Association of Intake of Whole Grains and Dietary Fiber With Risk of Hepatocellular Carcinoma in US Adults.

Generous intake of whole grains may confer an individual with significant protection against hepatocellular (liver) cancer.

​This study examined how high dietary ingestion of whole grains and other fiber-rich foods influences the risk of hepatocellular (liver) cancer. A group of researchers from China and the United States evaluated the dietary and health data of 125,455 US men and women with an average follow-up time of 24.2 years. 

The research team found out that participants who reported consistent consumption of generous portions of whole grains demonstrated a significant reduction in liver cancer risk. This study provides evidence that diets rich in whole grains seem to be protective against hepatocellular cancer.
