Intake of cruciferous vegetables is associated with reduced risk of ovarian cancer: a meta-analysis.

Adequate intake of cruciferous vegetables may help guard against the development and proliferation of cancerous cells in the ovary.

This study investigated the relationship between dietary ingestion of cruciferous vegetables and the occurrence of ovarian cancer. Researchers meticulously reviewed data on cruciferous vegetable consumption and ovarian cancer risk obtained from 4 cohort and 4 case-control studies. They observed that high intake of cruciferous vegetables significantly decreased the odds of developing ovarian cancer. The findings of this meta-analysis provide further evidence that support the hypothesis that high ingestion of cruciferous vegetables may protect women against carcinomas of the ovary.
