Colon cancer can take years to develop and poor dietary habits at an early age can put you on the fast track to cancer in adulthood. This is what a team of Harvard University researchers recently discovered when they looked into the diets of almost 20,000 women.
The women who ate the most servings of chicken during their high school years had a dramatically lower risk of ever developing colon tumours.
Those who replaced just one serving of red meat a day with chicken were able to reduce their risk of colon tumours by an amazing 40%!
The researchers concluded that incorporating more chicken into your diet could help you prevent colon cancer
They also found that substituting red meat for fish produced similar results.
The rise of colon cancer...
Because the researchers didn’t establish a direct link between colon cancer
and red meat as such, it's difficult to pin it down. But, the problem could very well be with processed meat.
Processed meat has been linked to a number of cancers. And, when you consider teenagers' diets these days, there is a real risk we'll be seeing an increase in the number of colon cancers in years to come.
If you have teenage children or grandchildren, send them this issue of Health Bytes and help them to start incorporating more organic chicken and fish into their diet. It could keep your child or grandchild colon-cancer
free later in life.
Of course, replacing red meat for chicken or fish can only be beneficial for your health too. And, there's more and more studies coming out on the healing properties of food, take a look here...

Imagine getting a prescription from your doctor and instead of heading to your local pharmacy, you drop by a special restaurant and get it filled by the chef who prepares a delicious meal made especially for you! This is a reality in China!
This mouth-watering meal is made of specially selected ingredients designed to have a potent, healing effect to wipe out the exact medical condition the doctor is treating you for.
Unlike in the West where the focus has been on developing drugs and complicated surgeries, Eastern doctors have always studied the drug-like medicinal effects of food instead. There, doctors categorise and prescribe food much like a Western doctor will prescribe drugs!
