Glucosamine and chondroitin have been popular joint remedies ever since a large study published more than a decade ago found that they were effective for arthritis relief. Now, a new study led by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, in New York, has found that the combination has a protective effect against cancers of the colon and rectum, as well. The research, which analyzed data from more than 68,000 women and 27,000 men, was published in the International Journal of Cancer.
