Carotenoid intake and esophageal cancer risk: a meta-analysis.

​Regular consumption of foods high in carotenoids may help to inhibit the development of cancerous cells and tumors in the esophagus.

The objective of this research work was to analyzed data and evidence from studies that evaluated the association between the intake dietary carotenoids and the likelihood of developing esophageal cancer. Ten studies that examined 1,958 cases of esophageal cancer were included in this meta-analysis.

Researchers found a protective association between increased consumption of foods rich in carotenoids, such as beta-carotene, alpha- carotene, lycopene, beta-cryptoxanthin, lutein, and zeaxanthin, and esophageal cancer. In conclusion, the results of this study suggest that generous intake of foods loaded with carotenoids may confer individuals with significant protection against esophageal cancer.
