London: Intake of vitamin A in diet could help treat several forms of cancer due to its ability to control the malignant cells, a new study has found. Scientists have hailed the discovery as a "new dawn" in cancer treatment after finding a link between malignant cells and lack of vitamin A. Experts at the University of York found that cancer cells are under control of a derivative of the vitamin, known as retinoic acid, the `Daily Express` reported.
