Citrus Compounds Reduce Cancer Risk

Daily consumption of citrus could reduce the risk of a range of cancers, particularly pancreatic and prostate cancer.  Citrus consumption was associated with a 11 and 14 percent reduction in the incidence of all types of cancer for men and women, respectively, according to a new study.

Researchers analyzed data from more than 42,000 people over nine years. The results showed that daily consumption was correlated with significant reductions in the risk of all cancer, and prostate and pancreatic cancer risk were reduced by 37 and 38 percent, respectively.

NutraIngredients reports:

“Furthermore, [for] people who drank one cup of green tea a day the reduction in the risk of overall cancer was 17 percent, said the researchers.”
