You can prevent colon cancer by catching polyps
early, but can you prevent polyps? It might be impossible, but some healthy
habits can help:
A colorectal cancer-fighting diet of fruits, vegetables and whole grains will supply your body with the fiber and
antioxidants you need to keep your digestive system clean.
Exercising and maintaining a healthy BMI not only keep your system healthier,
but they'll also have you better prepared for surgery if you need it.
and cigarettes: If you know you're at risk for polyps, limit alcohol
consumption to only a glass a day. Don't smoke.
