Diet and colon cancer reoccurrence go hand-in-hand

Filed under:

In another study on the affects of diet on cancer, those colon cancer patients who indulged in diets containing meat, desserts, fat and refined grains were three times more likely to have a colon cancer recurrence than those who shifted their post-cancer diet away from these unhealthy items.

Surprised? Shouldn't be -- diet and cancer are so closely related that eating foods with tons of saturated fats and chemicals can take a genetic predisposition to cancer and speed it along.

What's important here is that after cancer treatment (hopefully, successful), one should change their diet to one full of healthy options instead of bad nutritional choices. It's all up to each individual patient.
