An update of the WCRF/AICR systematic literature review on esophageal and gastric cancers and citrus fruits intake.

​Esophageal and gastric cardia cancers are less likely to occur among frequent consumers of citrus fruits.

The objective of this study was to determine the role citrus fruits play in the prevention of esophageal and gastric (stomach) cancers. Researchers conducted a meticulous meta-analysis on data extracted from eligible studies on the topic.

Researchers discovered that increased consumption of citrus fruits decreased the odds of developing cancerous cells and tumors in the esophagus and cardia region of the stomach. In contrast, high dietary ingestion of citrus fruits did not affect the risk of developing cancer in the non-cardia part of the stomach in this study. Data from this study suggest that citrus fruits may be beneficial in the prevention of esophageal and gastric cardia cancers.
