In brief: Complicated question

There are no specific studies of deplin and colon cancer.
However, deficiencies of folate (folic acid) may be associated with an increased risk of colon cancer: http://tinyurl.Com/p28h8m6 . On the other hand, if people have certain polymorphisms of mthfr, supplementation with Folic Acid (not necessarily deplin) may increase risk: http://tinyurl.Com/pdsulcn the company recommends caution w/existing tumors.
