 Beta Carotene
Beta carotene is plentiful in vegetables and fruits, and is beneficial in this form.
The problem is partly the smoking, partly the beta carotene, and partly the oxygen-rich environment of the lungs.
Beta carotene is oxidized as it inactivates the free radicals from cigarette smoke, and its antioxidant capacity is "used up." In the process, it can turn into a pro-oxidant or form oxidized by-products, particularly if adequate amounts of vitamins C and E aren't present.

 Interloping Scripts
The real justification for their disjunction, where other letters have been borrowed into the IPA from Greek, is that they are not limited to phonetic usage; they have been adopted in the widely used, and largely IPA-based, Practical Orthography of African languages.
The mathematical typesetting of Greek letters in an overall Latin context has developed its own tradition, which Haralambous (§2) spends a little time discussing; it includes the obligatory italicising of Greek, and the preference for closed phi and theta, and distinctive glyphs for alpha and gamma.
This is resolved for Latin mathematical letters in a Latin context by the use of italics—or of plenty of indentation.

 AEGiS-BETA: Letter From The Editor: We've Come a Long Way… Haven't We? - Winter, 2001
Whatever the case may be, the very name "BETA" is an anachronism, hearkening back to the clinic of the early days of the epidemic.
When the first issue of BETA appeared fourteen years ago, any conceivable treatment for HIV infection was experimental, so the Bulletin of Experimental Treatments for AIDS was an entirely relevant, non-ironic name.
Published in June 1988, the first issue of BETA consisted of a single, six-page article entitled and concerning "AZT." At that time AZT had received limited approval for use in people with AIDS and severe ARC, or AIDS-related complex, a diagnosis no longer in popular use that involved clinical manifestations of immune impairment.

 Statistics Explained   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-10)
Statisticians use the Greek letter beta to indicate the probability of failing to reject the hypothesis tested when that hypothesis is false and a specific alternative hypothesis is true.
For a given test, the value of beta is determined by the previously elected value of alpha, certain features of the statistic that is being calculated (particularly the sample size) and the specific alternative hypothesis that is being entertained.
While it is possible to carry out a statistical test without entertaining a specific alternative hypothesis, neither beta nor power can be calculated if there is no specific alternative hypothesis.

 Beta Codes   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-10)
For the Thesaurus Linguae Graecae project of the University of California at Irvine, a method for representing Greek characters in ASCII was devised, called Beta Codes.
Most of the Greek letters are represented by their Roman phonetic equivalents, except for eta (H), theta (Q), xi (C), psi (Y), omega (W), and Digamma (V), which are represented by a Roman letter that is similar in appearance to the Greek letter.
For purposes of writing numbers, the standard Beta Code is extended with lower and upper primes (written <>), qoppa (written @) and sampi (written #); for example the Greek numerals for 2,996 are written `'.

 The Greek Alphabet   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-10)
Besides this word, direct evidence for beta comes from a fragment of Attic comedy where it is said that the voice of the sheep is BH-BH.
The name of the letter is pronounced “lamtha” ([b] is eliminated because it is difficult to pronounce it between [m] and [th]).
Now, there are three letters for [i] in the alphabet (eta, iota, and upsilon), pronounced identically, and two letters for [o] (omicron and omega), also pronounced identically.
