Adding more fruits, onions, garlic, deep-yellow, and dark-green vegetables to our diets may help fend off colorectal adenoma.

​Colorectal adenoma is the precursor of colorectal cancer. This study examined whether high intake of fruits and vegetables is tied to lower risk of colorectal adenoma. Researchers compared the diets of 3,057 patients with colorectal adenoma and 29,413 healthy subjects. 

Researchers noticed that consistent consumption of fruits, onions, garlic, deep-yellow and dark-green vegetables brightened participants' chances of avoiding colorectal adenoma. The data from this study suggest that high dietary ingestion of fruits and vegetable may offer individuals significant protection against colorectal adenoma.
