* Polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and heterocyclic amines (HCAs) are carcinogens in the food supply, but as food items not implicated in the aetiology of colorectal cancer may actually be greater contributors to the total dietary intake of these compounds than red meat, they do not provide a plausible basis for implicating red meat in carcinogenesis.
Rapid metabolic phenotypes for acetyltransferase and cytochrome P4501A2 and putative exposure to food-borne heterocyclic amines increase the risk for colorectal cancer or polyps.
