Magnesium, Dietary Folate, and Dairy Products Might Reduce the Risk of Bowel Cancer, Study Suggests

A new research study suggests that intake of dairy products, Folate, and magnesium might reduce the risk of bowel cancer. Moreover, according to the various sources it is revealed that around 1 in every 20 people are at risk of developing bowel cancer in the U.S. alone and globally, over 2.2 million new cases and 1.1 million deaths are estimated to occur every year by 2030. Researchers also suggested that screening for the disease is important to detect the disease at an early treatable stage, as bowel cancer takes over 15 years to develop. Moreover, a healthy lifestyle plays an important role to avert the disease progression.

Researchers considered pooled data analyses of clinical trials and observational studies that evaluated the effect of dietary and medicinal factors on bowel cancer risk. Drugs that were considered include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), aspirin, and statins. Moreover the dietary factors include vitamins or supplements, tea coffee, fish, and omega 3 fatty acids, along with fruits and vegetables, fiber, meat products, and alcohol.

Later after evaluation, the findings suggest that aspirin is highly protective against bowel cancer lowering the risk by 14%-29% depending upon the doses ranging from 75 mg/day-325 mg/day. Moreover, researchers also reported intake of NSAIDs for around 5 years was diminished the risk of incidence of bowel cancer significantly by 26%-43%.

Furthermore, intake of Magnesium (minimum of 255 mg/day) reduces the risk by 23% lower, and high intake of folic acid lowered the risk by 12-15%. In addition, dairy products was associated with 13% to 19% lower risk of the disease. However, there is no information about the impact of vitamins E, C, or multivitamins on the disease and alcohol was linked with significantly increased risk. Researchers concluded that these research findings can aid healthcare providers in advising about the effective diet to diminish bowel cancer risk and might help in future research.
