Carotenoid intake and risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma: a systematic review and dose-response meta-analysis of observational studies.

A decline in non-Hodgkin lymphoma risk is associated with frequent consumers of foods high in carotenoids, such as alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, and beta-cryptoxanthin.

The aim of this study was to assess the association between the consumption of dietary carotenoids and the odds of developing non-hodgkin lymphoma by meta-analysis. A total of 7 case-control and 3 cohort studies were included in this meta-analysis.

The team of investigators discovered that generous intake of foods rich in alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, and beta-cryptoxanthin decreased the risk of having non-hodgkin lymphoma. According to this study, every extra 100ug of alpha-carotene consumed was found to cut down the risk of developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma by 13%. The results of this study indicate that increased consumption of foods packed with carotenoids, particularly alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, and beta-cryptoxanthin may offer individuals with significant protection against non-hodgkin lymphoma.
