Abstract

Carotenoid intake from natural sources has been hypothesized to reduce the risk of colorectal cancer (CRC). The purpose of this study is to consolidate epidemiological evidence for the association between these nutrients and CRC development. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of epidemiological studies to investigate whether the intake of specific carotenoids from natural sources, as well as combined carotenoids, is associated with the risk of CRC, overall and by anatomic subsite.
