Increased intake of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids elevates the level of apoptosis in the normal sigmoid colon of patients polypectomized for adenomas/tumors.
To clarify preventive effects of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) against colorectal carcinogenesis, we performed a dietary intervention in patients polypectomized for colorectalExpand
