Vegetable and fruit intakes and risk of Barrett's esophagus in men and women.

​Regular intake of fruits and vegetables may help thwart the development of Barrett's esophagus, a known risk factor for esophageal cancer.

Barrett's esophagus is an established risk factor for esophageal cancer. This study evaluated the connection between high dietary ingestion of fruits and vegetables and the occurrence of Barrett's esophagus in men and women. Researchers examined the diets of 170 patients newly diagnosed with Barrett's esophagus and 182 healthy persons. 

Researchers observed that the fruit and vegetable consumption rates of patients with Barrett's esophagus were far lower than that of the healthy subjects. Data from this study indicate that diets packed with fruits and vegetables may be vital for the prevention of Barrett's esophagus in men and women.
