Dr Oz: Cancer Prevention Clinic – Colon Cancer Prevention & Tips

By on May 21, 2010

Doctor Oz did a Cancer Prevention Clinic on the Dr Oz show, and I am sure that he will save another life or two by raising cancer awareness. Cancer is a life threatening disease that many people (including me!) fear the most. Dr Oz had three other doctors who beat cancer on his show: Dr Dara Richardson-Heron, a breast cancer survivor, Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi, a skin cancer melanoma survivor, and Dr. David Servan-Schreiber, a brain cancer survivor.

Colon Cancer Prevention

A four year Colon Cancer survivor told Dr Oz that she showed some inflammation during her last colonoscopy.  How can you prevent cancer from coming back?  The lining in your colon can get small polyps which are the start of cancer often, but the polyps can easily be removed during a colonoscopy.  However, if you do not remove these polyps, the cancer gets angry and becomes invasive.

To lower inflammation in  your colon, cut down on red meat.  Red meat stimulates inflammation in your colon.  You should eat 80% vegetables and just a little bit of meat according to David Servan-Schreiber.  Vegetables reduce  inflammation in your body and since red meat takes a long time to get digested and to work its way through the colon, it causes more inflammation.  Dr Oz also suggested taking one aspirin a day to reduce inflammation, which can stimulate cancer.
