The Effect of Phospholipids and Lipotropic Factors on Xenobiotic Toxicity
Although fat is an essential component of the diet, epidemiological and experimental studies indicate that a high intake of fat increases the risk of developing colon cancer (2,34,25). To explain this correlation it has been suggested that dietary fat damages the intestinal mucosa leading to an increased proliferation of the colonic cells (11,33). Hyperproliferation has been associated with an increased risk of developing colon cancer both in experimental animals and humans (20).
