CLA inhibits breast and colon cancers

Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), found naturally in meat and dairy products, offers several health benefits, including improving fat metabolism and insulin sensitivity and protection against heart disease and cancer. At the National Institute of Environmental Medicine in Stockholm, Sweden, researchers found that high full-fat dairy food and CLA intake reduces the risk colorectal cancer. Using [...]

Women and Cancer: Calcium may offer protection

A University of Minnesota Cancer Center study found that women consuming more than 800 mg of calcium each day reduced their risk of colorectal cancer by as much as 26 to 46%. A 26% reduction in risk of colorectal cancer occurred regardless of whether the calcium intake was from diet or supplement. Among women who [...]

Reduce Colon Cancer Risk: Adequate vitamin B6 plus alcohol plays a role

According to a new study, women with a high dietary intake of vitamin B6 over several years have a decreased risk of colorectal cancer (CRC). Women who consume moderate to large amounts of alcohol in addition to vitamin B6 have more than a 70% reduced risk of developing CRC. "Consuming a diet high in vitamin [...]

Selenium cuts two common cancers

A new study says that higher intake of selenium may reduce colorectal cancer risk. In the past, selenium has been associated with cancer protection, particularly prostate, lung and colon cancers. To gain better insight into selenium’s anti-cancer role, researchers from the University of Arizona analyzed data from three completed clinical trials, each with several hundred [...]

Calcium: Study suggests lower risk of colon cancer

Taking calcium supplements is associated with a decreased risk of advanced colon polyps, according to a new study. Although high calcium intake has been shown to inhibit colon cancer in animal experiments, these effects have not been seen consistently in human studies. To explore in greater detail the chemopreventive effects of calcium supplementation, Kristin Wallace, [...]

Anticancer Team: Calcium and D work together to reduce cancer risk

The nutrients calcium and vitamin D work in tandem, not separately, to reduce the risk of colorectal cancer, according to a new reported in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. The research builds on an earlier finding that people who take calcium supplements have a lower risk of adenoma polyps - benign tumours that [...]

Anticancer Spice: Ginger may slow rate of tumours, study shows

An active compound in the herb ginger appears to inhibit the growth of human colorectal cancer cells, according to US researchers. In a small trial involving 40 mice who were injected with human colorectal cancer cells, the ones given supplements of a compound from ginger (6-gingerol) showed slower rates of cancer growth. By day 15 [...]
