Are high-protein diets bad for your colon?

March 16 2011Reuters Health: The high-protein, low-carbohydrate diets many people turn to for weight loss might have potentially harmful long-term effects on the colon. Researchers found that a protein-heavy, low-carb diet created certain changes in the colon that could, over time, contribute to colon cancer risk.

The concern raised by the studies is that the risk of colorectal cancer might be raised by long-term adherence to diets that are high in protein and low in carbohydrate, especially fiber. People should also be aware, that a high protein intake over months to years might have ill effects in the colon. People should be cautious about consuming too much protein and too little fiber over a prolonged period.

People seeking to lose weight should be sure to get enough fiber in their diets. In general, experts recommend that adults get about 28 grams of fiber per day — though it’s not known whether that’s enough for someone on a high-protein weight-loss diet.
