Nutrition for Colorectal Health
Join us as we discuss the nutrition tips and lifestyle habits that can lower your risk for colorectal cancer.
Colorectal cancer is the third most common type of cancer in both men and women and is the second leading cause of cancer death after lung cancer. Many colorectal cancers can be prevented through regular screening. Screening can find precancerous polyp abnormal growths in the colon or rectum so they can be removed before becoming cancer. Several screening tests have been developed to help doctors find colorectal cancer early, when it may be more treatable. We know that detecting colorectal cancer at an early stage improves survival rates.
