Abstract:

We examined the association between fruit/vegetable consumption and the risk of hematological malignancies in cohort studies (end of search: August 31, 2016). Total fruit consumption was not associated with the risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) (RR = 1.03, 95% CI: 0.92-1.16, I = 12.1%, n = 7), acute myeloid leukemia (RR = 1.23, 95% CI: 0.94-1.61, I = 0%, n = 3), multiple myeloma (MM; RR = 1.05, 95% CI: 0.72-1.55, I = 60.0%, n = 4), and Hodgkin lymphoma. However, citrus fruit consumption was associated with reduced NHL risk (RR = 0.85, 95% CI: 0.73-1.00, p = .044, I = 0%, n = 6). Vegetable intake was marginally associated with reduced NHL risk (RR = 0.89, 95% CI: 0.79-1.00, p = .056, I = 16.2%, n = 7), but not with acute myeloid leukemia, multiple myeloma, and Hodgkin lymphoma risk. Nevertheless, NHL risk was inversely associated with cruciferous vegetable consumption (RR = 0.84, 95% CI: 0.71-1.00, p = .047, I = 0%, n = 3). Notably, combined fruit/vegetable consumption was associated with decreased NHL risk (RR = 0.79, 95% CI: 0.65-0.96, I = 11.2%, n = 3). This meta-analysis reveals possible protective effects; however, confounding and reporting bias could have affected the results.
