What Digestive System or Colon Diseases are you vulnerable to based on your diet, life-style or heritage?
Every 9.3 minutes someone dies of Colon Cancer. Every 4.5 mins. someone is diagnosed.
Did you know that we can control and prevent many of the digestive system and colon diseases we endure simply by controlling our diet, getting enough of the right exercises and knowing our family history? That's right. Eating the right foods, taking the proper levels of supplementation, and preparing your foods appropriately can make a big difference when addressing most of the digestive system and colon diseases we face today. Working out appropriately, doing the right types of exercise at the proper intervals can also make a tremendous difference in our health. Lastly, sometimes we are prone to what our parents and grandparents suffered from. Or are we? It's important to know our family history, because it can help us do more of the things to prevent the ailments they suffered from in their lives.
Important items to consider:
1. Colon Cancer is the second leading cancer killer in the United States, after lung cancer.
2. The dominant theory is that a low-fiber diet is the main cause of diverticular disease. The disease was first noticed in the United States in the early 1900s.
3. Colorectal cancer is most common in men and women aged 50 years and older and the risk increases with age, with 93% of cases diagnosed in people over age 50.
4. Many cases of colorectal cancer could be prevented by having regular screening exams beginning at age 50.
5. Diverticular disease is common in developed or industrialized countries--particularly the United States, England, and Australia--where low-fiber diets are common. The disease is rare in countries of Asia and Africa, where people eat high-fiber vegetable diets. According to the National Cancer Institute’s own estimate, the number of new cases of colon and rectal cancer in the US for 2010 is 103 thousand and out of those cases over 50 thousand are predicted to result in death. That is definitely a very high percentage of deaths!
