Dietary patterns as identified by factor analysis and colorectal cancer among middle-aged Americans.

High meat eaters may have higher colorectal cancer risk than regular consumers of fruits, vegetables, and low-fat diets.

​The objective of this study was to determine the relationship between dietary patterns and the occurrence of colorectal cancer among middle-aged US men and women. Researchers following the diets of over 400,000 thousand people recruited from the National Institutes of Health-AARP Diet and Health Study found out that high consumers of fruits, vegetables, and low-fat diets had slim chances of developing colorectal cancer. On the other hand, a surge in colorectal cancer risk was associated with consistent consumption of high meat diets. The findings of this study reveal that frequent consumers of fruits, vegetables, and low-fat diets are less prone to develop colorectal cancer.
