People who consume more magnesium (Mg) may reduce their risk of developing colon cancer, according to a recent study published in the European Journal of Clinical of Nutrition. Researchers reviewed eight studies of almost 338,979 individuals of whom 8,000 were diagnosed with colorectal cancer. Through data analyses, scientists found that those with the highest intakes of Mg had an 11 percent reduced colorectal cancer risk versus those with the lowest levels of consumption. Specifically, higher Mg intakes were linked with a 19 percent reduced risk of colon cancer and a six percent risk of rectal cancer. Source: Chen GC, Pang Z, Liu QF.
