A new study suggests that a diet free of red meat cut with & # 39; significantly the risk of & # 39; type & # 39; colon cancer in & # 39; women living in the UK.
University & # 39; Leeds researchers were part of an international team assessed whether red meat, poultry, fish or vegetarian diets are associated with the risk of & # 39; colon and rectal cancer.
When comparing the effects of & # 39; these diets do not & # 39; the development of cancer in & # 39; specific sottożati colon, found that those who regularly eat red meat compared to & # 39; red meat free diet had higher rates of & # 39; distal colon – cancer found in the section of descending colon, where the dirt is stored.
The main author Dr. Rada Diego Fernandez de Jauregui is part of the group & # 39; Nutritional Epidemiology (NEG) in & # 39; Leeds, and the University of the Basque Country in Spain. He said: "The impact of & # 39; different types & # 39; red meat and dietary patterns in & # 39; cancer sites is one of the biggest challenges in the study of diet and cancer -kolorektum.
"Our research is one of the few studies that are looking at this relationship and taking it further analysis in a larger study, you & # 39; provide valuable information for those who have a family history & # 39; cancer colon and working on prevention. "
More than 2.2 million new cases of & # 39; colorectal cancer, also known as bowel cancer, is expected worldwide by 2030. It is the third most diagnosed cancer in UK women. Previous studies have suggested that eating a lot of red and processed meat increases the risk of & # 39; colorectal cancer and it is estimated that about 1 in 5 of bowel cancer in the UK are connected to & # 39; eat these meats. However, there is limited information available on specific models & # 39; diet and site & # 39; occurrence of bowel cancer.
The study used data from the Women's Study UK on cohort. This cohort included a total of & # 39; 32 147 women from England, Wales and Scotland. They were recruited and surveyed by the World Research Cancer Fund between 1995 and 1998 and were followed for an average of & # 39; 17 years.
In addition to reporting of their dietary habits, have documented a total of & # 39; 462 cases of colorectal cancer and 335 colorectal cancer, 119 cases were & # 39; Distal colon cancer. Analysis & # 39; study, published today in the International Journal for Cancer, explored the relationship between the four & # 39; Dietary patterns and colorectal cancer and further exploratory analysis examined the correlation between diet and colon subsidies.
The co-author Janet Cade is head of the NEG and nutrition Professor of Epidemiology and Public Health in South Food Sciences and Nutrition in School & # 39; Leeds. She said: "Our study not only helps to shed & # 39; light on how meat consumption can & # 39; affect colorectal sections b & # 39; a different way, highlights the importance & # 39; reliable reporting on a diet of large groups of & # 39; people.
"B & # 39; access to the Women's Study cohort UK we can find trends in public health and assessing how diet can & # 39; influence cancer prevention. Reporting of accurate diet provides researchers with information they need to unite together. "
