In October 2015, the World Heath Organization released a report from the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) relating to processed meat and colorectal cancer. As experts weigh in on these warnings on processed meat, we thought this article from Independent out of the UK provided some helpful guidelines for reducing your risk of cancer:
- Stop smoking.
- Avoid the sun.
- A diet that is low in red meat.
- Foods high in fibre.
- Two servings of fruit and three servings of vegetables a day.
- Obesity and being overweight.

Oh… and don’t forget to get screened for early detection and prevention of Colon Cancer.
