Health implications of natural non-nutrient antioxidants (polyphenols); bioavailability and colon carcinogenesis.

Objective

Colon cancer kills approximately 75000 Europeans per year and even a modest reduction would significantly benefit the EU both socially and financially. Many studies show an effect of naturally-occurring dietary plant polyphones (non- nutrient antioxidants) on carcinogenesis.
There are large differences in consumption of amount and type of polyphenols between North and South with lower risks associated with the Mediterranean diet. We will obtain urgently-needed data to permit a risk-benefit analysis of the significance of dietary polyphenols in the modulation of colon cancer, and whether there might be justification for dietary modification, the production of supplements and novel foods.
