Consume more fresh fruits and vegetables

The body needs antioxidants so it can fight cancer. The fresh fruits and vegetables contain antioxidants and magnesium which lowers the risk of developing colorectal tumors by 13%. Include more cruciferous vegetables, flaxseeds, and dry plums in the diet or take supplements.

Consume food high in vitamin D

The best source of vitamin D is the sun, but you can get this vitamin from the food also.  Include more foods rich in vitamin D and also take vitamin D3 supplements.

Avoid red meat

The meat itself it`s not the problem but the way it`s produced. The problem is that most of the meat sold in the supermarkets is from grain fed cows. The organic red meat is fine.

Avoid processed meats

Processed meats can be very harmful for the health. So, try to avoid cured, smoked or salted meats because they have chemicals and preservatives that can cause cancer. According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer – IARC processed meats are associated with colorectal cancer and are considered group 1 carcinogen.

Stop smoking and drinking

Try to stop smoking and drinking because they can cause different types of cancer.

Exercise as much as you can

Being physically active and exercising lowers the risk by 40% of colorectal cancer.

Consume more onion

This vegetable contains high amounts of quercetin. This compound is effective against ovarian, colon, prostate, endometrial, breast and lung cancer.

Sleep in dark

Sleeping in dark is important for proper rest because the light reduces the production of melatonin in the body.

Making some changes in the lifestyle can make a big difference. You should try to implement, if not all, some of the changes to improve your health and live long and healthy life.
