Relation of allium vegetables intake with head and neck cancers: evidence from the INHANCE consortium

Habitual consumption of allium vegetables may boost our chances of preventing cancer from occurring in the head and neck.

This meta-analysis synthesized data and evidence from 8 published studies that examined if the higher intake of allium vegetables can lower an individual's risk of having head and neck cancer (HNC). A total of 7,082 healthy individuals and 4,590 patients with head and neck volunteered dietary and health information utilized in this study.  

Researchers identified a downward trend in the incidence of head and neck cancer among generous consumers of allium vegetables, particularly onions and garlic. This study affirmed the notion that including more allium vegetables in our diet may put us in a better position to curtail the development of cancer in the head and neck region.
