The wide scope of the study - the relation between diet, lifestyle and the development of colorectal polyps and cancer in persons with Lynch syndrome - enables us to answer many specific research questions. So far this has led to results about obesity, smoking, dietary patterns and dietary supplements. A selection of these findings can be found in the GeoLynch newsletters and in scientific publications. Below you will find the links to these publications.
