Magnesium may reduce colon cancer risk: Meta-analysis | Longevity science |
Increased intakes of magnesium may reduce the risk of developing colon cancer, says a new meta-analysis of data from 338,979 people.


The decrease risk is small, just 7% for each 50mg increase in magnesium intake. A large percentage of people do not get the recommended intake of this mineral.


Based on this evidence, it appears that even attaining the RDA would offer many people additional health protection.
