Consuming milk and fruits reduces the likelihood of developing liver cancer.

Researchers from the National Tumor Institute in Aviano found that diet has a significant role in the risk of liver cancer. As for other types of cancer, fruits and vegetables seem to confer a protective effect. The researchers studied 185 patients with liver cancer and a comparison group of 412 controls without cancer.

The participants' responses to dietary questionnaires showed that as intake of various foods went up, the risk of liver cancer went down. After accounting for other factors that could affect the risk, the team found that higher intake of milk and yoghurt reduced the chances of developing liver cancer by 78 percent. High consumption of white meat lowered the risk by 56 percent, and with high intake of fruit, it went down by 52 percent. Vegetables, too, apparently had a protective effect, but this was not statistically significant. The findings held good for patients with hepatitis B and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection.

The findings suggest that to ward off liver cancer, one should adopt a correct diet, rich in fruits and vegetables. It is also important to limit the consumption of alcohol beverages and avoiding HBV/HCV infection by practicing safe sex and eliminating needle sharing.
