Eating Garlic Onions Daily Can Potentially Reduce Risk of Getting Colorectal Cancer Says Study

March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month and Hudson Regional Hospital will be posting information and hosting events about this topic. It has grown to be a rallying point for the colon cancer community where thousands of survivors, patients, advocates, and caregivers throughout the United States join to spread awareness. As per an ongoing report distributed in the Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Oncology, it was discovered that eating 50 grams of leeks, onions, and garlic may lessen the danger of creating colorectal cancer growth. My father, Congressman Donald M. Payne, passed away from colorectal cancer seven years ago today. Of those deaths, 15 were white, non-Hispanic and 12 were black or other race.

This means regular screening, beginning at the age of 50 and at regular intervals through the age of 75.

"I think important preventative measures from a colon cancer standpoint are to pay attention to your body", said Dr. Lange.

Colon cancer can be a silent killer.

Even more concerning is research released by the Colorectal Cancer Alliance found 71% of young people diagnosed are already in the advanced stages, partly because they ignored the symptoms.

Studies show that millions of people are missing out on the opportunity to identify and treat colorectal cancer early. "It's one of the things you really can take control of".
