Antioxidant Intake From Fruits, Vegetables and Other Sources and Risk of non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma: The Iowa Women's Health Study

​Women who enjoy consuming fruits and vegetables loaded with antioxidants may have a low probability of developing non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

​This study assessed whether dietary exposure to antioxidants is tied to lower risk of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in women. Researchers followed and evaluated 35,159 women recruited from Iowa's Women Health Study with regards to their diet and health for a duration of 19 years. 

Researchers found out that high intake of fruits and vegetables packed with antioxidants diminished the risk of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. This study provides strong evidence that habitual consumption of antioxidants from fruits and vegetables may exert a protective effect against the occurrence of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in women.
