This research work was carried out to determine the relationship between regular intake of citrus fruits and the risk of esophageal cancer by meta-analysis. 6 cohort and 13 case-control studies were included in this meta-analysis. Researchers observed that consistent consumers of citrus fruits had slim chances of developing esophageal cancer. The results of this meta-analysis indicate that generous consumption of citrus fruits may confer significant protection against the development of esophageal cancer.
