In general, the present findings shed light on the primary prevention of colorectal cancer through lifestyle intervention, which deserves further in-depth explorations.”
For the study, 833 patients of colorectal cancer were matched to 833 healthy controls by age, sex and residence area. Demographic and dietary information was collected via face-to-face interviews using a validated food frequency questionnaire.
However, the association of garlic intake with cancer risk was not significant among those with distal colon cancer, the Xinhua reported. According to the study, the health benefits can be observed when one eats about 16 kg of allium vegetables every year or 50 grams every day.
