Although high-calcium diets have been reported to reduce the risk of colorectal cancer, our preliminary data with the adenomatous polyposis coli (Apc) Min mutation (Min/+;Apc(Min/+)) mouse shows a paradoxical increase in intestinal tumor loads (> 65%) with high calcium diets. Since we previously demonstrated that increasing dietary calcium reduces adiposity, and Apc(Min/+) mice on high calcium diets exhibited profound loss of adipose tissue, we hypothesized that loss of an adipose tissue… CONTINUE READING
