Colon Cleansing

Eat fish for better colon health


If you're concerned about the health of your colon, there are many things that you can do to try and improve it. For example, researchers from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School recently found that consuming fish may be good for this part of the body. You should also look into taking an herbal colon cleansing supplement to help boost your health.

Reuters reported on the study, which found that people who regularly consume fish have 12 percent lower risk of developing or dying of colon or rectal cancer over those who do not.

"People who rarely eat fish may experience health benefits in a variety of areas – heart disease, reproductive and now colon cancer –  by increasing their fish consumption somewhat," said researcher Michael Gochfeld, M.D.

The scientist added that these benefits could be due to the fact that fish is a good source of healthy omega-3 fatty acids. According to the American Cancer Society, colon cancer is one of the lead causes of cancer death in the U.S., so it's important to take any and all preventative efforts to keep from developing it.
