High concentrations of fecal bile acids are associated with a higher incidence of colon cancer. Dietary changes that alter bile acid metabolism are therefore of interest. Here, we report the effect of feeding diets containing four fiber sources and two fat levels for 7 wk on bile acid excretion and small intestinal bile acids (an index of pool size) in(More)
Two bile acid extraction procedures were compared using endogenously radiolabeled tissues and feces. The method of Setchell et al. (J.

The time requirement for the method of Setchell(More)
