    Flinders Medical Centre Foundation: Resistant starch: a promising dietary agent for the prevention/treatment of bowel cancer associated with inflammation. (Bowel cancer). Resistant starch: a promising dietary agent for the prevention/treatment of bowel cancer associated with inflammation. Two resistant starches (fibre like products that make the bowel contents much healthier) will be compared in an inflammation-driven cancer model. We anticipate that these agents will generate specific compounds in the development of bowel cancer.
