What You Eat Changes Your Risk For Cancer–But Which Ones?

Dr John La Puma

Few British know that what they eat changes the risk they’ll get cancer, according to a survey of 4000 UK residents.

Cancer and diet are specific. For example, red and processed meat appears to cause colon cancer. So does charring of red meat. High sugar and starch intake cause colorectal cancer in men, but not women. High calcium intake seems to prevent colon cancer in women. (Women over age 50 should get at least 1200 milligrams daily, in a

readily digestible form

–either calcium carbonate, citrate or ascorbate).

Diet also changes your risk for lung, breast, prostate, bladder, mouth and throat cancers. A diet low in fruit and vegetables increases your risk. And habitual coffee drinking is associated with less liver cancer.

Know your risks. Your cancer is probably preventable. Start with being different: know that being overweight or obese increases the risk. Control your weight.
