While being a vegetarian has been shown to help reduce occurrences of certain cancers, heart disease, diabetes and obesity, being a certain type of vegetarian yields maximum benefit with regard to lowering the risk of colorectal cancers.
A large US study has found, after using medical records, cancer
registries and dietary questionnaires pertaining to almost 80 thousand people that a diet based on plants and fish is the most effective against colon cancer
, of all the vegetarian diets. After an average of 7 years of monitoring, there were 380 cases of colon cancer
and 110 cases of rectal cancer, 22 percent less than for the regular meat eaters.
Pescovegetarians had the greatest risk reduction, 43 percent. These are people that eat fish at least once a month but meat less than once a month.

The real key to healing cancer is to wipe out the stealth disease lurking behind it...
I admit I was downright shocked when I found out that cancer isn't actually what kills most cancer patients! And I've been a doctor for well over 20 years - so not much surprises me anymore.
Even more astounding - this monumental discovery goes back to the 1970s when former US Air Force Dr Joseph Gold uncovered the REAL killer, a condition that no one in the medical field was even talking about!
That's right - the real culprit behind 3 out of every 4 cancer deaths isn't cancer at all. No! It's a syndrome you've probably never even heard of - called cachexia (pronounced "ka-kek-see-ah").
And if you or someone you love is battling cancer... You definitely can't afford to ignore what could very well be the only natural compound that stops this stealth killer in its tracks.
Other types of vegetarian diets have shown less benefit in this area. For lacto-ovo vegetarians the risk reduction was 18 percent - their diet includes eggs and dairy while limiting fish and meat to less than once a month. Vegans, who eat meat, fish, eggs and dairy less than once a month, had a 16 percent reduced risk. Even indulging in fish and meat once a week had a benefit, albeit smaller - only 8 percent reduction of risk.
Fish has high concentration of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D, both of which have previously been shown to protect against some forms of cancer.
So as the study reveals you don't need to cut all meat, dairy and eggs from your diet in order to see some benefit. You only need to reduce their consumption and increase the fish and seafood intake to be a lot healthier.
