Research Shows Connection Between Tree Nut Consumption And Colon Cancer Repair

Tree nuts may lower risk of colon cancer, according to a new study to be presented at the 2017 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting.

According to American Cancer Society statistics, there will be over 95,000 cases of colon cancer diagnosed this year in the United States alone.

The new study shows that regular consumption of tree nuts may lower the risk of colon cancer recurrence following the treatment of stage III colon cancer treatment.


Antibiotics and Colon Cancer

Chances are good that you’ve taken antibiotics before at some point in your life. In fact, approximately 80 percent of Americans are prescribed antibiotics annually.1 Unfortunately, the problems associated with antibiotic use extend even beyond that of increasingly resistant bacteria. New research now suggests that longer-term antibiotic use may promote abnormal growths in the colon that can lead to cancer.

High colon cancer risk caused by Western junk food can be reversed with healthy, high-fiber diets, study proves

(NaturalNews) Switching from a Western diet high in meat and fat to a diet rich in vegetables and beans may reduce a person's risk of colon cancer in just two weeks, according to a study conducted by researchers from the University of Pittsburgh and Imperial College London and published in the journal Nature Communications. Colon is the second most common cause of cancer death in wealthy countries.

Coffee could be key in cutting colon cancer risk

For years, doctors cautioned their patients against drinking too much coffee. Their fear was that the caffeinated beverage could be responsible for an uptick in cancer, especially cancers of the digestive tract such as colon cancer. In the last decade, though, physicians have come to some surprising conclusions about the real link between coffee and colon cancer.

Apple extract kills colon cancer cells better than chemo drug in latest study

Oligosaccharides from apples killed up to 46 percent of human colon cancer cells in vitro, and outperformed the most commonly used chemo drug by a wide margin at every dose level tested. And unlike toxic chemo drugs, oligosaccharides are natural, health-promoting compounds widely present in fruits and vegetables.
