Vegetarian Diets

Are Vegetarian Diets Associated with Lower Risk for Colorectal Cancer?

The New England Journal of Medicine studies different diets and found an association!!!

They studied 78,000 adults over a mean of 7 years and compared the incidence of colon cancer (490 cases) by diet.


The risk of colon cancer was lower by eating any diet in which fruit and vegetable intake was emphasized, with the greatest benefit in those consuming fish and avoiding red meat and chicken.
