    Fulltext.

    Conference on antioxidant vitamins and B-carotene in disease prevention. London (GBR), 1989/10/02.

    In 1971-1973 at the third examination of the Basel Study in 1959, the major antioxidant vitamins and carotene were measured in the plasma of 2974 men.

    A subsample and their families were reinvestigated in 1977-79.

    During the 12-y observation period (1973-85) 553 men died, 204 of cancer (lung cancer 68, stomach cancer 20; colon cancer 17, all other malignancies 99).

    We found significantly lower mean carotene levels for all cancer, bronchus cancer, and stomach cancer (all P<0.01) compared with 2421 survivors.

    The relative risk of subjects with low carotene (<0.23 mumol/L) was significantly elevated (P<0.05) for lung cancer (Cox's model).

    Higher risks were noted for all cancer (P<0.01) if both carotene and retinol were low.
