Association of fiber and colorectal cancer risk differs depending on dietary assessment method
Date:4/20/2010

hese findings strengthen existing evidence that supports recommendations to increase dietary fiber intake in populations to reduce colorectal cancer incidence," the authors write. They suggest that "the fact that we found no association usingthe FFQ may explain the lack of convincing evidence relating fiber intake to a substantial reduction in colorectal cancer risk in some previous studies that relied on FFQs."

In an accompanying editorial, Ross Prentice, Ph.D., of the Division of Public Health Sciences, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, notes that accurate measurement of dietary components remains a major challenge in studies of diet and cancer risk. He calls for the development of biological markers to measure intake more accurately. "The explicit use of biomarkers to correct nutritional epidemiology associations for systematic and random measurement error in dietary assessment seems a logical next step in the nutritional epidemiology research agenda," he writes.
