Colon Health and Your Diet

Foods for colon health

Start the New Year off right by improving your colon health through eating a healthy diet. The World Health Organization (WHO) recently published research linking red meat and processed meat to colon cancer.  Decreasing the amount of processed meat in your diet may reduce your risk of developing colon cancer. Make an effort to increase your intake of fiber, lean protein, and healthy fats. These diet modifications will also help you control your weight. Maintaining a healthy weight is beneficial to your colon health. A well-rounded diet in addition to routine screenings, such as colonoscopies is essential to lowering your risk of developing colon cancer.

Take control of your health this year!
