Dietary risk factors for colorectal cancer in Brazil: a case-control study.

Individuals on diets rich in meat and devoid of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains are highly susceptible to colorectal cancer.

This study investigated the role of diets in the development and prevention of colorectal cancer. Using validated food frequency questionnaires, researchers collated and analyzed data on the dietary patterns of 270 subjects drawn from the Brazilian population. The colorectal cancer hazard ratio of each subject was also determined.

Researchers observed that subjects who regularly consumed diets rich in meats, such as beef, pork, and chicken and low in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains had greater risk of developing colorectal cancer than those on diets high in fruits, vegetables, and whole grain and low in meat. The findings of this study show that high colorectal cancer development risk is associated with increased consumption of different types of meat, such as pork, beef, and chicken.
