Due to my familys history of having a poor immune systems, obesity, and blindness, I added foods to my diet which help prevent certain infections. In the past, I never paid attention to what I put inside my body and I didnt care about how it could affect me or my family later one in life. Disease was the least of my worries until it came so close to home.

Also beta-carotene, which has all the chemical relatives of Vitamin A, in some cases, increases the frequency of lung and prostate cancer. Individuals should not consume beta-carotene unless they need it for concern to the sun (Living strong, 2012).
