Colon Cancer Study: Results at Initiation Stage

The graph in this slide shows the effect of diet at the initiation stage, when colon DNA is damaged. A marker for oxidative damage to DNA (the type of damage that occurs from radiation) is the DNA adduct 8-OH deoxyguanosine. As shown here, fish oil feeding reduced DNA damage more than corn oil feeding did.
