Incidence rates of cancers of the colon, rectum, female breast, and prostate were compared among native Chinese (Shangai), Chinese-American, and American populations.
Americans had fourhold higher age-adjusted rates of colon cancer, and twofold higher rates of rectal cancer than Chinese, which is consistent with elevated per capita intake of fat and lower intake of cereals and vegetables in the US.
Incidence rates of colon and rectal cancers in Chinese-Americans were nearly equal to the American rates, suggesting that the risk for tumour development in the lower intestinal tract is rapidly increased with transition to the US diet.
