Intakes of starch, non-starch polysaccharides (NSPs), protein and fat have been compared with colorectal cancer incidence in 12 populations worldwide.
There were strong inverse associations between starch consumption and large bowel cancer incidence (large bowel r=-0.70, colon r=-0.76).
There was no significant relation with NSPs, although the association with large bowel cancer incidence was still significant when NSP was combined with resistant starch (RS) to give an estimate of fermentable carbohydrate (large bowel r=-0.52, colon r=-0.60).
The relationships between starch, RS and NSPs and cancer incidence remained statistically significant after adjusting for fat and protein intakes.
