Can Fruit and Vegetables Reduce the Risk of Bladder Cancer in Women?

Friday, August 30th, 2013

logo1267406_mdA new study published in the journal Nutrition concluded that a higher consumption of fruits and vegetables lower the risk of invasive bladder cancer for women but not  men. Data was collected from 185,885 subjects who were part of the Multiethnic Cohort (MEC) established in 1993 to assess the relationship among dietary, lifestyle, genetic factors, and cancer risk. Data were- collectyed over 12.5 years and 581 invasive bladder cancer cases were diagnosed (152 women and 429 men).

After adjusting for factors related to cancer such as age, the researchers found that women who consumed the most fruit and vegetables had the lowest bladder cancer risk. For example, women who consumed the most yellow-orange vegetables were 52% less likely to have bladder cancer than women wo consumed the least of these vegetables. Women who consumed the highest intake of vitamin A,C and E also had the lowest risk of bladder cancer compared to women who consumed the least amount. Researchers said “Our study supports the fruit and vegetable recommendation for cancer prevention. However, further investigation is needed to understand and explain why the reduced cancer risk with higher consumption of fruit and vegetables was confined to only women.”

Do Fruit and Vegetables Influence the Risk of ER Breast Cancer?

Friday, February 1st, 2013

logo1267406_mdA new study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute concluded that there is no association between fruit and vegetable intake and risk of overall breast cancer, but vegetable intake is associated with a lower risk of estrogen receptor-negative (ER-) breast cancer. Data were analyzed from 20 cohort studies of women who were followed for a maximum of 11 to 20 years and who consumed low compared to high intakes of fruit and vegetables and had risk of developing breast cancer in each study. Data on study specific estimates were combined from all studies to generate a summary estimate for all studies combines. Results showed that total fruit and vegetable intake was statistically significantly¬† linked to a lower risk of ER- breast cancer, but not with risk of overall breast cancer or risk of ER+ breast cancer. Results showed lower risks were mostly associated with higher vegetable consumption. The researchers said “These findings support the value of examining etiologic factors in relation to breast cancer characterized by hormone receptor status in large pooled analyses because modest associations were less common breast cancer subtypes may have been missed in smaller studies.”

A Variety of Fruit and Vegetables May Reduce Risk of Squamous Cell Lung Cancer in Smokers

Wednesday, September 8th, 2010


A study in the Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention Journal concluded that adding a variety of vegetables to your diet may decrease the risk of getting lung cancer and adding a variety of fruit and vegetables may decrease the chances of both smokers and non-smokers getting squamous cell lung cancers. Even though quitting smoking is the best preventive method for reducing the risk of lung cancer eating a variety of fruit and vegetables may also reduce that risk.
Information was obtained from 452,187 individuals who completed the information and 1,613 of these were diagnosed with lung cancer. Data included information on 14 commonly eaten fruits and 26 commonly eaten vegetables that were fresh, canned or dried. Unlike previous studies that focused on quantity of fruit and vegetables and this study expanded to variety of these. For additional information see the original article.
