Tips To Avoid Becoming A Statistic

TIPS for preventing and controlling colorectal cancer include a low-fat and high-fiber diet, exercise, quitting smoking and heavy alcohol consumption and maintaining a healthy weight.

It is important to visit a doctor as soon as key symptoms appear, such as runny or bloody stool, cramping and unexplained weight loss. A regular medical check-up after the age of 40 is also an excellent method in the prevention and control of colorectal cancer.
