Dietary fiber and colorectal cancer risk: a nested case-control study using food diaries

Adhering to a high fiber diet may help shield an individual from colorectal cancer.

This study attempted to provide answer to the question: does eating foods rich in fiber reduce an individual's chances of developing colorectal cancer? Researchers asked 2,575 men and women from the United Kingdom to record the types of food they ate daily and report whether they have been diagnosed with colorectal cancer.

Researchers observed that the probability of developing colorectal cancer was low among followers of high fiber diets. This study concluded that "intake of dietary fiber is inversely associated with colorectal cancer risk."
