Eat Fiber-Rich Food to Prevent Cancer: Study

A recent study has found that rich nutrition diet helps in preventing cancer. The study was carried out by a team of researchers from Loma Linda University, California. It has been informed that the study was funded by the US National Institute of Health. The findings of the study have been published in the journal Nutrition and Cancer.

For the study, the researchers assessed people’s diets and examined the risk of developing colorectal polyps, small growths in the lining of the bowel that can become cancerous. The study was conducted for a period of 26 years.

During the study, it was found that diet high in cooked green vegetables, dried fruit and brown rice were associated with a significantly lower risk of colorectal polyps. Legumes such as beans and other pulses were also linked to a lower risk, although results in this area were less robust. These foods are good sources of fiber, which helps maintain healthy bowels, as well as important nutrients.

However, it is important to note here that the study has some limitations. It has come to light that for the study the researcher analyzed the food intake of people occasionally and not on regular basis. Therefore, many researchers raised questions over the authenticity of the study.
