Eating whole grains every day lowers the risk of colorectal cancer, says a recent news release from the American Institute for Cancer Research. The new report, compiled by the institute and the World Cancer Research Fund, indicates the more whole grains, brown rice, and whole-wheat bread you eat, the better for you.The report evaluated information worldwide about how diet, weight, and physical activity affect colorectal cancer risk. After analyzing 99 studies that included data from 29 million people, researchers found eating high amounts of red meat every week, being overweight or obese, and having two or more alcoholic beverages a day increased the risk factors.
Along with whole grains, increase your intake of fruits and vegetables and get your protein from plant foods and legumes. The doctors agreed that when it comes to cancers, you can’t have guarantees but you can lower risks.
