Colon and colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of deaths in the US. Unfortunately, this type of cancer is aggressive and using conventional treatments cannot guarantee complete eradication of malignant cells even if a patient goes into remission.
The good news is, you can reduce the risk of colon cancer by a staggering 50% without turning to drugs or gimmicky diet fads. By making better lifestyle and food choices, there is a huge possibility of beating cancer.
The colon, also referred to as the large intestine, plays a crucial role in our health. As food goes through the colon, salt and liquid are eliminated to prepare it for removal.
Colon cancer has been in the news after the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), concluded in late 2015 that processed meat can cause colon cancer in human and classify it as a Group 1 carcinogen.
The good news is that colon cancer can be prevented through the following lifestyle factors for up to 50%.
