Preventing Colorectal Cancer

Preventing Colorectal Cancer

The largest report on lifestyle and colorectal cancer ever published concludes that Americans can largely prevent the disease by maintaining a healthy weight, being physically active, drinking less alcohol, consuming only moderate amounts of red meat and avoiding processed meats.

The report, published in may by the World Cancer Research Fund/American Institute for Cancer Research (WCRF/AICR) also found convincing evidence showing that foods containing fiber offer protection against colorectal cancer.

The repot showed that colorectal cancer is one of the most preventable cancers. AICR has estimated that about 45 percent of colorectal cancer cases could be prevented if people ate differently, moved differently and stayed lean. That is over 64,000 cases in the United States each year.

  2. An innovative prospective clinical research study is now reporting its results, which appear to link Vitamin D deficiency to colorectal cancer death rates. As with previous research studies, the findings of this study strongly suggest that Vitamin D deficiency may be linked with a higher risk of death due to colorectal cancer. The findings of this clinical research study appear in the current issue of the journal Cancer.
