Did you know that whole grains, fruits and vegetables decrease a person’s risk of colon and rectum cancer? This food group is actually called natural colon cleansers because they contain high amount of fiber that cleanse the intestine by removing fatty deposit in the digestive tract. The high fiber diet is also ideal for individuals who wanted to lose weight. It also helps control the blood sugar levels of persons with diabetes.
Please remember that a diet high in fat and deficient in fibrous foods increase a person’s risk of colon and rectum cancer. The major risk factors, however, are personal or family history of cancer, polyps in the rectum and inflammatory bowel disease.
