Vegetarian Diet Lowers Risk for Some Cancers, Study Finds
To prevent certain types of cancer, a vegetarian diet with some fish might be the best protection, according to a new study. Fish-eating vegetarians, or pescovegetarians, had a 43% lower risk of colorectal cancers than nonvegetarians.
This beat out the results for vegans, who had a 16% lower risk, and lacto-ovo vegetarians, who eat milk and eggs and who had an 18% lower chance. Combined, all types of vegetarians had a 22% reduced risk for colorectal cancers than nonvegetarians.
According to the researchers, the additional benefit from fish probably comes from omega-3 fatty acids. However, they note that even the nonvegetarian group in the study consumed less meat than the average American.
Colorectal cancer is the second most deadly cancer in the U.S., after lung cancer, and previous studies have suggested that meat-heavy diets, especially processed meat, can elevate risk for the condition. This latest research is led by Michael Orlich, an assistant professor of preventive medicine at Loma Linda University, a Seventh-day Adventist institution in California.
According to the researchers, vegetarians might be protected from colorectal cancer not only because they eat less meat, but because they eat more plants. “Diets high in fiber are linked with decreased risk, and fiber comes from whole plant foods, so this could be a major reason why the risk is much lower,” said Dr. Orlich.
The vegetarian groups also ate fewer fatty foods and snacks in general than the nonvegetarians. This helps reduce excess levels of insulin in the blood, which has been linked to elevated risk for colorectal cancers.
