Different types of fruit intake and colorectal cancer risk: A meta-analysis of observational studies

Adopting a diet rich in certain types of fruits, including citrus, apples, water melon, and kiwi, may help curtail the development of colorectal cancer.

This meta-analysis looked at the ingestion of specific fruits in relation to colorectal cancer (CRC) risk. Dietary and health records obtained from over 1.5 million persons were analyzed for this study.

Data analysis revealed that consistent consumers of fruits, such as citrus, apples, water melon, and kiwi, had better chances of slashing their odds of suffering from colorectal cancer. "This meta-analysis provides further evidence that a higher intake of specific types of fruit is effective in preventing the occurrence of CRC," the researchers concluded.
