SOURCE: Natural News
Researchers, just publishing in the Canadian Journal of Physiology and Pharmacology (CJPP), have found thata diet enhanced with vitamin and mineral supplementation can lower the risk of developing precancerous colon cancer lesions by up to 84%. Colon cancer is the second most common form of the disease affecting men and women in the US, with nearly 150,000 new diagnoses each year.
The Full Text article describes how animals that were fed a high-fat, low fiber diet, while also being exposed to a carcinogen, developed pre-cancerous lesions of the colon along a pathway similar to that found in humans.
The group of animals that underwent a similar treatment and diet, but were also provided a daily vitamin and mineral supplement, demonstrated an 84% reduction in the formation of pre-cancerous lesions which did not develop into tumors.
