Research Gives Added Emphasis to Fiber's Role in Colon Health

Research Gives Added Emphasis to Fiber's Role in Colon Health Researchers now have more reasons for you to consume fiber and not misuse antibiotics. They've demonstrated that a receptor that physicians activate with mega-doses of niacin administered to protect patients' cardiovascular systems also plays an integral role in preventing colon inflammation a...

Colorectal Cancer Risk Linked to Red and Processed Meat Consumption

Colorectal Cancer Risk Linked to Red and Processed Meat Consumption Individuals with a common genetic variant who eat red or processed meats may elevate their colorectal cancer risk. This is according to research presented at the American Society of Human Genetics meeting. Additionally, the study investigators claim they have discovered another specific geneti... Read More

Colorectal Cancer Risk May Be Increased by Gut Microbes

Colorectal Cancer Risk May Be Increased by Gut Microbes A team of NYU Langone Medical Center researchers have discovered a clear link between gut bacteria and colorectal cancer. The study, one of the largest epidemiological studies on the topic, was published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. The study authors claim that their findin... Read More

Stem Cell Gene Reveals New Colorectal Cancer Target

Stem Cell Gene Reveals New Colorectal Cancer Target Canadian researchers have discovered that turning off a gene in the cancer stem cells that drive colon cancer prevents them from being able to renew themselves. They claim that their study provides a starting point for treatments that could stop the cancer entirely. This discovery is published... Read More

New Method Aids in Early Colon Cancer Detection

New Method Aids in Early Colon Cancer Detection Investigators have discovered new approaches to identify certain gene variations that have been found to be linked to colon cancer, and they claim their new discovery may soon allow physicians to spot the disease in the very early stages, potentially saving patients' lives.

Anti-Cancer Effects Found In Women Taking Every-Other-Day Aspirin

Anti-Cancer Effects Found In Women Taking Every-Other-Day Aspirin Healthy women ingesting an aspirin every other day may be warding off colon cancer. This is according to a new long-term study conducted by Brigham and Women's Hospital researchers and published in the Annals of Internal Medicine. Read More

Colon Cancer Metastasis May Be Reduced by Ingestion of Soy Peptide

Colon Cancer Metastasis May Be Reduced by Ingestion of Soy Peptide A novel University of Illinois study has recently demonstrated that an injection of the soy peptide lunasin greatly lowered colon cancer metastasis in mice. Researchers are now eager to see how incorporating the compound into the animals' daily diet would impact the spread of the disease. Read More

New Study Uncovers New Colon Cancer Risk Factors

New Study Uncovers New Colon Cancer Risk Factors Consuming a diet high in foods containing excess sugar and fat has been positively linked to colon cancer. The study is the first of its kind and the researchers involved examined risk factors such as diet, physical activity levels, and smoking. Read More

Gene Expression Analysis of Colorectal Cancer Clarifies Staging

Gene Expression Analysis of Colorectal Cancer Clarifies Staging A new classification of colon cancer based on gene expression helps improve the current disease staging system. This is according to a study published in PLOS Medicine and involved the use of genetic information to identify a standard reproducible molecular classification of colon cancer. The ... Read More

Genes Determine Aspirins Preventive Effect on Colon Cancer

Genes Determine Aspirins Preventive Effect on Colon Cancer Consuming a daily dose of aspirin can aid in reducing an individual's risk of colon cancer. However, a new study has discovered that the lowered risk of colorectal cancer is impacted by the mutation of a gene known as BRAF. Read More
