Association between intake of antioxidants and pancreatic cancer risk: a meta-analysis.

Regular intake of foods loaded with antioxidant nutrients and vitamins, such as selenium, vitamin A, beta-carotene, vitamin C, and beta-cryptoxanthin, may help reduce the risk of developing pancreatic cancer.

This research work was carried out to determine the relationship between high dietary intake of foods rich in antioxidant vitamins and minerals, such as selenium, lutein, zeaxanthin, alpha-cryptoxanthin, beta-carotene, vitamin C, beta-cryptoxanthin, and vitamin A, and the odds of developing pancreatic cancer by meta-analysis. Researchers reviewed data and evidence obtained from 18 studies.

The team of investigators found out that high dietary ingestion of foods containing selenium, vitamin A, beta-carotene, vitamin C, and beta-cryptoxanthin diminished the risk of developing pancreatic cancer. In contrast, generous intake of diets loaded with foods high in lutein, zeaxanthin, alpha-carotene, and alpha-carotene was found to have no significant effect on pancreatic cancer risk in this study. The findings of this meta-analysis show that habitual consumption of foods loaded with selenium, vitamin A, beta-carotene, vitamin C, and beta-cryptoxanthin may confer individuals with significant protection against pancreatic cancer.
