Background: Fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants have been proposed to reduce the risk of renal cell cancer. However, few prospective studies have examined the intakes of fruits, vegetables, and antioxidant vitamins in relation to the risk of renal cell cancer. Methods: We prospectively examined the associations between the intakes of fruits, vegetables, vitamins A, C, and E, and carotenoids and risk of renal cell cancer in women and men. We followed 88,759 women in the Nurses' Health…

Intakes of Fruit, Vegetables, and Carotenoids and Renal Cell Cancer Risk: A Pooled Analysis of 13 Prospective Studies

It is found that increasing fruit and vegetable consumption is associated with decreasing risk of renal cell cancer; carotenoids present in fruit and vegetables may partly contribute to this protection.

No association between fruit, vegetables, antioxidant nutrients and risk of renal cell carcinoma

The results indicate that diet may not play a large role in the etiology of RCC in male smokers, although further examination of these associations in nonsmokers, women and diverse racial populations is warranted.

Dietary vitamin C, E, and carotenoid intake and risk of renal cell carcinoma

Evidence is provided that a diet rich in β-carotene and lutein/zeaxanthin may play a role in RCC prevention and that ever smokers were more likely to be associated with RCC.

Fruit, vegetables, fibre and micronutrients and risk of US renal cell carcinoma.

Results showed that among non-smokers, low intake of cruciferous vegetables and fruit fibre was also associated with increased risk of RCC, and similar inverse associations were found for β-cryptoxanthin, lycopene and vitamin C.

Intake of fiber and fiber-rich plant foods is associated with a lower risk of renal cell carcinoma in a large US cohort.

Intake of fiber and fiber-rich plant foods was associated with a significantly lower risk of RCC in this large US cohort of men and women.

Fat, protein, and meat consumption and renal cell cancer risk: a pooled analysis of 13 prospective studies.

Intakes of fat and protein or their subtypes, red meat, processed meat, poultry, and seafood are not associated with risk of renal cell cancer, and associations were attenuated and no longer statistically significant after adjusting for body mass index, fruit and vegetable intake, and alcohol intake.

Cruciferous vegetable intake and the risk of human cancer: epidemiological evidence

The current epidemiological evidence suggests that cruciferous vegetable consumption may reduce the risk only of gastric and lung cancers, and there is at present no conclusive evidence that the consumption of crucifierous vegetables attenuates the risk of all other cancers.

A meta-analysis of cohort studies to examine the relations between antioxidant vitamins and CHD risk suggests that an increase in dietary intake of antioxidant vitamins has encouraging prospects for possible CHD prevention.

Fruit and vegetables and cancer risk: a review of southern European studies q

Data from a network of Italian and Swiss case–control studies suggested a favourable role of high intakes of fruit and vegetables in the risk of many common cancers, particularly of the digestive tract, adding evidence to the indication that aspects of the Mediterranean diet may have a favourable impact not only on CVD, but also on several common epithelial cancers.

Consumption of fruits and vegetables and risk of renal cell carcinoma: a meta-analysis of observational studies

This meta-analysis indicated a protective effect of consumption of vegetables and fruits on RCC risk, and further studies are warranted with prospective designs that use validated questionnaires and control for important confounders.



Fruits, vegetables and risk of renal cell carcinoma: A prospective study of Swedish women

It is suggested that high consumption of fruits and vegetables might be associated with reduced risk of RCC.

Fruits and vegetables and renal cell carcinoma: Findings from the European prospective investigation into cancer and nutrition (EPIC)

The results suggest that total consumption of fruits and vegetables is not related to risk of RCC, although it cannot exclude the possibility that very low consumption is related to higher risk, and the relationship of specific fruit and vegetable subgroups with RCC risk warrant further investigation.

Total Fluid Intake and Use of Individual Beverages and Risk of Renal Cell Cancer in Two Large Cohorts

The data suggest an inverse association between alcohol intake and risk of renal cell cancer, but do not support the hypothesis that greater total fluid intake reduces the risk of kidney cell cancer.

Vegetable and fruit consumption and risk of renal cell carcinoma: Results from the Netherlands cohort study

The results suggest the absence of an association between vegetable and/or fruit consumption and RCC risk, including for botanical subgroups of vegetables and fruit.

Fruit and vegetable intake in relation to risk of ischemic stroke.

These data support a protective relationship between consumption of fruit and vegetables-particularly cruciferous and green leafy vegetables and citrus fruit and juice-and ischemic stroke risk.

Cruciferous vegetables in relation to renal cell carcinoma

A significant residual effect of cruciferous vegetables is observed, suggesting that other substances present in these vegetables may be responsible, at least partially, for the observed reduction in risk of RCC.

Diet and vitamin or mineral supplements and risk of renal cell carcinoma in Canada

The findings add to the evidence that diet may play an important role in the etiology of R CC; the risk of RCC may be reduced by changes in nutritional habits.

The effect of foods consumed both during the usual adult lifetime and 20 years prior to interview is explored, adding to the evidence that diet may have an important role in the etiology of renal cell cancer.

Vegetable and fruit consumption and cancer risk

Consistency and strength of the patterns observed indicate that, in this population, frequent green vegetable intake is associated with a substantial reduction of risk for several common epithelial cancers, and that fruit intake has a favourable effect, especially on upper digestive cancers and, probably, also on urinary tract neoplasms.

Evaluation of dietary, medical and lifestyle risk factors for incident kidney cancer in postmenopausal women

In these postmenopausal women, overweight, particularly central adiposity, was an important risk factor for kidney cancer.
