Fruits, Veggies May Reduce Colon Cancer Risk

Colon cancer is the second most common cancer worldwide. And people who regularly eat red or processed meat are up to 50 percent more likely to develop colon cancer than those who avoid meat. This is shown by a research according to the Cancer Project.

But, a plant-based diet can play a key role in cancer prevention! A crossover study recently published in the journal Cancer Research confirmed this.

Dr. Linda Savory, a family physician at the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine said, “It’s thought that a high bulk diet with fruits and vegetables can cause stool to pass through faster… Whatever toxins that are in the food would clear through more rapidly. The stool has less time to touch the colon wall and cause an abnormality.”
