Dietary patterns and the risk of colorectal cancer and adenomas.

Consistent consumption of diets high in fruits, vegetables, fish, poultry, whole grains, and low-fat foods may decrease colorectal cancer risk.

The aim of this research work was to determine the relationship between dietary patterns and the incidence of colorectal cancer. Researchers reviewed evidences and data obtained from 32 published literatures on the subject.

Researchers discovered that high intake of diets rich in fruits, vegetables, fish, poultry, dairy foods, whole grains, and low-fat foods decreased the odds of developing colorectal cancer. In contrast, western diets high in pork, potato, red meat, and processed meat products were linked to high colorectal cancer risk in this study. The findings of this review support the hypothesis that western dietary patterns may promote the development of cancerous cells in the colon and rectum.
