Carrot Intake and Risk of Colorectal Cancer: A Prospective Cohort Study of 57,053 Danes

Regular intake of carrots may improve an individual's chances of avoiding colorectal cancer.

This study looked at the association between fondness for carrots and the occurrence of colorectal cancer. Researchers utilized data obtained from animal and human studies. Over 50,000 men and women from Denmark took part in the human study. 

Researchers noted that colorectal cancer risk was reduced by 17% in participants who ate at least 2 carrots per week. This study demonstrates that adding more carrots to our diet may help to keep colorectal cancer at bay.
