Reducing Colon Cancer Risk With Diet

Oct 7, 2007
Colon cancer is very rare regions were peoples diet are mainly vegetables, and gain. It's more common Western nations and the US where a large part of their diet is meat.

A diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, beans and whole grains help prevent colon cancer. The American Cancer Society recommends at least five servings of these foods each day.

It's very hard to determine exactly what components of a healthy diet are protective. Some research has zero in on several possible.

Low Fats - Dietary fats and colon cancer have clear links. Fats boost the body's production of bile acids, which promote rapid cell growth.

High fiber - The indigestible part of plant-based foods, fiber moves food through the bowel quickly, reducing its contact with carcinogens and bile acids.

Oat bran has little help in colon cancer risk. But, Wheat bran helps more then vegetables and fruit fiber.

If you can get 25 grams of dietary fiber per day from vegetables, fruits, beans, whole grain cereals, and breads.

Calcium - studies show that calcium protects the colon by neutralizing bile acids and fatty acids. You should consume at least 1,000 Milligrams of calcium each and every day.

Antioxidants - not enough vitamin C and E and beta-carotene seem to increase the risk of colon cancer. You should eat a lot of fruits vegetables because these are the best sources of antioxidants.

Exercise - If you are not very active your chance of colon cancer increase. Physical activity reduces your risk by hastening the passage of waste through the body. It also stimulates blood flow to the colon. Try to stay as active as possible, do exercise at least 30 minutes a day.

Natural Cleanse opens the door to weight control, healing and rejuvenation. Colon cleansing is the process of eliminating impacted waste from the colon, and clearing the colon to allow for proper absorption of vitamins and minerals. Colon cleansing can be a safe and valuable process for eliminating toxins from the body and restoring normal muscular activity in the colon.

We all know that a, strong and well functioning colon is quintessential to maintaining the best possible health.
