March is, as it is every year, Colorectal Cancer prevention month. It’s at this time that we should take a few minutes to sit down (provided you’re hemmoroid free) and review your gastrointestinal health. Each year roughly 150,000 people suffer from Colon Cancer nationwide, though in many of those documented cases preventing fully developed cancer of the colon could have been a routine and relatively easy undertaking.
Most people will, at some point or another, develop polyps along the inner lining of their colon. Polyps are small, benign, non-malignant, pre-cancerous growths that if given time to develop promote the spread of cancer. So what can we do to counteract this seemingly inevitable polyp growth? Well, the answer is shockingly simple and astoundingly effective.
