In brief: It May Be

Studies have shown that diets with a high intake of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains are associated with a lower risk of colon cancer.
In contrast, high red-meat diets are associated with an increased risk.

In brief: Colorectal CA/diet

Many investigators believe that certain diets high in animal fat, red meat, and nitrites from processed meats, are associated with an increased risk of colon cancer.
Leafy green vegetables and foods rich in antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins counter this effect. There are some studies that purport to show that Aspirin can decrease the risk also. A well-balanced diet is the best choice.
