In this video, we're going to talk about colon cancer (colorectal cancer) and what I would do to help prevent colon cancer or prevent it from coming back.

Colon cancer prevention tips:

1. Consume foods that are high in CLA (conjugated linoleic acid).

CLA is the only natural fatty acid that the National Academy of Sciences accepts for having consistent anti-tumor properties.

CLA is high in certain foods, such as:

• Grass-fed red meat

• Grass-fed dairy

2. Consume fermented vegetables and fermented dairy

Fermented vegetables and dairy have shown significant anti-cancer properties in animal studies. You may want to consume fermented vegetables on a regular basis with each meal.

Fermented foods to consume:

• Kefir

• Kimchi

Cucumbers (pickles)

• Cabbage (sauerkraut)

• Olives

3. Take probiotics

Probiotics have an effect on cancer cells that is called apoptosis. Basically, they cause cancer cells to commit suicide. Probiotics are very important to take regularly.

4. Do fasting

Fasting is probably the most important thing on this list. Fasting has a direct inhibitory effect on colorectal cancer. Fasting also gives the GI tract a chance to reset. It also causes the natural probiotic microorganisms in your gut to increase in diversity. They thrive and become stronger. It's important to note that 70-80% of your immune system is in your gut.

5. Get plenty of fiber

Fiber turns into SCFA, which can directly inhibit the growth of colon cancer. But, don't get your fiber from grains or from a powder. Get your fiber from vegetables instead, such as low-starch leafy greens.

6. Consume vegetables

Vegetables have strong anti-cancer effects because they contain phytonutrients. Vegetables can significantly decrease the risk of colon cancer.
