To comprehensively summarize the association between dietary intake of vitamins A, C, and E and the risk of colorectal adenoma (CRA), the precursor of colorectal cancer, relevant studies were identified in MEDLINE and EMBASE up to 31 October 2012. Summary relative risks (SRRs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were pooled with a random-effects model. Between-study heterogeneity was assessed using Cochran’s Q and I2 statistics. A total of 13 studies with 3832 CRA cases were included in this… 
Association of Dietary Vitamin A and β-Carotene Intake with the Risk of Lung Cancer: A Meta-Analysis of 19 Publications
TLDR
Higher category of dietary β-carotene and vitamin A intakes could reduce the risk of lung cancer, especially among Asian populations and in the cohort studies.
Association between Dietary Vitamin C Intake and Risk of Prostate Cancer: A Meta-analysis Involving 103,658 Subjects
TLDR
In conclusion, intake of vitamin C from food was inversely associated with prostate cancer risk in this meta-analysis.
Association between dietary vitamin C intake and risk of esophageal cancer: A dose–response meta‐analysis
TLDR
It is suggested that the higher intake of dietary vitamin C might have a protective effect against esophageal cancer.
Association between vitamin C intake and lung cancer: a dose-response meta-analysis
TLDR
It is suggested that the higher intake of vitamin C might have a protective effect against lung cancer, especially in the United States, although this conclusion needs to be confirmed.
Association between vitamin C intake and lung cancer: a dose-response
TLDR
It is suggested that the higher intake of vitamin C might have a protective effect against lung cancer, especially in the United States, although this conclusion needs to be confirmed.
Association of vitamin C intake with breast cancer risk and mortality: a meta-analysis of observational studies
TLDR
It is suggested that higher vitamin C intake is significantly associated with reduced breast cancer incidence and mortality, however, the intake of vitamin C supplements has no significant effect on breast cancer prevention.
Carotenoid intake from natural sources and colorectal cancer: a systematic review and meta-analysis of epidemiological studies
TLDR
Overall, the findings do not support a significant association between intake of specific carotenoids from dietary sources, as well as combined carOTenoids, and the risk of CRC overall and by anatomic subsite.
Dietary intakes of citrus fruit and risk of gastric cancer incidence: an adaptive meta-analysis of cohort studies
TLDR
It is suggested that the intake of citrus fruit inhibits the development of cardia gastric cancer and can be used as a primary prevention measure in the future when the incidence of CGC may be on the rise.
Composite dietary antioxidant index and the risk of colorectal cancer: Findings from the Singapore Chinese Health Study
TLDR
Inverse association between CDAI and CRC risk was more apparent in women or those without a history of diabetes, without family history of CRC, never smokers or overweight/obese individuals, suggesting that food‐based antioxidants may be beneficial for reducing the risk of CRC in the general population.

TLDR
Individuals who have a healthier diet, high in calcium, vitamin C, riboflavin, folate and fiber and food groups like fruits, vegetables and whole-grain and less in sweets and red or process meats are at a lower risk of colorectal cancer and CRA than those with unhealthy and poor diet.

Colorectal adenomas and diet: a case-control study. Colorectal Adenoma Study Group.
TLDR
The data support the protective role for carbohydrate intake and of beta-carotene intake in the etiology of colorectal adenoma and show a strong increased risk for developing adenomas in those with high meat intake.
Tobacco use and associations of beta-carotene and vitamin intakes with colorectal adenoma risk.
TLDR
A protective effect of folate and vitamins C and B-6 irrespective of smoking habits, and an adverse effect of beta-carotene in smokers are suggested, who should be cautious about taking high doses of this micronutrient.
Current diet and colorectal adenomas: a case–control study including different sets of traditionally chosen control groups
TLDR
High intake of fat and a low intake of foods rich in antioxidants and fibre are suggested to be associated with risk of colorectal adenomas and the role of these dietary factors in the formation of precancerous lesions in the large intestine is given further strength.

TLDR
Analysis of intakes of the main dietary carotenoids and of vitamins A, C, and E provided only modest support for a protective association of beta-carotene with colorectal adenomatous polyps.
Dietary intake of fiber and decreased risk of cancers of the colon and rectum: evidence from the combined analysis of 13 case-control studies.
TLDR
This analysis provides substantive evidence that intake of fiber-rich foods is inversely related to risk of cancers of both the colon and rectum and estimates that risk of colorectal cancer in the U.S. population could be reduced about 31% by an average increase in fiber intake from food sources of about 13 g/d.
Fruit and vegetable intakes are associated with lower risk of colorectal adenomas.
TLDR
There is additional evidence that high total fruit intake and certain fruit and vegetable intakes may be associated with a reduced risk of colorectal adenomas, and increased intakes of total fruits, berries, fruit juice, and green leafy vegetables were associated with reduced adenoma risk.
Micronutrients and the risk of colorectal adenomas.
TLDR
Findings that selected micronutrients protect against colorectal neoplasia are supported, suggesting that folate, iron, and vitamin C appear to be most protective.

TLDR
The lack of efficacy of these vitamins argues against the use of supplemental beta carotene and vitamins C and E to prevent colorectal cancer.
Nutritional status and the risk for colorectal adenomas: a case-control study in Hospital Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
TLDR
The results support the notion that certain nutritional factors are of importance for the development of these pre-cancerous lesions and Identification of risk factors through this case-control study should be able to supplement the available data in order to develop an intervention package that focuses on multiple risk factors to reduce the chances for developing colorectal adenomas or colorective cancer.

Specific dietary and lifestyle habits were identified as independent factors associated with colorectal adenomas; of special interest is the interaction between water and fiber intake.
