Abstract

This review examined the association between folate and risk of colorectal cancer and single-nucleotide polymorphisms in 4 genes coding for folate metabolism-related enzymes may be involved. Individuals with single-nucleotide polymorphisms in these key enzymes in the folate pathways may need different amounts of dietary folate to prevent colorectal cancer.
