Washington: Experiments on mice show that those born to mothers fed a diet supplemented with B vitamins are less likely to develop gut tumours.
Crott and colleagues linked the tumour suppression seen in the offspring of supplemented mothers with a protection against disruptions to the Wnt signaling pathway, a network of genes commonly altered in colorectal cancer."The strongest expression of tumour-suppressing genes in the Wnt pathway was in the offspring of supplemented mothers and the weakest was in the offspring of the mildly deficient mothers," said study co-author Eric Ciappio, doctoral candidate in nutrition at Tufts.IANS
