Magnesium and calcium both needed for colorectal cancer protection

The Life Extension Foundation has noted in their newsletter that in a presentation at the American Association for Cancer Research’s Seventh Annual International Conference on Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research, Qi Dai, MD, PhD reported that it may be necessary to have a greater intake of magnesium in order for calcium to protect against colorectal cancer.

Colorectal cancer, also called colon cancer or large bowel cancer, is the third most common form of cancer and the second leading cause of cancer-related death in the Western world.
