Reduce your risk of colon
cancer by up to 66%
Colon cancer is very hard to cure if you don't "catch it early."S Unfortunately, it's difficult to catch it early. By the time you have symptoms, it's usually at stage 3 or stage 4. So prevention is vital. Eating a good diet and taking the right supplements plays a huge part in staying cancer free. In fact, two separate studies give easy solutions to cut your risk for colorectal cancer by up to 66%.
The study, which covered 22 years, found that fish oil can cut your risk. The Physicians Health Study followed 21,406 men. Those in the highest category of fish consumption (five times per week) had a 40% reduced risk of colorectal cancer compared to those eating fish less than once per week. Those with the highest intake of omega-3 fatty acids were also less at risk of colorectal cancers (by 25%).
As you may know, I'm a vegetarian. I get loads of omega-3 fatty acids from sources like chia seeds, hemp, flax, and green leafy vegetables. All of these sources are great for preventing colon cancer. Not only do they provide the fatty acids, but they also provide fiber, which is a great colon cancer preventive. However, I know not everyone is a vegetarian.
This study makes it clear that if you are going to eat a diet rich in animal protein, you need to base it on healthy animal protein, the way God made it. If you eat beef, then it should be grass-fed beef or other grass-fed animals. Grass is a leafy green that has plenty of omega-3 in it that the animal can absorb.

If you eat chicken, it should be organic, free-range chicken. And if you eat fish, it should be wild fish that swim with scales (no shellfish). I prefer Alaskan wild salmon. It doesn't matter if it's canned, frozen, or fresh.
In a separate study, a supplement helped reduce the recurrence of colorectal polyps by 66%. The researchers in this study gave the participants 5 mg of folic acid every day for over three years.
I've seen folic acid reverse degenerative cellular damage in almost every case of cervical dysplasia and colon lesions. I typically use 5 mg with 50,000 IU of vitamin A daily. It's nice to see the mainstream finally catching up.
