Diet is the most anti-cancer nutrients, β-carotene (vitamin A precursor), vitamin C and folic acid content in sweet potatoes are rich in all three. A small sweet potato (about 2 double) provides 2 times the amount of human daily requirement of vitamin A, one-third of the required daily amount of vitamin C and about 50 micrograms of folic acid; which is higher than a bowl of dietary fiber content oatmeal.
