Here's how fiber rich diet can help keep colon cancer at bay

Cancer claims a lot of lives every year and experts constantly work on ways to diagnose as well as prevent the disease. Colorectal cancer is one of the most common forms of the condition as colonoscopy on a regular basis after the age of 50 is a key to detecting it.

But controlling the diet is a crucial lifestyle change which can help keep colon cancer at bay. Experts suggest that dietary fibers are important for preventing colon cancer as soluble fiber lower blood cholesterol and glucose levels.




Meanwhile insoluble fiber promotes bowel movements and creates a softening action in the digestive system. Adding citrus fruits, legumes, oats and vegetables including carrots and broccoli can fulfil the requirement for fiber in the body.

While 25 to 35 grams of fiber is needed to keep cancer at bay on a daily basis, it’s also important to not overdo it.
