Gastric cancer and allium vegetable intake: a critical review of the experimental and epidemiologic evidence.

Regular consumption of allium vegetables, especially onions and garlic, may cut down stomach cancer risk.

This research work investigated the evidence that supports the hypothesis that high intake of allium, vegetables confers significant protection against gastric cancer. Researchers conducted a meticulous meta-analysis on data extracted from over 25 epidemiologic and case-control studies.

Almost all the studies reviewed reported that subjects who consumed the highest quantities of allium vegetables, particularly onions and garlic, had lower stomach cancer risk than those who consumed the least amount. The findings of this meta-analysis show that high allium vegetable diets may help prevent the development of cancerous cells in the stomach.
