Applications to Earth: Colon Cancer

As mentioned before, colon cancer is the second leading cause of death from cancer in the United States today. A diet intervention to protect against its development should work equally well on Earth as in space. Also, certain groups, such as radiation workers, those undergoing radiation treatment for colon cancer, and individuals genetically predisposed to colon cancer, who are at higher risk for this cancer could benefit both from the diet discussed here, and from the non-invasive early detection of this disease.
