Can the regular intake of vitamins and minerals in the daily diet of the individual help and diminish the risk of colon cancer while protecting him against the carcinogens, questioned editor of CJPP, Dr. Grant Pierce. A research was printed in the periodical Canadian Periodical of Physiology and Pharmacology and it found that the rats who were daily given the minerals and multivitamins demonstrated a lower risk of mounting colon cancer while they were uncovered to carcinogens. It is yet not clear if the multivitamin supplementation intake has been helpful for the cancer patients or not. The research is imperative as it throws light and paves a way for the cancer patients who are in real requirement of direction on the importance of minerals and multivitamins which are prescribed throughout cancer.

The researchers then analyzed and scrutinized the rats that were nourished with a high fat diet for a period of 32 weeks. Their diet contained around 20% of fat. They were segmented into 6 groups and were open to the elements to carcinogens and supplements. The rats were nourished with high fat along with low fiber diet and they were open to the elements to carcinogens, which resulted from pre cancerous lesions. They were provided with regular minerals and multivitamin supplements which demonstrated an imperative lessening in the development of pre-cancerous lesions besides it did not expand tumors.

The human colon cancer resembled much to the colon carcinogensis which was induced in the rats under study. The authors of the study concluded and put forward that minerals and multivitamin supplements synergistically added to the cancer chemo preventive possibility and so the daily supplements of minerals and multivitamins helped in the reduction of risk of colon cancer. The authors there by proved that the regular intake of multivitamins and minerals helped in the reduction of colon cancer.

The National Cancer Institute reports that colon cancer forms in the tissues of the colon (the longest part of the large intestine). Most colon cancers are adenocarcinomas (cancers that begin in cells that make and release mucus and other fluids).

Estimated new cases and deathsfrom colon and rectal cancer in the United States in 2012:

 New cases: 103,170 (colon); 40,290 (rectal)
 Deaths: 51,690 (colon and rectal combined)
