When a tissue is chronically inflamed it often stimulates pathways in the cells that increase cancer risk. Eating colorful foods that are aromatic, nutrient-dense and low in calories tend to reduce inflammation and help protect against colorectal cancer. Healthy eating also tends to promote a healthy weight. Stored fat in the belly may play a strong role in inflammation, increasing the risk of the same cancer.
LifeTip: Tackle inflammation with a healthy diet and weight control, and have regular screenings. Watch “Prevent Cancer Naturally” with Dr. David DeRose for more recommendations.
