Carrots may have a therapeutic and positive effect in reducing risk, progression, and treatment of gastric/stomach cancer, some scientists suggested.
At the later stage, the cancerous cells may infect other healthy tissue and organ a distance away from the original site.
The exact causes of gastric cancer are unknown. Researchers do not know why people with the same health conditions and eating habits in the same family, some are susceptible to the onset of the disease while others do not.
However, scientists do know that certain risk factors such as Helicobacter pylori infection, smoking family history, mutated gene inherited from the parents, some stomach conditions and previous stomach surgery are associated to the early onset of gastric cancer.
Moreover, people who have exposed to ionizing radiation, are smokers with type A blood and eating lots of processed meats are also at a higher risk of gastric cancer.
The American Cancer Association in the article of Can Gastric Cancer Be Prevented? wrote. "A diet high in fresh fruits and vegetables can also lower stomach cancer risk. Citrus fruits (such as oranges, lemons, and grapefruit) may be especially helpful" and ".. eating at least 2½ cups of vegetables and fruits every day. Choosing whole-grain bread, pasta, and cereals instead of refined grains, and eating fish, poultry, or beans instead of processed meat and red meat may also help lower your risk of cancer".
These suggestions strongly agreed that by following a healthy diet and lifestyle with moderate physical activity, the risk of gastric cancers can be reduced substantially and effectively.
literature from PubMed, Cochrane Library, Scopus, ScienceDirect, and Persian databases like Scientific Information Database (SID) and IranMedx, researchers found that out of 81 articles collected with 5 selected to the study, carrot consumption exerts a reduced gastric cancer risk by 26% with an odds ratio of .74 compared to nonconsumers.
With H. pylori-induced chronic inflammation in facilitating risk of gastric cancer, researchers at the Yonsei University found that injection lycopene exerts a significant effect in inhibiting the increase of ROS, apoptosis, alterations in cell-cycle distribution in human gastric carcinoma AGS cells.
The results of above differentiation were supported by the study from the period 1997-1999 with 120 incident and histologically verified cases of stomach cancer, matched on age, sex, residence, and urban/rural status and 360 controls conducted by the Jiangsu Cancer Hospital and Research Institute.
