The study found:
(a) Those who ate the most bread had a 94% increased risk of kidney cancer compared to those who ate the least.
(b) Those who ate the most pasta and rice had a 29% increased risk of kidney cancer compared to those who ate the least.
(c) Those who ate the most poultry had a 26% decreased risk of kidney cancer compared to those who ate the least.
(d) Those who ate the most meat had a 26% decreased risk of kidney cancer compared to those who ate the least.
To conclude: Carbohydrate consumption (especially bread) increases the risk of kidney cancer, whilst consumption of various meats generally lowers the risk of kidney cacer.
