Subject: Fiber-rich diet could cut colorectal cancer risk, study finds
No one likes to talk about cancer, it is a very touchy subject for most people. However, Harvard has been conducting a study for the last 30 years and the study says if you have a rich whole-grain cereal and protein diet you have a lower risk of getting Colorectal cancer. Colorectal cancer is the second most deadly form and the third most common of the disease. Every little bit helps when it comes to our health, especially when trying to prevent such life changing diseases.
- Doctor Raaj Mehta and colleagues from Harvard Medical School (USA) suggest that a diet rich in fiber and whole grains could influence the risk of developing colorectal cancer linked to a strain of gut bacteria called Fusobacterium nucleatum.
- Fusobacterium nucleatum is an inflammatory bacterium that is thought to play a role in colorectal cancer by blocking the immune response triggered to combat tumor cells in the colon.
- However, the behavior of tumors not containing Fusobacterium nucleatum was unchanged and the risk of developing colorectal cancer not containing the bacterium was not reduced.
