Relation of vegetable, fruit, and grain consumption to colorectal adenomatous polyps.

Eating more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains may make the formation of colorectal adenomatous polyps less likely.

​Colorectal polyps are abnormal tissue growth in the lining of the colon and rectum that have the potential to transform to cancerous cells and tumors. This study examined the role frequent eating of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains play in preventing the development of colorectal adenomatous polyps. Researchers used data obtained from 488 Southern Californian men and women aged 50-74 years. 

Researchers observed that habitual consumers of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains had slight chances of developing colorectal adenomatous polyps. Evidence from this study indicate subscribing to a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and grains may help to halt the development of adenomatous polyps in the colon and rectum.
