A healthy choice of food can save you from colorectal cancer

A healthy choice of food can save you from colorectal cancer

Health WomanColorectal cancer is crawling towards us at an alarmingly fast pace. It has become so common that there will be someone around you batting with it. And it is cases like that of Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees, Farrah Fawcett from Charlie’s Angels TV series in the 1970s, and the former president of the Philippines Corazon Aquino, for instance, who eventually succumbed to colorectal cancer. As fame and fortune alone may not save you from it, just step up and heed the following simple advice that everyone can do to stay away from colorectal cancer.

It is undeniable that today’s modern ways of life have been taking their toll on us mere mortals worldwide. The first and foremost factor, which is not restricted to colorectal disease alone, is stress arising from hectic everyday life, career commitments, etc. Another key factor is the food we eat. Though today’s food is indeed a feast for our eyes and taste buds, it is not necessarily a healthy choice for a healthy life in the long run. Today’s trend is eating fast and convenient, and this has given a rise of mass food processing for the global masses at the cost of nutritional value and so on. That is why we are now surrounded by processed foods (e.g. sausages, meatballs, potato chips), meaty foods, less-fiber foods, fatty foods, too concentrated foods (i.e. too sweet, too salty). It is found that meat-eating western countries encounter relatively higher incidences of colorectal cancer.

Therefore, in order to live a healthy life away from colorectal cancer, we will have to reverse the course of action above. The best solution is not to become stressed out, followed by eating a healthy diet. You can start to eat more consciously and responsibly yourself by modifying your diet, i.e. refrain from red meat in favor of white meat such as fish, chicken; increase food that is rich in fiber such as fruits, vegetables; avoid fatty foods, processed foods, too concentrated foods.

veggieIn conclusion, it is never too late to give it a try for your good health in the long term. Interestingly, Thai food is one of the best in the world in terms of its fresh, less meaty and herbal ingredients, with savory flavors much loved by foodies around the world. It is found that here in Thailand we have lower incidences of colorectal cancer, compared with our western counterparts. It is now time to find and savor the healthy secrets in Thai cuisine.
