Health Notes

Life-Long Eating Habits Affect Colon Health

Life-Long Eating Habits Affect Colon Health
Life-Long Eating Habits Affect Colon Health
: Main Image
Higher intakes of calcium, vitamin A, vitamin C, fruit, and milk were associated with a lower risk of colon cancer
Certain dietary factors could influence the risk of developing colon and rectal (colorectal) cancer. And according to a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, it's not only recent dietary habits that matter; even in adolescence, foods you eat may affect the chance of developing colorectal cancer later in life.

A long time coming (or not)

Until now, most of the research conducted on the relationship between diet and colorectal cancer has focused on the ten years prior to a cancer diagnosis. But these types of cancer can take decades to develop, so researchers were interested to see if looking back at the diet over the lifetime might give a better picture of dietary influences on colorectal cancer development.

As part of the NIH-AARP study, 292,797 men and women answered detailed questions about their dietary habits ten years previously and at ages 12 to 13. This information was then correlated with the risk of developing colorectal cancer over subsequent years.

Eating for cancer prevention

Here's what the researchers found when they looked at dietary patterns at different times of life on colorectal cancer risk.

Diet eaten ten years previously: Higher intakes of calcium, vitamin A, vitamin C, fruit, and milk were associated with a lower risk of colon cancer. Higher intakes of total fat, red meat, and processed meat were associated with a greater risk of colon cancer. Higher milk intake was associated with lower rectal cancer risk, whereas processed meat seemed to increase rectal cancer risk.

Adolescent diet: Vitamin A and vegetable consumption both seemed to protect against colon cancer development.

To get a sense of how lifetime diet affects colorectal cancer risk, the researchers looked at certain dietary habits that were present at both time points that they investigated. Here's what they found:

  • Higher calcium, vitamin A, vegetable, fruit, and milk intake were associated with lower colon cancer risk.
  • Higher calcium intake was associated with lower rectal cancer risk.
  • Eating more red meat was associated with greater rectal cancer risk.
  • Eating more red and processed meat was associated with greater colon cancer risk when these dietary patterns were practiced both during the teen years and ten years previously.

"For certain dietary exposures, the protective or deleterious effect was present only when individuals were high consumers in both adolescence and recent adulthood," the researchers noted. "We found evidence that the pattern of exposure over the life course was particularly relevant for a protective effect of fruit against colon cancer and of calcium against rectal cancer and for the adverse relations between processed meat and colon cancer and between red meat and rectal cancer."

Before it starts

Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer worldwide. Most cases of colorectal cancer don't show up until at least age 50, but it can occur at any age. People with a personal or family history of colon cancer or polyps are at higher risk of developing colorectal cancer, as are people with inflammatory bowel disease.

Colorectal cancer, if caught early, is very treatable. But as with most conditions, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Here are some steps that you can take to lower your risk of colorectal cancer.

  • Eat right. And encourage your children to do the same. This study highlighted the importance of life-long dietary patterns on colorectal cancer risk. Focus on getting plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and adequate calcium, keeping fat intake in check, and limiting red and processed meat consumption.
  • Get active. Numerous studies have shown that physical exercise can help prevent many cancers from developing. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity exercise on five or more days of the week.
  • Lose weight, if you need to. Higher body weight has been implicated as a risk factor for many cancers, including colorectal cancer. Regular exercise and a high quality diet can help you reach your target weight.
  • Don't smoke. Smoking raises the risk of several cancers, including colorectal cancer. The longer you smoke, the higher the risk. Quitting smoking now can help prevent and reverse many smoking-related health conditions.
  • Get screened. Regular screening for colorectal cancer with sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy should begin at age 50, and earlier for people who are at high risk. During these procedures, polyps can be removed to help reduce the chance of them progressing to cancer.

Comments about Health Plus® Inc. Super Colon Cleanse®:

My fiancee and I took it to kickstart a diet and clear out any "junk"... It does just that. I do reccommend taking the minimum dosage, my fiancee took the max the first day and was absolutely miserable, we couldn't leave the house. After that he switched to the minimum and said it was much better. It's does help with a little weight loss, we both lost about a pound a day for the first few days, but I wouldn't take it longer than the 10 days like the directions say. It doesn't taste good, kind of like grass, but we mixed it in some juice and chugged so it wasn't terrible. We have decided to to do it the first week of each month. It does exactly what it says it does! We will purchase more once we run out.

        Comments about Health Plus® Inc. Super Colon Cleanse®:

        I must say I had my doubts at first about this product from the few negative comments I read. But then it dawned on me no 2 people are the same. I think in order to see the ultimate best results of this WONDERFUL product (which is what I'm currently doing starting today and will continue to do so for the duration of 10 DAYS) is simply letting my intestinal tract rest!! Yes, this means NO FOOD-- I am doing the LEMONADE CLEANSE by Stanley Burroughs. I figured it out that in order to detoxify the body thoroughly you have to cleanse each major organ by ELIMINATING WASTE-- that means a combination of LOTS OF WATER, HERBAL TEAS, THE LEMONADE CLEANSE or SIMPLE WATER FAST and MILD EXERCISE to ACCOMPLISH WEIGHT LOSS, CLEARER SKIN & OPTIMUM HEALTH!!! I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THE NEW ME IN 10 DAYS!!! THIS PRODUCT IS GENTLE, WORKS QUICK AND IS HIGHLY EFFECTIVE!!! I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!

          I took it after meals for three days and had to stop. At first I figured it was because my body wasn't use to being "helped out" so I gave it time. This product gave me the worst abdominal pain-not even craps get that bad! The only good thing about it was that it did work, the pain was just not worth it.

                Like everyone else who has tried this product I am ridiculously irregular! I've tried everything under the sun, I've been to numerous doctors and nothing has helped me like this product has!
                I thought it would take days for me to see results but it only took a few hours, and the second day was even better! I'm so glad I gave this product a chance! I have tried a lot of cleansers but this is the first one to truly work for me.
