Researchers investigated various factors including diet, levels of physical activity and smoking in Scottish bowel cancer patients. They found links with some established risk factors of colorectal cancer - such as family history of cancer, physical activity and smoking. Their findings also identified new factors including high-energy snacks, `BBC News` reported.
