‘Western diet’ linked to colorectal cancer

‘Western diet’ linked to colorectal cancer, Scientists are investigating how a high fat diet, which is low in fiber, can lead to changes in the digestive system, which can increase the risk of colorectal cancer in young adults, especially those with a family history of the disease.

The result of this inflammation is the aging of cells more quickly as well as the vulnerability of those cells to cancer. According to research conducted by researchers from Ohio State University, a “Western diet” can disrupt the delicate balance of bacteria in the intestines, which can lead to digestive problems.

During the weekend, they presented their findings at the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, which is held in Chicago every year.

According to the OSU scientists, people who experience early-onset colorectal cancer are biologically 15 years older than the chronological age at which they were diagnosed. Moreover, patients who developed colorectal cancer late in life had a similar chronological and biological age when they were diagnosed.

Despite researchers’ efforts to learn more about what causes early-onset colorectal cancer, young people are still being diagnosed with it everywhere in the world at alarming rates.

According to the American Cancer Society, 20% of new cases of colorectal cancer diagnosed in 2019 were in individuals younger than 55 years of age at the time of diagnosis, up from 11% in 1995.
