Janet Peacock publishes in Cancer Prevention Research

A study investigating unmetabolized folic acid (UFA), Tetrahydrofolate and Colorectal Adenoma Risk was conducted by researchers in the US, Canada and the UK, including UMS member, Professor Janet Peacock.

The study based on a earlier randomized trial concluded that ‘during the later follow-up period in which folic acid supplementation was previously seen to increase the risk of advanced and multiple adenomas, higher serum mF (methylated folates) was associated with a higher risk of multiple and/or advanced adenomas, but no clear indication that UFA played a direct role’.
