Broccoli could be key to the treatment of pancreatic cancer

Vitamin A, found in everyday veg such as broccoli and carrots, could treat pancreatic cancer.

The disease, which killed actor Patrick Swayze in 2009, takes 7,500 British lives a year. But researchers found that injecting vitamin A into healthy cells surrounding the cancer helped to combat it.

Dr Hemant Kocher, of Barts and The London NHS Trust, said: “We found that paying attention to the non-cancerous tissue surrounding the cancer is as important as focusing on the cancer. It’s a significant milestone in the battle against this disease.”
