PurposeHigh intake of meat has been inconsistently associated with increased risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). We carried out a meta-analysis to summarize the evidence of published observational studies reporting association between red meat and processed meat intake and NHL risk.MethodsAnalytical studies reporting relative risks with 95 % confidence intervals (95 % CI) for the association between intake of red and/or processed meat and NHL or major histological subtypes were eligible.

Meat, fish, dairy products and risk of hematological malignancies in adults – a systematic review and meta-analysis of prospective studies
This systematic review and meta-analysis of cohort studies examine the association of meat, fish, and dairy product consumption with the risk of hematological neoplasms in adults to extract reliable conclusions concerning the role of these dietary factors in hematology malignancies.
The relationship between consumption of nitrite or nitrate and risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma
The hypothesis that nitrite intake, but not that of nitrate, raises the risk of developing NHL is supported, and better designed prospective research studies should be conducted to confirm the findings, clarify potential biological mechanisms and instruct clinicians about NHL prophylaxis.
Dietary fat intake and risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 2 large prospective cohorts.
Previous observations of an increased risk of NHL associated with intakes of total, animal, saturated, and trans fat with 14 y of follow-up did not persist with longer follow-ups, and there was little evidence for associations of dietary fat intake with NHL overall or by subtype.
On recent meta-analyses of exposure to glyphosate and risk of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in humans.
A meta-analysis of ever-exposure to glyphosate incorporating the most updated results from the case-control studies found results are consistent with those of two recent meta-analyses conducted using somewhat different study inclusion criteria.
Processed meat intake and chronic disease morbidity and mortality: An overview of systematic reviews and meta-analyses
Overall, the quality assessments of primary studies of the reviews are generally lacking; the scientific quality of the systematic reviews reporting positive associations between processed meat intake and risk of various cancers, T2D and CVD is moderate, and the results from case-control studies suggest more often a positive association than theresults from cohort studies.
Effects of Fatty Acids on Hematological Neoplasms: A Mini Review.
It is found that fatty acids could be useful to contrast side effects during chemotherapeutic drugs therapies; they are also able to block cancer cell metabolic pathways for proliferation and contrast adverse effects, even when they are used in combination with traditional therapies or innovative, like monoclonal antibodies or CAR-T therapy.
Non-coding RNAs (miRNAs and lncRNAs) and their roles in lymphogenesis in all types of lymphomas and lymphoid malignancies
The present review provides an up-to-date summary of the recent literature referring to all diagnosed ncRNAs that mediate the pathogenesis of all types of lymphomas and lymphoid malignancies.


Dietary Factors and Risk of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma in Men and Women
The positive associations of NHL risk with dairy products and fried red meat and the inverse association with fruits and vegetables suggest that diet affects NHL risk and could explain the increase of some histopathogic subtypes.
Red meat and processed meat consumption and all-cause mortality: a meta-analysis.
It is shown that high consumption of red meat, especially processed meat, may increase all-cause mortality, and a dose-response meta-analysis indicates that this is a possibility.
Fruits and vegetables consumption and risk of non‐Hodgkin's lymphoma: A meta‐analysis of observational studies
It is suggested that intakes of vegetables, and fruits and vegetables combined, but not fruits alone, significantly reduce risk of NHL.
Red and processed meat consumption and risk of ovarian cancer: a dose-response meta-analysis of prospective studies
Results from this dose-response meta-analysis suggest that red and processed meat consumption is not associated with risk of ovarian cancer, and although a lower consumption of red and processing meat may offer protection against other types of cancer, other interventions are needed to reduce the risk of Ovarian cancer.
Red and Processed Meat Intake Is Associated with Higher Gastric Cancer Risk: A Meta-Analysis of Epidemiological Observational Studies
It is indicated that consumption of red and/or processed meat contributes to increased gastric cancer risk, however, further investigation is needed to confirm the association, especially for red meat.
Meat intake is not associated with risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma in a large prospective cohort of U.S. men and women.
Meat intake was not associated with NHL or any histologic subtypes of NHL, and meat-cooking and -processing compounds did not increase NHL risk, contrary to findings in animal models and other cancer sites.
Meat intake and risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma
The results provide further evidence that red meat consumption is associated with an increase in NHL risk, and new evidence that the specific components of meat, namely fat and meat-related mutagens, may be impacting NHL subtype risk differently.
Red and Processed Meat and Colorectal Cancer Incidence: Meta-Analysis of Prospective Studies
High intake of red and processed meat is associated with significant increased risk of colorectal, colon and rectal cancers, and the overall evidence of prospective studies supports limiting red and processing meat consumption as one of the dietary recommendations for the prevention of colOREctal cancer.
Phytanic acid and the risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
The results provide support that total phytanic acid and phytic acid-containing foods may increase NHL risk and greater consumption of beef was associated with an increased risk of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, and greater Consumption of milk wasassociated with an increase risk of follicular lymphoma.
Consumption of meat and dairy and lymphoma risk in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition
No consistent associations between red and processed meat consumption and lymphoma risk were observed, but it was found that the consumption of poultry was related to an increased risk of B‐cell lymphomas.
