Organochlorine compounds present in diet increase risk of colon cancerTopics: Health Issues
Here's an article on a study that focuses on a relationship between organochlorine compounds and Colorectal cancer , the third most frequent type of cancer in humans and the second deadliest in industrialised countries. Although the exact causes and mechanisms are not understood, diet is believed to play an important part in it's carcinogenesis. It's thought that vegetables, fruit and fibre-rich foods protect against it; fats, red meat, and excessive consumption of calories, and obesity increase the risk of developing it.
