How to limit your risk of bowel cancer

We all know that our risk of colon cancer is higher with IBD. Here are some ways to reduce your risk with diet:

1. Just give up processed meat. This includes ham, bacon, sausages and sandwich meats. 2. Reduce your red meat consumption. Try and limit it to 350-500g per week. 3. Eat more whole grains. If you are having rice, choose brown. 4. Eat more fruit and veg and pulses and beans.

I know what you are saying. My gut won't let me do that! Just do what you can for the stage you are currently in. Just doing less processed meat will help.
