Total fluid intake, specifically water intake, has been suggested to protect against colorectal cancer. We examined the association of total fluid intake with colorectal cancer endpoints and possible effect modification by fiber intake within the Netherlands Cohort Study (N = 120,852).

For rectal cancer risk in men, there was a nonsignificant positive trend for total fluid intake [>1,500 vs. 6 vs.
