Increased consumption of high fiber diets may significantly cut down esophageal and gastric cardia cancer risks.
This research work assessed the role regular ingestion of dietary fiber play in the prevention of cancers of the esophagus and stomach. Researchers examined the dietary fiber intake of a large number of subjects. The esophageal and gastric cardia cancer odds ratios of all the subjects were also evaluated.
Researchers observed that subjects with high intake of diets rich in fiber had slim chances of developing cancerous cells in the esophagus and cardia region of the stomach. The findings of this study show that generous consumption of high fiber diets may confer significant protection against esophageal and gastric cardia cancers.
