The etiology of epithelial ovarian cancer is unknown. Prior work suggests that high dietary fat intake is associated with an increased risk of this tumor, although this association remains speculative. A meta-analysis was performed to evaluate this suspected relationship. Using previously described methods, a protocol was developed for a meta-analysis examining the association between high vs. low dietary fat intake and the risk of epithelial ovarian cancer. Literature search techniques, study… Expand
Dietary fat intake and ovarian cancer risk: a meta-analysis of epidemiological studies
TLDR
The meta-analysis findings indicate that high consumption of total, saturated and trans-fats increase ovarian cancer risk, and different histological subtypes have different susceptibility to dietary fat. Expand
Dietary Fat Intake and Risk of Ovarian Cancer: A Systematic Review and Dose–Response Meta-Analysis of Observational Studies
TLDR
The findings of this meta-analysis suggest that dietary total, trans, saturated and partially monounsaturated fat as well as cholesterol intake are positively associated with increased risk of ovarian cancer. Expand
Dietary fat and fatty acid intake and epithelial ovarian cancer risk: evidence from epidemiological studies
TLDR
A meta-analysis of epidemiological studies suggests a lack of evidence for associations between dietary fat and FA intakes and EOC risk, and further analyses should be conducted to assess the associations with other types of fat. Expand
Dietary fat intake and risk of epithelial ovarian cancer by tumour histology
TLDR
It is suggested that higher intake of omega-3 may be protective for EOC overall and endometrioid tumours in particular, whereas greater consumption of trans fat may increase risk of E OC overall. Expand
Dietary fat intake and risk of ovarian cancer in the NIH-AARP Diet and Health Study
TLDR
Fat intake, especially from animal sources, was related to an increased risk of ovarian cancer, which may be modified by parity and oral contraceptive use, which warrants further investigation. Expand

TLDR
A Western dietary pattern might be associated with a higher risk of endometrial and ovarian cancer. Expand
Association between dietary intake and risk of ovarian cancer: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Recommendations to green leafy vegetables, allium vegetables, fiber, flavonoids and green tea intake for ovarian cancer prevention are supported, and acrylamide, nitrate, water disinfectants and polychlorinated biphenyls were significantly associated with an increased risk of ovarian cancer. Expand
Dietary fat intake and risk of epithelial ovarian cancer in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition.
TLDR
This study does not support an etiological role for total fat intake in relation to EOC risk; however, based on observations of a positive association between intake of polyunsaturated fat and invasive E OC risk, this fat subtype warrants further investigation to determine its potential role in EOC development.

A Pooled Analysis of 12 Cohort Studies of Dietary Fat, Cholesterol and Egg Intake and Ovarian Cancer
TLDR
Overall, fat, cholesterol and egg intakes were not associated with ovarian cancer risk, but a weakly positive, but non-linear association for saturated fat intake at very high intakes merits further investigation. Expand

TLDR
Ov ovarian cancer risk was positively associated with higher consumption of dietary cholesterol and eggs and inversely associated withHigher intake of total vegetables and cruciferous vegetables and supplementation of vitamin E, beta-carotene, and B-complex vitamins. Expand

Dietary fat intake and risk of epithelial ovarian cancer.
TLDR
If confirmed in further studies, this association may allow women to appreciably lower their risk of ovarian cancer through dietary modifications: reducing the intake of saturated fats and eating more vegetables. Expand
Prospective study of diet and ovarian cancer.
TLDR
The association of epithelial ovarian cancer with dietary factors in a prospective study of 29,083 postmenopausal women is investigated, generally in agreement with the results from previous, mostly case-control studies of diet and epithelial Ovarian cancer. Expand
Dietary factors and epithelial ovarian cancer.
TLDR
Dietary data from a population-based case-control study of epithelial ovarian cancer cases and controls were analysed and total vegetables were found to be somewhat protective, but the mechanism of action was unclear. Expand

Nutrient intake and ovarian cancer.
TLDR
High intake of beta-carotene appears to confer protection against ovarian cancer after adjusting for age, number of pregnancies, and the body mass index of weight/height. Expand

TLDR
Pregnancy, breast feeding, and oral contraceptive use induce biological changes that protect against ovarian malignancy, that, at most, a small fraction of the excess ovarian cancer risk among nulliparous women is due to infertility, and that any increased risk associated with infertility may be due to the use of fertility drugs.

Reproductive, genetic, and dietary risk factors for ovarian cancer.
TLDR
No association was observed for any types of contraceptive methods other than tubal ligation, but the prevalence of oral contraceptive use was very low, and a significant negative association between anovulatory periods and ovarian cancer risk was noted. Expand
