Veggie Secret SLASHES Colon Cancer Risk 79%
Colon cancer is one of the most common cancers in the U.S.
It kills over 100,000 people every year, many of them seniors.
And even if you survive this cancer, its side effects can impact your quality of life forever.
It’s not unusual for people to experience bowel blockage, abdominal pain, chronic diarrhea, or sexual dysfunction – all good reasons to do your best to prevent colon cancer, tobegin with.
Fortunately, doing that has never been easier.
Research has shown that one powerful superfood can slash your cancer risk by as much as 79%.
And chances are, it’s in your refrigerator right now.
Onions are one of the best foods you can use to add flavor to your meals.
It turns out they’re also one of the best foods you can eat to prevent colon cancer.
Previous studies have shown that onions and other allium vegetables (like leeks, chives, shallots, and garlic) contain compounds like flavanols and organosulfur compounds that have anti-cancer properties.
But would eating more of them translate to protection against colon cancer?
To find out, researchers studied over 1,000 people – half with colon cancer and half without – to see if there was a correlation between eating allium vegetables and getting colon cancer.
The difference was remarkable.
People who ate the most allium vegetables had a 79% lower risk of developing colon cancer compared to those who ate the lowest.
The more of these veggies people ate, the better the protection.
This was seen with overall allium vegetable consumptionand also held true when the researchers looked at the consumption of individual vegetables, especially onions, garlic, and leeks.
Previous studies have also shown that people who eat the most allium vegetables tend to have fewer adenomatous polyps, which are precursors to colon cancer.
Of course, no amount of onions can protect you from bad habits like eating at McDonald’s or having microwaved popcorn every day.
But studies like this one prove why eating whole foods is one of the best things you can do to live a long, healthy life.
