a relationship between vitamin A and fibroids....

...was observed in this study.  However I can't tell if it's a positive or inverse relationship -- in other words are higher levels of A associated with more or less fibroids?  (wish they would write these things in plain English)

I would like to read the whole study, but iy seems to link vitamins a and c with uterine fibroids growth. I would question if these were synthetic or natural instances of the vitamins, though. Our body really can't use A good amount of the synthetic derived vitamins (affecting the actual shape of the nutrient). I could see those in excess as harmful. But would too much natural vitamin a from juicing carrots have the same effect? Would there be a positive balance with all the additional vitamins, nutrients and enzymes found in veggies and fruit (whole or juiced)? I'm not sure I fully trust research that singles out the vitamin, as if it acts on it's own in nature, too.

Hi Karin, You raise some excellent points. I completely agree with you, these studies that just single out one thing in isolation are not really helpful at all!
