Vegetables, fruit and risk of non-gallstone-related acute pancreatitis: a population-based prospective cohort study.

​The probability of developing non-gallstone-related acute pancreatitis is low among high consumers of fruits and vegetables.

This study evaluated how increased intake of fruits and vegetables affect an individual's chances of developing non-gallstone-related acute pancreatitis. Researchers monitored the diets and incidence rates of non-gallstone-related acute pancreatitis in a cohort consisting of 80,015 cancer- and cardiovascular disease-free men and women aged 46 – 86 years  for a duration of 12 years.

Researchers observed that high consumers of fruits and vegetables exhibited low risk of having non-gallstone-related acute pancreatitis. A 17% reduction in the risk of non-gallstone-related acute pancreatitis was associated with every extra 2 servings of fruits and vegetables consumed per day. The findings of this study reveal that fruits and vegetables may play a key role in protecting individuals against non-gallstone-related acute pancreatitis.
