A diet rich in colorful fruits and vegetables may contain compounds that can reduce the risk of developing colon cancer and inflammatory bowel disease, finds a new study. A high-calorie diet increases the risk of colon cancer by elevating colonic mucosal interleukin-6 (IL-6) expression, which plays a role in inflammation. Elevated levels of IL-6 are correlated with proteins, such as Ki-67, which is linked to the spread and growth of cancer cells.
