To test the hypothesis that a high risk for cancer of the colon might be associated with high concentrations of neutral steroids in the colon and with breakdown of these compounds by intestinal bacteria, the faecal neutral steroid concentrations of 84 rural South African Black adults (a population at low risk for colonic cancer), and of 98 North American White adults (a population at high risk for colonic cancer) were compared.
