As reported by Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin, a new study has found that broccoli is 95% lethal against colon cancer cells. This study was recently reported by Doctors Health Press, a publisher of various natural health newsletters books and reports, including the popular online Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin.
As reported in Doctors Health Press e-Bulletin on Monday, December 5, 2011, (http://www.doctorshealthpress.com/cancer-articles/the-vegetable-that-could-prevent-colon-cancer), in one recent clinical trial, scientists studied the effects of a broccoli extract on different human cancer cell lines.
The scientists found that broccoli specifically excelled in its performance against colon cancer cells. In fact, the vegetable showed 95% lethality when attacking the cancer cells.
Colon cancer usually takes hold in the large intestine or the rectum. Although it is considered one of the leading causes of death when compared with other forms of cancer, if diagnosed early, it can often be completely cured. Colon cancer starts to grow in glands in the lining of your colon and rectum. Doctors often refer to this type of cancer as “colorectal cancer.”
You can be at a higher risk for colon cancer if you eat a diet high in red or processed meats, already have cancer somewhere else, have inflammatory bowel disease, or have a family history of colon cancer.
When it comes to treating and preventing the disease, diet may play a key role. Everything you eat likely makes its way to the colon eventually. The more healthy food you digest, the less chance there is for toxins and other unhealthy substances to cause negative genetic changes in your colon cells. This is exactly why you’ll want to add broccoli to your diet on a regular basis.
