Researchers now say that calcium previously thought to inhibit the growth of colon cancer cells may not actually be true due to inconsistent results obtained in a number of studies.
However researchers say that results of two well-designed, randomized controlled trials, have shown a moderate protective effect on development of colorectal adenomatous polyps, generally benign types occurring in about 30 per cent of middle-aged and older Americans.
