Fruits and vegetables consumption and risk of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma: a meta-analysis of observational studies.

Adequate intake of diets high in both fruits and vegetables may help guard against the development of non-Hodgkin lymphoma

This research work was carried out to determine the role of high dietary intake of fruits and vegetables in the prevention of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Researchers systematically reviewed data from cohort and case-control studies that investigated the correlation between fruit and vegetable intake and non-Hodgkin lymphoma risk.

The team of investigators discovered that frequent consumers of vegetables and diets rich in both fruits and vegetables had less chances of developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Generous intake of vegetables was associated with a decrease in the risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma subtypes, such as follicular lymphoma and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, but not chronic lymphocytic leukemia and small lymphocytic leukemia. According to this study, Increased consumption fruits was found to have no significant effect on non-Hodgkin lymphoma risk. The findings of this meta-analysis reveal that non-Hodgkin lymphoma is less likely to occur among high consumers of diets dominated by both fruits and vegetables.
