Milk May Lower Colon Cancer Risk

Drinking at least a glass of milk a day may lower the risk of colorectal cancer, according to researchers who pooled some of the world's largest studies on the long-believed link.

Calcium from milk or other sources has long been thought to play a role in preventing colorectal cancer, a leading cancer killer. Studies show high calcium intake reduces the occurrence of polyps that can turn cancerous, but diet-tracking studies stopped short of finding final proof of a truly lowered cancer risk.

To better define that link, scientists at Boston's Brigham and Women's Hospital analyzed 10 studies that together tracked nutrient consumption of more than half a million people, nearly 5,000 of whom eventually got colorectal cancer.

People who consumed a glass of milk a day -- about 180 to 250 millilitres -- had a 12 percent lower risk of developing colorectal cancer than those who drank less than two glasses a week, the researchers report Tuesday in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

With more than a glass a day, the risk reduction was 15 percent.

Other dairy foods didn't show a statistically significant relationship.

A total calcium intake -- from diet plus calcium supplements -- of 1,000 milligrams a day was protective, too. The researchers calculated that if all study participants had consumed that much, the women may have suffered 15 percent fewer cases of colorectal cancer and the men 10 percent fewer.

Vitamin D, commonly added to milk, is also thought to play a role because it helps the body absorb calcium. The study found the highest doses of both nutrients provided the biggest protective effect.

The study was funded by the National Institutes of Health and National Colorectal Cancer Research Alliance.
