People who consume the highest number of vegetable servings suffer 45% less risk of developing non-gallstone-related pancreatitis compared to those who eat the least. The protective effect of higher vegetable intake is more pronounced in those who drink more than 1 alcoholic drink per day and those whose BMI is over 25. Swedish researchers followed more than 80,000 participants for an average of 11.1 years to measure these possible effects.
