Meat Consumption and Risk of Colorectal Cancer (JAMA. 2005) "Context Consumption of red and processed meat has been associated with colorectal cancer in many but not all epidemiological studies; few studies have examined risk in relation to long-term meat intake or the association of meat with rectal cancer. Ä Conclusions Our results demonstrate the potential value of examining long-term meat consumption in assessing cancer risk and strengthen the evidence that prolonged high consumption of red and processed meat may increase the risk of cancer in the distal portion of the large intestine."

Potential role of flavonoids in the prevention of intestinal neoplasia: a review of their mode of action and their clinical perspectives. (Int J Gastrointest Cancer. 2005) "Intestinal neoplasia (adenomas and carcinomas) can possibly be prevented by a diet rich in vegetables and fruits, treatment with aspirin and other nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs, and early colonoscopic removal of adenomas. Ballast, fiber, and secondary plant products could play a major role in colon cancer prevention.Recently there has been much experimental work in vitro and in vivo about flavonoids as inducers of bioprevention. Flavonoids are secondary plant products with a wide variety of beneficial biological properties, and they possess anticarcinogenic, antimutagenic, and antioxidative modes of actions. Flavonoids are the main components of a healthy diet containing fruits and vegetables and are concentrated especially in tea, apples, and onions. Ä In models of intestinal polyposis, flavonoids suppress polyp formation. Some epidemiological studies show a protective effect of flavonoids contained in fruits, vegetables, and tea.Flavonoid mixtures of tea origin supplied as nutritional supplements could be studied as a new way of bioprevention of intestinal neoplasia (colon adenomas and cancer).
