The Strange Food DESTROYS Colon Cancer
If preventing colon cancer isn’t high on your priority list, it should be.
Colon cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S., killing over 100,000 people every year.
There are lots of different ways to fight it (none of them very fun) – but your best bet is to avoid getting colon cancer in the first place.
Fortunately, scientists have just found a truly easy way to do it.
And, believe it or not, it involves one of the weirdest looking foods around.
A recent study published in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry found that purple potatoes contain compounds that cam dramatically lower your risk of colon cancer.
The odd appearance of purple potatoes may have turned you off to them in the past.
But purple potatoes have something their white counterparts don’t: extremely high levels of phenolic acids and anthocyanins.
These antioxidant compounds are highly anti-inflammatory, and they’ve been proven especially effective against breast, prostate, colon, and oral cancers.
They’ve also been shown to stop cancer cells from spreading.
Studies have even found that purple potatoes contain 2 TIMES the antioxidant power of vitamin C!
But what makes this recent study unique is that it gave us a look into WHY these dark-colored potatoes are so beneficial against cancer.
For this study, researchers fed pigs one of three diets: a high calorie diet, a high calorie diet plus purple potatoes, and a standard diet (which served as a control group).
Those fed the high calorie diet PLUS the purple potatoes had IL-6 levels that were SIX TIMES lower than the standard diet.
This is a clear demonstration of the anti-inflammatory powers of the compounds in these potatoes.
This is important because high inflammation is a major risk factor for colon cancer (and lots of other cancers, for that matter).
Of course, I’m not suggesting that you scarf down purple potatoes at every meal. There are plenty of ways to get more anthocyanins in your diet.
To find fruits and vegetables that contain lots of anthocyanins, just look for the ones that are dark red or purple: berries, red cabbage, red onions, radishes, pomegranates…and purple potatoes.
To a brighter day,

p.s. If you’re concerned about colon cancer (and especially if anyone in your family has ever had it), make sure you’re getting screened regularly. Colon screenings will detect growths called polyps, which can be removed before they turn cancerous. The 5-year survival rate is over 90 percent in colon cancers that are caught early.
