Research suggests a diet rich in probiotics discourages colon cancer

Posted March 10, 2014

Good news: If you’re a fan of probiotics, another health benefit has been added to the ranks, this time concerning lowered colorectal cancer (CRC) risk. A known immune booster, probiotics also hinder harmful pathogens in the gut that can lead to cellular mutations. Not only that, certain species of beneficial bacteria form conjugated linoleic acid in the colon, which may inhibit the development of cancer through anti-inflammatory action.

Vitamin B3, fiber ‘protects against colon cancer and inflammation’

Posted January 20, 2014

Previous research has suggested that a diet rich in fiber may reduce the risk of colon inflammation and cancer. But new research suggests that niacin, also known as vitamin B3, may also help protect against these conditions.

Decoding the link between calcium deficiency and colon cancer

Posted December 18, 2013

A tiny, transparent fish embryo and a string of surprises led scientists to a deeper understanding of the perplexing link between low calcium and colon cancer. By studying zebrafish embryo skin, University of Michigan researchers decoded cell messages underlying abnormal colonic cell growth of the kind that can lead to tumors and colon cancer in calcium deficient individuals. They have also tested this new mechanism in human colon cancer cells.

Nigella sativa is cancer’s worst nightmare

Posted November 11, 2013

Much to the dismay of many pharmaceutical giants and doctors who reap big rebate checks from recommending chemotherapy treatments, Nigella sativa has been proven over and over again to successfully treat cancer without the use of conventional treatments. Nigella sativa has been shown to be effective against numerous cancers, such as pancreatic, colon, prostate, breast and even brain cancers. Indeed, Nigella sativa is cancer’s worst nightmare and a ray of hope for people who may have died otherwise.

Scientists Learn How Soy Foods Protect Against Colon Cancer

Posted August 6, 2013

University of Illinois scientists have evidence that lifelong exposure to genistein, a bioactive component in soy foods, protects against colon cancer by repressing a signal that leads to accelerated growth of cells, polyps, and eventually malignant tumors.

Soy Protein may Reduce Colon Cancer Metastasis

Posted July 9, 2013

Soy peptide lunasin was found to reduce colon cancer metastasis in mice, say researchers. “In this new study, we find that giving lunasin orally at 20 mg/kg of body weight reduced the number of metastatic tumors by 94 percent—we went from 18 tumors to only one. And that was done using lunasin alone; no other type of therapy was used,” said Elvira de Mejia, a U of I professor of food chemistry and food toxicology.

Why we need starchy foods to protect from colon cancer

Posted February 20, 2013

Starchy foods aren’t all bad, despite fears that carbohydrates lead to weight gain and other diseases. Researchers as University of Colorado say resistant starches are especially important to help fight colorectal cancer that happens in surprisingly simple, yet effective ways at a cellular level.

This Magic Mineral May Prevent Colon Cancer and Boost Brain Health

Posted January 20, 2013

Decline in memory and normal thought processes, as well as increased risk for digestive cancers are ever present on the minds of many aging adults. Degenerative brain health leading to Alzheimer’s dementia and a lifetime of poor diet precipitate increased risk for colon cancer, both chronic conditions that are easily prevented by maintaining adequate magnesium stores at the cellular level through supplementation and healthy diet.

Omega-3s, CoQ10 Reduce Colon Cancer Risk

Posted December 20, 2012

A new study in the British Journal of Nutrition found daily supplementation with an omega-3 triglyceride (TG) and coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) may decrease the risk of colon cancer. The randomized, double blind trial, “Effects of EPA, y-linolenic acid or coenzyme Q10 on serum prostate,” analyzed the effects of the three ingredients on serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels in healthy Iranian men (Br J Nutr. 2012 Nov 30:1-8).
