7/15/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal- Monday

I received a brochure from my health insurance company.  It was a glossy magazine with articles and statistics in it. (I wish they would lower my premiums instead of doing a glamour magazine look-alike brochure…but not likely).  In the information they stated that colorectal cancer is the third-most-common diagnosed cancer in both men and women across the United States.

According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), colorectal cancer is preventable.  ACS says that moderate to vigorous activity five or more days per week is an effective risk reducer.  Avoiding processed or red meats are preferred possibly because of all the chemicals that are added to create shelf life (especially for processed lunch meats).   Try adding more fruits and vegetables to your diet, as we talk about regularly here on my blog.

The ACS’ best recommendation for the best defense against colorectal cancer is to receive regular screenings (especially if you have a family history of this or other cancers).  Work together with your physician about which screening tests to utilize and at what age to begin those diagnostics.  Information is your strongest defense!
