Risk Factors for Colon Cancer:

In some countries where colon cancer is unknown, the diet consists chiefly of fruits, vegetables and whole grains. The dietary fiber intake is 12 to 15 grams a day. In this country, where colon cancer is high, many people consume an average of 3 to 5 grams of fiber a day. Low-fiber animal products are suspect. A lifestyle that encourages diabetes will also encourage cancer, as more cancers occur in diabetics.

The following may increase the risk of developing colon cancer:
  • High meat diet
  • High fat diet
  • Low fiber diet
  • Long "transit time" for intestinal digestion
  • Aromatic spices, pepper, ginger, etc.
  • Alcoholic beverages
  • Beer consumption increases the risk of rectal cancer.
  • Previous cancer of breast, colon or endometrium.
  • Eating between meals and eating more than two meals a day.

    Treatment Regimens:

    The objectives of the following treatment regimens for cancer are to improve circulation to and oxygenation of the cells, to change the intestinal flora with a high fiber diet, to discourage cancer cell growth with hot baths, to stimulate the immune mechanism for cancer resistance, and to combat toxins which cause anemia and loss of appetite.

    A lack of exercise, irregularity in sleep and eating times and a diet high in protein, refined sugars, grains, and oils are all associated with a greater risk of cancer. Fats are repeatedly incriminated in medical reports as being likely to promote cancer when used in large quantities. Animal experiments indicate a much higher incidence of cancer from high protein diets. There are some encouraging results from treating leukemic children with a low protein diet.
