• Meat intake, meat cooking methods, and meat-derived mutagen exposure and risk of sessile serrated lesions

    1 month ago - By American Journal of Clinical Nutrition

    ABSTRACTBackgroundRed and processed meat, recognized carcinogens, are risk factors for colorectal neoplasia, including polyps, the precursor for colorectal cancer. The mechanism is unclear. One possible explanation is the mutagenic activity of these foods, perhaps due to generation during cooking. Few studies have evaluated meat intake and sessile serrated lesion risk, a recently recognized precursor, and no study has evaluated meat cooking methods and meat-derived mutagens with SSL risk.ObjectiveWe evaluated intakes of meat, meat cooking methods, and inferred meat mutagens with SSL risk...
