High whole grain diets may help to halt the onset of colorectal cancer in women.

This study investigated whether regular ingestion of whole grains can decrease the risk of colorectal cancer. Researchers examined data on the eating habits and prevalence of colorectal cancer in a study group comprising of 60,000 Swedish women. 

Researchers discovered that women who ate the most amounts of whole grains had lower chances of developing colorectal cancer than their counterparts who rarely consumed or completely avoided these foods. Evidence from this study strengthen the hypothesis that habitual consumption of whole grains is consistently associated with decreased odds of colorectal cancer in women.
