Preference for foods packed with cholesterol may foster the development of esophageal cancer.

This study investigated the link between high dietary exposure to cholesterol and the tendency to develop esophageal cancer. Researchers compiled data obtained from 12 studies. 

Researchers noted that the higher the frequency and amounts of cholesterol-rich foods consumed, the greater the likelihood of coming down with esophageal cancer. This study indicates that habitual consumption of foods filled with cholesterol may give rise to cancerous cells and tumors in the esophagus.
