Food Therapy: Dried Peas and Beans In Reduced Risk and Treatment of Colon Cancer

Kyle J. Norton

Dietary factors can influence cancers formation and growth, intake of dried peas may have a potential effect in reduced risk of colon cancer, a recent study suggested

Dried pea is a small but nutritionally mighty member of the legume family, genus Pisum belongings to the family Fabaceae with healthy source of proteins, fibers, vitamins and minerals.

Colon cancer is a condition characterized by cell growth disorderly and irregularly in the tissues of colon.

In a case-control designed study of 186 men and women with a mean of 58 years of age revealed that consumption of legumes such as dried beans, split peas, or lentils daily and regularly was inversely associated with reduced risk of colon cancer, after adjusting all potential confounding variables.

The relative risk odd ratio of colon cancer occurrence in these subjects was ameliorated substantially in compared to control.

Researchers also indicated that risk colon cancer decrease may be attributed to legumes dietary fiber together with enormous presences of phytochemical compounds.

Dr. Agurs-Collins T, the led author said, "Nurses working with African-Americans should encourage consumption of these foods to decrease this risk".

Other, in the study of the same subject suggested that by modifying diet and lifestyle habits, adenomatous polyps and 25-35% of colon adenoma risk could be avoidable. As consumption of legumes at least 3 times/wk reduced the risk of colon cancer by 33% after adjusting for meat intake.

Furthermore, the research result also postulated that high frequency of consumption of cooked green vegetables, dried fruit, legumes, and brown rice was associated with a decreased risk of colorectal polyps.

Interestingly, in the investigated effect of consumption of standard diets supplemented with freeze-dried vegetables (peas, spinach, sprouts and broccoli) and carotenoids (all-trans beta-carotene and palm oil carotenoid extract) on surrogate end-point markers for colorectal cancer in an azoxymethane-induced rat model, researchers at the Unilever Research Vlaardingen, illustrated that
peas, spinach, sprouts and a mix of all vegetables diet expressed a significantly reduced the number of foci with >2 aberrant crypts/focus by 37, 26, 23 and 26%, particularly in the pea and spinach intervention groups.

After adjusting to other risk factors, researchers filed the following reports
1. Peas, spinach, sprouts and a mix of all vegetables diet was beneficial effects in reduced risk of colorectal carcinogenesis
2. Consumption of several types of vegetables inhibits early onset of colorectal carcinogenesis
3. and suggest that the vegetable-induced effect is more pronounced in advanced lesions.

Taking altogether,  dried peas may be used as therapeutic ingredients in reduced risk and treatment of colon cancer and diseases related to colon abnormalities.
