Auckland: Vitamin C could play a key role in fighting cancer.

People with cancer cells should have more vitamin C to limit tumour growth, a research led by Margreet Vissers, associate professor at the University of Otago, has said.

"Our results offer a promising and simple intervention to help in our fight against cancer, at the level of both prevention and cure," Vissers was quoted as saying by the New Zealand Herald.

The study has been published in the latest issue of the Cancer Research journal.
