Diets that incorporate ample fruits and vegetables have been linked to a decreased risk of colon cancer. This is in part due to the nutrients and antioxidants that are present in these foods, the high fiber content, as well as the correlation between diet and weight and colon-related illness. Eat more berries, pears, apples and other fibrous fruits and vegetables and limit intake of meat, alcohol and other ultra processed foods.
Water is essential to life. When you are not properly hydrated toxins can build up in your body and begin to create dis-ease. Drinking 2 liters of water or more a day can help move toxins and excrement through your colon more quickly.
Exercise is equally as important as what we eat and drink. Regular exercise can encourage more consistent bowel movements. The increase in blood flow and circulation makes your GI system more effective overall. Studies have shown that exercise, especially more rigorous forms, can greatly reduce the risk of developing some digestive disturbances.
