Brief description Colorectal cancer is very common in Western society. Population studies have reported that high consumption iron-containing foods and red meat, the latter being a source of both haem and iron, are risk factors for colorectal cancer. This study will identify the levels of dietary haem and iron that promote colorectal cancer development. Also, it will determine the mechanisms and relative contribution of iron and haem to pro-carcinogenic pathways that result in colorectal cancer.
