Metastasis remains the main cause of cancer-related mortality, despite major scientific advances in the understanding of the molecular and genetic basis of cancer. The term metastasis refers to the spreading of cancer cells to peripheral tissues, which they colonize after shedding from primary tumors and travelling through the blood stream or lymphatic system. Understanding the mechanisms of metastasis initiation and progression is critical to developing new strategies to treat and prevent metastatic disease.

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common types of cancer, affecting more than 1 million people globally every year. Although inherited genetic disorders such as the Lynch or the Gardner Syndromes and the familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) are strongly associated with the development of CRC, they only occur in a small fraction of the population. On the other hand global aging and an unbalanced diet seem to have become prominent risk factors. In light of the aftermaths of the World Health Organization's (WHO) report on the association between red or processed meat consumption and the risk of developing CRC, a better understanding of the best approach to treatment is urgently...
