Does adequate dietary fiber lower overall rates of colorectal cancer?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
The effect of total dietary fiber intake on the risk of colorectal cancer is unclear. Although meta-analysis of case-control studies indicates an inverse relationship, prospective trials have found no association. The type of food consumed (such as whole grains) may be more important than amount of total fiber.
