Abstract

Results of recent intervention trials suggest that calcium from low-fat dairy foods modulates the rate of human colon cell proliferation and that calcium supplementation reduces the rate of colonic adenomatous polyps. Further research from longer-term studies is necessary to confirm these findings.
