top things to stop doing if you have colon cancer

Stop Using Tobacco (Or Don’t Start)
“I already have cancer, so why should I quit now?” Smoking (or any tobacco use) increases your risk of many cancers and it weakens your immune system.

Your body is busy waging a war on cancer cells – now is not the time to give it more work mopping up free radicals and carcinogens from the tobacco use. Talk to your doctor if you are smoking to help alleviate anxiety over your diagnosis or treatment. He or she can help you find healthier alternatives to control stress.

Stop Char-grilling Meats
It’s not just what you eat, it’s also how you cook it that matters. When animal proteins are cooked at very high temperatures (think grilling, frying), carcinogens form in the meat. These compounds increase your risk of breast and colon cancers. If you want to use the backyard grill, consider grilling your veggies and slow-roasting your meats inside to decrease your carcinogen intake.

Stop Poisoning Your Colon with What You Eat and Drink
Everything you eat and drink ends up passing through your colon. Your diet, weight and alcohol consumption can directly impact your chances of cancer recurrence.

Stop making unhealthy food and drink choices and start learning how your diet impacts your body.
