Default High-Fiber May Reduce Endometrial Cancer Risk

12/18/2007 - For every five grams of dietary fibre per 1000 calories, women may reduce their risk of endometrial cancer by over 20 per cent, suggests a new meta-analysis.

Bringing together the results of one case-cohort study and nine case-control studies, researchers led by Elisa Bandera from The Cancer Institute of New Jersey, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, report a strong protective effect from higher fibre consumption.

Endometrial cancer is the fifth most common cancer among women worldwide - around 7,000 American women die from the disease annually - but incidence of the cancer varies more than 10-fold worldwide.

Previously, studies have reported that excessive and prolonged exposure of the endometrium (lining of the uterus) to oestrogens without progesterone can increase the risk of cancer.

Moreover, it has been reported that dietary fibre may regulate oestrogen levels in the body.
