What to Eat to Help Prevent Colon Cancer

A healthy, balanced diet is an essential part of maintaining colon health.

“Only a small percent of colon cancer is hereditary,” says Sherry Henricks APN/CNP at Northwestern Medicine. “Which means dietary lifestyle choices play a large role in colon health.”

Many of the components of healthy eating ring especially true for colon health. Fresh fruits, fresh vegetables and whole grains are associated with a lower risk of colon cancer especially fruits and vegetables high in beta-carotene. In practice, this means choosing yellow and orange vegetables like carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin and summer squash. In addition, fiber-rich foods such as brown rice, nuts, seeds and beans play a role in promoting colon health. Apples, pears and broccoli are also great choices with fiber benefits. Omega-3 fatty acids, like wild salmon, walnuts and olive or canola oil, can also contribute to a colon-healthy diet and recent research from Northwestern Medicine suggests even coffee could be beneficial.

On the flip side, processed foods pose a risk to colon health which means avoiding bacon, sausage, hot dogs and lunchmeats as well as limiting fatty cuts of red meats.

Eating a healthy diet that promotes colon health is easier and more instinctive than you may expect. It can feature many of the recipes already in your collection.
