Colorectal cancer is the third major cause of cancer in the U.S., and is rated second for deaths due to cancer. There have been many studies in recent times linking diet to cancer risk, particularly diets high in red and processed meats having an increased risk and diets high in fish and poultry being associated with a decreased risk. There has been no proven correlation between a high fibre diet and decreased colorectal cancer risk, contrary to popular belief. Other dietary considerations to prevent colorectal cancer include vitamin B6, of which stores in the body can be depleted by alcohol consumption.
