Eat Your Fiber to Protect Against Colorectal Cancer

December 11, 2012

Colon cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer-related deaths in the United States. Each year approximately 1.2 million people in the U.S. are diagnosed with colorectal cancer and each year about 600,000 people die.

There are a number of ways you can reduce your risk of contracting colon cancer, including diet and exercise. Daily dietary fiber also plays an important role in reducing your risk. A recent study found that “a high intake of dietary fiber, in particular cereal fiber and whole grains, was associated with a reduced risk of colorectal cancer.”

It’s important to eat different kinds of fiber each day. There are several food groups that can help you get the fiber you need. Fruits, vegetables, legumes and cereals all contain fiber. These are also the foods you want to eat each day to provide a healthy nutritional foundation as well.
