Dietary fiber intake reduces risk for Barrett's esophagus and esophageal cancer.

​High dietary ingestion of foods rich in fiber may help to ward off esophageal cancer and Barrett's esophagus.

This study examined the role a high-fiber diet play in the prevention of Barrett's esophagus and esophageal cancer. A team of scientists from China and USA systematically reviewed data from 15 studies that evaluated the fiber intake levels and Barrett's esophagus and esophageal cancer odds ratios of 16,885 subjects.

The research team discovered that individuals in the highest category of fiber consumption exhibited lower risk of developing Barrett's esophagus and esophageal cancer than their counterparts who ate little or no fiber-rich foods. According to this study, a 31% reduction in the risk of Barrett's esophagus and esophageal cancer was associated with the intake of an extra 10 grams of dietary fiber per day. The results of this study support the hypothesis that increased dietary ingestion of high-fiber foods can help to cut down the risk of having Barrett's esophagus and esophageal cancer.
