The objective of the study was to examine the effects of the intake of dietary fat upon colon cancer risk. The study was an analysis of data from 13 studies previously conducted comparing the dietary habits of 5,287 people with colon cancer with 10,470 people without colon cancer.
This analysis of 13 studies revealed that those with the highest dietary fat intake had an 8% reduction in the incidence of colon cancer.
