Dietary fiber and breast cancer risk: a systematic review and meta-analysis of prospective studies.
Breast cancer is less likely to occur in regular consumers of fiber-rich foods.
This study examined the relationship between dietary fiber intake and breast cancer risk by meta-analysis. Sixteen (16) prospective cohort studies were included in this meta-analysis. Researchers observed high ingestion of dietary fiber decreased the likelihood of developing breast cancer. The findings of this study reveal that diets loaded with fiber-rich foods may help inhibit the development of cancerous cells and tumors in the breast.
