Abstract

Both epidemiological and experimental evidence indicate that dietary factors in general and dietary fiber and fat in particular are important in the etiology of colon cancer. Adequate dietary fiber consumption has been correlated with reduced risk of several cancers of the gastrointestinal tract, particularly colon cancer. Total dietary fat and saturated fat have been implicated as enhancing factors in colon cancer development.
