We analyzed data on dietary habits of 2818 patients during 26 years, and after this period 441 patients were found intestinal and / or rectal polyps. The results show that intake of cooked green vegetables once a day or more reduces the risk of polyps by 24%, when compared to foods entered less than 5 times a week. Also, it appears that dried fruit consumed three times a week reduces the same risk by 26%.
