likely to have high blood pressure. One theory on heart disease is that it begins when LDL, the ma jor carrier of cholesterol in the blood, is oxidized in the blood by free radicals. Researchers have reason to believe oxidized LDL starts the formation of blood ves sel-clogging plaque that leads to atherosclerosis, hardening of the arteries. Although it may be tempting to take vitamin supplements, it’s bet ter to get needed nutrients from foods, simply because foods con tain many other nutrients.
