Food groups and renal cell carcinoma: results from a case-control study.

High consumption of diets rich in vegetables and tomatoes may cut down renal cancer development risk.

This study assessed the role of diet in the development and prevention of renal cancer. Using 70-item block food frequency questionnaires, researchers collated and analyzed data on the diets of 672 subjects. The relative risk of renal cancer in each of the subject was also ascertained.

Researchers discovered that frequent consumers of tomato and vegetables had low risk of developing renal cancer. On the other hand, a high renal cancer risk was observed among subjects with high dietary intake of red meat (both men and women) and white bread and dairy products (women only). No relationship was found between fruit consumption and renal carcinoma in this study. The results of this study show that regular intake of diets high in white bread, red meat, and dairy products may contribute positively to the development of cancerous cells in the kidney.
