More fish and fruit, lower cancer risk.
A study presented at the European Society for Medical Oncology World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer in June 2017 suggests that consuming a Mediterranean-style diet that includes more fish, more fruit, and fewer soft drinks is a dietary pattern that offers the most protection against colorectal cancer. Researchers analyzed the diets of 808 people and found that each one of these three dietary choices was associated with a more than 30 percent reduction in the incidence of having an advanced, pre-cancerous colorectal lesion, compared to people who did not make these choices. People whose diets had more fish and fruit and fewer soft drinks had a combined risk reduction of about 85 percent.
