Vegetable intake and the risk of bladder cancer in the BLadder Cancer Epidemiology and Nutritional Determinants (BLEND) international study

Avid consumption of vegetables may help ward off bladder cancer in women.

This study sets out to answer the question: can frequent intake of vegetables curb the development of bladder cancer? Researchers utilized data extracted from 555,685 individuals who took part in 13 studies. 

Researchers discovered that routine consumption of vegetables diminished the risk of bladder cancer in women, but not in men. This study highlights the positive impact of high vegetable diet on bladder health in women.
