BACKGROUND Nasopharyngeal carcinoma is a rare disease in most parts of the world with a multifactorial etiology involving an interaction of genetic, viral, environmental and dietary risk factors. This is the first epidemiologic study aimed to evaluate the risk factors of nasopharyngeal carcinoma in the Turkish population. METHODS We conducted a multicentric, retrospective, case-control study using a standardized questionnaire which captured age, sex, occupation, household type, blood group… 
Oral Hygiene and Risk of Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma—A Population-Based Case–Control Study in China
TLDR
A positive association between some indicators of poor oral health and risk of nasopharyngeal carcinoma is suggested, and improvement of oral hygiene might contribute to reducing NPC risk.
Epidemiology of Nasopharyngeal Cancers in Iran: A 6-year Report.
TLDR
The trend of incidence of nasopharyngeal cancers in Iran has increased, especially in males, and further studies are recommended for understanding of the etiological factors involved in the rise of the disease.
ABO blood group and nasopharyngeal carcinoma risk in a population of Southeast China
TLDR
The results suggest that blood types A or AB is associated with an increased risk of NPC, and further studies are needed to confirm this association and to explore the mechanisms involved.
Epidemiology and Population Screening
TLDR
It is found that smoking is likely a causal factor, family history of NPC a strong risk factor, while vitamin D and milk consumption, and better socioeconomic status, could be protective, and the interaction between genetic factors, Epstein–Barr virus (EBV) infection, and environmental and lifestyle risk factors warrants further investigation.
Consumption of fruit, vegetables, and other food groups and the risk of nasopharyngeal carcinoma
TLDR
Findings show that, also in lowrisk populations, vegetable consumption is a protective factor against NPC, in agreement with the inverse association reported for carotenoids intake.
Consumption of fruit, vegetables, and other food groups and the risk of nasopharyngeal carcinoma
TLDR
The study findings show that, also in low-risk populations, vegetable consumption is a protective factor against NPC, in agreement with the inverse association reported for carotenoids intake.
Smoking and nasopharyngeal cancer: individual data meta-analysis of six prospective studies on 334 935 men
TLDR
This first IPD meta-analysis from six prospective cohorts in endemic regions has provided robust observational evidence that smoking increased NPC risk in men and should be added to the 12–16 cancer sites known to be tobacco-related cancers.
Incidence Trends and Geographical Distribution of Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma in Iran
TLDR
An increasing trend in the incidence of nasopharyngeal carcinoma in the Iranian population during 2004 to 2009 is indicated, which indicates attempts should be precipitated for prevention.
Declining Incidence of Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma in Brunei Darussalam: a Three Decade Study (1986-2014).
TLDR
The incidence of NPC in Brunei Darussalam is comparable to rates reported from Singapore and Malaysia, but higher than rates reported by the other Southeast Asian nations.
Nasopharyngeal Cancer : Geographic Variation and Risk Factors
Introduction: Nasopharyngeal cancer is known to be a rare malignancy that effects the head and neck region involving the nasopharynx. It has a 0.8% occurrence rate among all types of cancer and has

A case-control study of nasopharyngeal carcinoma in the high background radiation areas of Yangjiang, China.
TLDR
Univariate conditional logistic regression analysis showed that NPC risk was associated with the consumption of salted fish, homemade pickles, and fermented soy beans, education levels, the history of chronic rhinitis, and the family history of NPC.
Dietary risk factors for nasopharyngeal carcinoma in Maghrebian countries
North Africa is one of the major Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma (NPC) endemic regions. Specific food items unique to this area were implicated to be associated with NPC risk, but results were inconsistent.
Cigarette smoking, alcohol consumption and risk of nasopharyngeal carcinoma in Taiwan
TLDR
The results suggest that long term cigarette smoking is associated with NPC but that low level exposure to cigarette smoke via passive exposure and alcohol consumption are not associated with disease risk.
Non‐dietary risk factors for nasopharyngeal carcinoma in Shanghai, China
TLDR
There was a strong and statistically significant positive association between NPC risk and exposure to substantial secondhand smoke as a child or as an adult in women, however, the associations among lifelong non‐smoking men were weaker and not statistically significant.
Occupational and other non‐dietary risk factors for nasopharyngeal carcinoma in Guangzhou, China
TLDR
Use of tobacco products showed a moderate association with NPC; a lifetime exposure of 30+ pack‐year equivalents conferred a 2‐fold increased risk.
The Enigmatic Epidemiology of Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma
TLDR
There is a clear need for large-scale, population-based molecular epidemiologic studies to elucidate how environmental, viral, and genetic factors interact in both the development and the prevention of this disease.
Alcohol and tea consumption in relation to the risk of nasopharyngeal carcinoma in Guangdong, China
TLDR
The risk of NPC was found to be associated with habitual alcohol consumption and tea consumption, and overuse, especially strong distillate spirits, appeared to be a risk factor.

TLDR
It is indicated that over two-thirds of differentiated squamous cell NPC cases arising in older persons in the United States can be accounted for by cigarettes and alcohol, but leaves unexplained cases arisen in the young and carcinomas of undifferentiated or nonkeratinizing histology.
Adulthood consumption of preserved and nonpreserved vegetables and the risk of nasopharyngeal carcinoma: A systematic review
TLDR
Analysis of the epidemiologic evidence on the associations between adulthood intake of preserved and nonpreserved vegetables and NPC risk showed that highest‐versus‐lowest preserved vegetable intake was associated with a 2‐fold increase in the risk of NPC.
Preserved foods in relation to risk of nasopharyngeal carcinoma in Shanghai, China
TLDR
Exposures to salted fish and other protein‐containing preserved food were associated with increased risk of nasopharyngeal carcinoma and the joint effect of preserved food and oranges/tangerines on risk of NPC.
