A study from the Netherlands found that people with Lynch syndrome, which confers a genetic predisposition to colorectal cancer and other cancers, who ate fast food or junk-food snacks were twice as likely to develop polyps as those with lower intake of such foods. The study did not establish a cause-and-effect relationship but researcher Akke Botma of Wageningen University said it suggests eating habits may play a role in polyp development among Lynch syndrome patients.
