November 11/London/Imperial College London -- After analyzing recent research, experts have suggested that a high-fiber diet can play significant role in minimizing the risk of colorectal cancer. Before suggesting the findings, they carefully examined the outcome of more than 25 related studies, compiled through the involvement of more than 2 million people.

During the study course, experts observed a balanced diet, one rich in fiber, including cereals and whole grains, has significantly declined the chances of developing deadly colorectal cancer. In addition, they also observed that around 10g increase per day has a close association with no less than 10% decline in the colorectal cancer risk as compared to the diets with lowest levels of fiber.

"In summary, our analysis suggests that a high intake of dietary fiber, particularly from cereal and whole grains, is associated with a reduced risk of colorectal cancer,” insisted the study authors.

Experts from the Imperial College London in collaboration with the Danish Cancer Society have concluded that higher levels of dietary fiber, especially in the form of cereal and whole grains, have significantly reduced chances of colorectal cancer.
