Abstract

A number of studies document strong epidemiological and clinical links between diet and colon cancer incidence. In particular, a corn oil-supplemented diet (rich in n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids) has been shown to be less protective against colon tumorigenesis (Haenszel and Kurihara, 1968; Blot et al., 1975; Bang et al, 1976; Boyle et al. 1985; Chang et al, 1997; Hong et al. 2000) than a fish oil-supplemented diet (rich in n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids). The mechanisms contributing to this apparent diet effect are still largely unknown, however, and they are currently being investigated (see, for example, Hong et al., 2000).
