Want to decrease your colon cancer risk?

A study of 55000 people published last month looked at the relationship between colon cancer and lifestyle.  This 10 year study identified 5 factors that together could have reduced the incidence of colon cancer in this group by almost one quarter.  What were the 5 factors? 1. Not smoking,  2. Exercising, 3. Limited alcohol intake, 4. Keeping your waist size in check, and 5. a diet with plenty of fruits & veggies and limited fat & red meat.  I guess our colons and our hearts both like the same stuff.  Want to read a little more?
