If you are at risk for colon cancer, you can lower your risk of getting this disease by avoiding certain foods!

Scientists evaluated 486 people with Lynch syndrome, which is a genetic disorder that predisposes people to cancer. It leaves 70% of them with the colon variety. In the evaluations, they were asked about their diets and classified into one of four groups according to what they ate: high in fruits, vegetables and whole grains; high in meat and coffee; high in a Mediterranean-type diet that included fish, leafy greens, pasta, sauces and wine; and high in fried snacks, fast food and diet soda.

Can you guess with group had the longest risk?

Yep: the fourth group had the highest risk for developing colon cancer. Eveb after evaluating the numbers and factoring in those who smoked and had other risk factors, the junk food group had DOUBLE the chance to develop cancerous colon tumors!

You probably knew this already — but the science behind it gives you even more of a reason not to ignore it!
