Dietary intake of fiber and decreased risk of cancers of the colon and rectum: evidence from the combined analysis of 13 case-control studies.

​A high-fiber diet may help to slash the risk of developing colorectal cancer.

This study assessed the association of dietary fiber intake with subsequent risk of developing colorectal cancer. Data from 5,287 colorectal cancer patients and 10,470 healthy subjects were evaluated, including self-reported dietary history.

Researchers found out that generous consumption of high-fiber foods reduced the probability of developing cancer of the colon and rectum. According to this study, regular intake of additional 13 grams of fiber per day can decrease the incidence of colorectal cancer by as much as 31% in the United States. Data from this study show that a protective association exists between high dietary ingestion of fiber-rich foods and colorectal cancer.
