Dietary Patterns May Be Linked to Increased Colorectal Cancer Risk in Women

ScienceDaily (Oct. 24, 2011) — Researchers may have found a specific dietary pattern linked to levels of C-peptide concentrations that increase a woman’s risk for colorectal cancer.
“High red meat intake, fish intake, sugar-sweetened beverage intake, but low coffee, whole grains and high-fat dairy intake, when taken as a whole, seemed to be associated with higher levels of C-peptide in the blood,” said Teresa T. Fung, S.D., R.D., professor of nutrition at Simmons College in Boston, who presented the data at the 10th AACR International Conference on Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research, held Oct. 22-25, 2011.
