In vitro fermentation and prebiotic potential of novel low molecular weight polysaccharides derived from agar and alginate seaweeds.
Fermentation properties and prebiotic potential of novel low molecular weight polysaccharides (LMWPs) derived from agar and alginate bearing seaweeds was investigated. Ten LMWPs were supplemented toExpand
The effect of cruciferous and leguminous sprouts on genotoxicity, in vitro and in vivo.
Vegetable consumption is associated with a reduced risk of colorectal cancer, which is the second most common cancer after lung/breast cancer within Europe. Some putative protective phytochemicalsExpand
Watercress supplementation in diet reduces lymphocyte DNA damage and alters blood antioxidant status in healthy adults.
BACKGROUND Cruciferous vegetable (CV) consumption is associated with a reduced risk of several cancers in epidemiologic studies. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine the effects ofExpand
Seaweed and human health.
Seaweeds may have an important role in modulating chronic disease. Rich in unique bioactive compounds not present in terrestrial food sources, including different proteins (lectins,Expand
Potential anti‐cancer effects of virgin olive oil phenolson colorectal carcinogenesis models in vitro
The traditional Mediterranean diet is thought to represent a healthy lifestyle; especially given the incidence of several cancers including colorectal cancer is lower in Mediterranean countriesExpand
Anti-cancer properties of phenolics from apple waste on colon carcinogenesis in vitro.
Colorectal cancer is one of the most common cancers in Western countries. The World Health Organisation identifies diet as a critical risk factor in the development and progression of this diseaseExpand
Colon-available raspberry polyphenols exhibit anti-cancer effects on in vitro models of colon cancer
Background There is a probable association between consumption of fruit and vegetables and reduced risk of cancer, particularly cancer of the digestive tract. This anti-cancer activity has beenExpand
Diet and cancer: assessing the risk
Globally, colorectal cancer (CRC) is a leading cause of mortality from malignant disease. Case–control and cohort studies provide strong support for a role of diet in the aetiology of CRC. However toExpand
Diet, fecal water, and colon cancer--development of a biomarker.
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a leading cause of cancer incidence worldwide. Lifestyle factors, especially dietary intake, affect the risk of CRC development. Suitable risk biomarkers are required inExpand
Gastrointestinal modifications and bioavailability of brown seaweed phlorotannins and effects on inflammatory markers
Abstract Brown seaweeds such as Ascophyllum nodosum are a rich source of phlorotannins (oligomers and polymers of phloroglucinol units), a class of polyphenols that are unique to Phaeophyceae. AtExpand
