Dietary patterns and risk of colorectal cancer: a systematic review of cohort studies (2000-2011).

Western diets high in pork, red meat, processed meats, and refined grains may increase colorectal cancer risk.

This research work examined the role diets play in the development of colorectal cancer. Researchers analyzed data extracted from 6 cohort studies. They found a low incidence of colorectal cancer among subjects who consistently consumed healthy diets rich in fruits, vegetables, fish, poultry, and whole grains. On the other hand, a greater colorectal cancer risk was observed among frequent consumers of western diets characterized by high intake of pork, red meat, processed meats, and refined grains. The findings of this meta-analysis reveal that high consumption of healthy foods, such as fruits, vegetables, fish, poultry, and whole grains, may contribute positively to the prevention of colorectal cancer.
