Colon cancer: Colorectal cancer is common . The Mediterranean/Eastern population is less susceptible to
it. However, colorectal cancer affects younger people in our population. We believe
this is a reflection of a genetic susceptibility, which overwhelms
the environmental causes such as alcohol consumption, diet etc. Our population is thus suited to
identify the possible genetic
