Magnesium intake is associated with a reduced risk of incident liver cancer, based on an analysis of the NIH-American Association of Retired Persons (NIH-AARP) Diet and Health Study prospective cohort.
Liver cancer incidence and mortality are escalating globally. Magnesium intake has been studied extensively in nonmalignant liver pathology, but the association between dietary intake of magnesium and primary liver malignancy has not been previously evaluated. In this study, investigators aimed to determine the association between total magnesium intake and primary liver cancer risk. The investigators concluded that based on their prospective cohort analysis, magnesium intake was associated with a lower risk of primary liver cancer, which was more pronounced among moderate and heavy alcohol users.
