  1. Vegetable and fruit consumption in relation to prostate cancer risk in Hawaii : a reevaluation of the effect of dietary beta-carotene.

    Article - En anglais

    Because a previous analysis had shown a positive association with intake of bêta-carotene, a nutrient presently being tested for chemoprevention, the authors reexamined the data for consistency among the main food sources of bêta-carotene.

    Vegetables and fruits containing other phytochemicals suspected to be cancer inhibitors were also examined.

    With the exception of papaya, which was positively associated with risk among men aged 70 years and older, consumption of other yellow-orange fruits and vegetables, tomatoes, dark green vegetables, and cruciferous vegetables was not associated with prostate cancer risk.
