Popular Drink SKYROCKETS Bowel Cancer Risk
Overall, rates of bowel cancer have been dropping in recent years—and that’s great news.
But in people under 65 years old, rates have been steadily increasing for the past decade.
In people aged 50-65, it’s been increasing by one percent every year.
But in people under 50, it’s DOUBLE THAT RATE.
What’s causing this alarming rise in colorectal cancer in such young adults?
Researchers think they’ve found the culprit.
Even with the overall decline in colorectal cancer, it’s still the second biggest cancer killer in the world, causing nearly 1 million deaths ever year.
As usual, the answer has to do with what you’re exposing your colon to, day in and day out.
You see, even though doctors will tell you we don’t know the exact cause of colon cancer, we do have a pretty good idea of the major risk factors.
And three major players are smoking, heavy alcohol use… and diet.
For many older Americans, the first two aren’t an issue.
But the fact that 32 percent of all American adults are overweight… and 36 percent of adults are obese… tells you that the third factor isn’t just a problem.
It’s a MAJOR problem.
This latest study adds proof to the pudding.
In a study that analyzed 96,000 women over 24 years, researchers found a strong connection between bowel cancer and drinking soda.
Women who drank two servings of soda per day were TWICE as likely to be diagnosed with bowel cancer, compared to women who only drank one per week.
Each additional serving per day was associated with a 16 percent higher bowel cancer risk.
There’s nothing good about sodas.
If you have them in your house—and in your life—it’s time to dump them down the drain for good.
There are plenty of other drink options that can actually reduce your chances of getting colon cancer.
Water and coffee are two of the best.
P.S. Research has shown that one powerful superfood can slash your colon cancer risk by as much as 79 percent. And chances are, it’s in your refrigerator right now. Click here to find out what it is.
