Systematic review: primary and secondary prevention of gastrointestinal cancers with antioxidant supplements
TLDR
The evidence on whether antioxidant supplements prevent gastrointestinal cancers is contradictory and further research is needed to establish a causal relationship between antioxidant supplements and gastrointestinal cancers. Expand
Review article: nutrition, obesity and colorectal cancer
TLDR
A large number of patients in prosperous industrialized countries with a high age-adjusted incidence of colorectal cancer are diagnosed with at least some types of cancer, but the mechanisms remain obscure. Expand

Selenium in the prevention of colorectal cancer
TLDR
The limited clinical data suggest a potential benefit of selenium supplementation, however, more conclusive evidence is needed before any dietary recommendation can be decided. Expand

TLDR
This meta-analysis found no evidence in favor of a protective effect of the studied antioxidant supplements in the prevention of colorectal cancer or cancer related mortality. Expand
Chemoprevention of Colorectal Cancer.
TLDR
This work reviews the prospect of chemoprevention of CRC, results from preclinical and human studies, challenges, and future directions, and suggests agents that might be used for average-risk as well as high-risk groups, and to prevent colorectal cancer recurrence after therapy. Expand

This review will present an overview of strategies for primary and secondary prevention of CRC, including endoscopic, pharmacologic, and dietary interventions. Expand
Antioxidant supplements for preventing gastrointestinal cancers.
TLDR
Assessing the beneficial and harmful effects of antioxidant supplements in preventing gastrointestinal cancers could not find convincing evidence that antioxidant supplements prevent gastrointestinal cancers. Expand
Supplemental calcium in the chemoprevention of colorectal cancer: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Assessment of the evidence for the effectiveness of calcium in reducing the recurrence of adenomas and the occurrence of colorectal cancer among populations at high, intermediate, and low risk of the disease indicated that supplemental calcium was effective for the prevention ofadenoma recurrence in populations with a history ofAdenomas, but no similar effect was apparent in populations at higher or lower risk.

TLDR
Most of the available data do not support the idea of a protective effect of vitamins and antioxidants against colorectal carcinogenesis, so it is too early to draw any conclusions on the effects of fibre, calcium supplementation, aspirin therapy and dietary intervention. Expand
