A common genetic variant that affects one in three people appears to significantly increase the risk of colorectal cancer from the consumption of processed meat, according to study published today in PLOS Genetics. The study of over 18,000 people from the U.S., Canada, Australia and Europe represents the first large-scale genome-wide analysis of genetic variants and dietary patterns that may help explain more of the risk factors for colorectal cancer. Dr Jane Figueiredo at the Keck School of...

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers at the American Society of Human Genetics 2013 meeting in Boston say they have discovered an interaction that could explain the link between eating meat and colorectal cancer risk. The team said the newly discovered potential gene-diet interaction for colorectal cancer could shed light on the statistically significantly increased risk of the cancer that is associated with the consumption of red and processed meats. "If...

People who reported dietary intake that was most consistent with the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans had lower risk of pancreatic cancer, according to a new study published August 15 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Previous studies investigating the relationship between food and nutrient intake and pancreatic cancer have yielded inconsistent results. The U.S. Government issues evidence-based dietary guidelines that provide the basis for federal nutrition policy and...

Proteomics reveals how ancient remedy slows prostate tumor cell proliferation An over-the-counter natural remedy derived from honeybee hives arrests the growth of prostate cancer cells and tumors in mice, according to a new paper from researchers at the University of Chicago Medicine. Caffeic acid phenethyl ester, or CAPE, is a compound isolated from honeybee hive propolis, the resin used by bees to patch up holes in hives. Propolis has been used for centuries as a natural remedy for...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) — Specific fruits and veggies reduce risks of Colorectal Cancer (CRC), some veggies help prevent proximal and distal, while others just help to prevent distal CRC. "Fruits and vegetables have been examined extensively in nutritional research in relation to CRC, however, their protective effect has been subject to debate, possibly because of different effects on different subsites of the large bowel," lead investigator Professor Lin Fritschi, PhD, head of the...

According to new study published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association The effects of fruit and vegetable consumption on colorectal cancer (CRC) appear to differ by site of origin, according to a new study published in the October issue of the Journal of the American Dietetic Association. Researchers found that within the proximal and distal colon, brassica vegetables (Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli) were associated with decreased risk of these cancers. A...

High dietary fiber intake was associated with a lower risk of colorectal cancer when researchers used data from food diaries but not when they used data obtained from food frequency questionnaires, according to a study published online April 20 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Previous studies have examined the issue of dietary fiber and risk of colorectal cancer, but the results have been inconsistent, particularly in studies that used food-frequency questionnaires (FFQs). In...

A new study found that vegetarians are less likely to develop cancer than people who eat meat, but it does not apply to all forms of the disease. The study of 60,000 Brits noted that those with a vegetarian diet had notably less cancer of the blood, bladder and stomach. However, the vegetarian diet did nothing to fight off bowel cancer. Researchers from universities in Britain and New Zealand studied 61,566 men and women. This included meat-eaters, people who ate just fish, and those who ate...
