Cancer Risk, IBS and Top Superfoods

Esher, United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 25, 2011 -- "Important news for all of us, especially those who are at increased risk of colon cancer." Says Kirsten Whittaker, editor of the DHB. "A new report suggests that eating less red and processed meats might just reduce your risk of getting colon cancer. And with colon cancer being the third most common cancer, after skin cancers, diagnosed in the United States it's good advice."

Want protection from prostate cancer? A new study finds that men who drink coffee (decaf or caffeinated) on a regular basis appear to have a lower risk of this disease, especially the more deadly form.

When the team looked at all types of prostate cancer, they saw that the highest coffee drinkers had a 20% lower risk of prostate cancer during the study follow up.

How's this for a fine example of mind over matter? An easy meditation technique has just been found to help ease the terrible symptoms of those who live with Irritable Bowel Syndrome or IBS.

The research reveals that women with IBS who performed mindful meditation on a regular basis had a 38% reduction in their symptoms. This was far better than the nearly 12% improvement noted by those who took part in a more traditional IBS support group.

Though we've all heard the warnings about our bulging bellies time and time again, a recent survey finds the message is falling on deaf ears. Just 57% of those who responded to the recent US national survey were worried about their weight, this is down from 70% in 2010, and is an all time low for the survey, a nationwide sampling of insights from consumers on food safety, nutrition and topics related to health.
