Surviving cancer once is no cakewalk.
But beating it a second time?
That’s a battle you don’t want to face – because there’s always a chance you won’t be so lucky the next time around.
Now, new research reveals ONE MISTAKE many colon cancer survivors make.
And it’s one that could cost them their lives...
One test you should NEVER skip
In a moment, I’m going to reveal three simple steps you can take at home that’ll ensure you never have to face this disease again.
But first, new research reveals how too many folks who’ve survived colon cancer aren’t engaging in the most important step of all.
Colon cancer survivors who don’t have a colonoscopy in the years that follow have THREE TIMES the risk of dying from the disease.
Now, I’m sure every single colon cancer patient KNOWS the importance of a colonoscopy.
And I bet they PLAN to get one.
But not right away. After all, you’ve just fought that battle – and won – so when you finally get the all-clear sign, you can put it off a little while, right?
Well, the new study finds that’s exactly when you DON’T want to rest your rear.
The key is to get at least one screening in the three years after your cancer battle.
Don’t stop there.
3 steps for EVERY colon cancer survivor
Step one: Eat more fish, and take a fish oil supplement.
This is basic, right? Fish in omega-3 fatty acids are good for you in so many ways, but when you’re fighting colon cancer… or are working to stop it from returning… seafood isn’t just “good for you.”
It’s CRITICAL to your survival!
A 2016 study found boosting omega-3 intake after a colon cancer diagnosis will cut your risk of dying from the disease by a STUNNING 70 percent!
Step two: Eat more nuts.
Again, no surprise that nuts are healthy. What might be surprising, though, is that these delicious treats can fight tumor cells—especially the ones behind colorectal cancer.
A 2016 study found eating tree nuts after surviving colon cancer will cut your risk of recurrence by 46 percent and death from the disease by 53 percent.
There’s one other way nuts help. When you’re snacking on nuts, you’re NOT eating other junk – and avoiding the “other junk,” especially at snack time, is critical to the next step...
Step three: Avoid all processed foods in general – including processed meats – which contain chemicals such as preservatives, colors and flavors that have been linked to cancer risk.
That’s good advice in general, for anyone.
But for colorectal cancer survivors, there’s one form of processed food in particular you need to restrict or avoid completely...
Refined carbs – aka, pretty much all junk food including both snacks and sugar-sweetened beverages – can almost guarantee the disease will come back.
A 2012 study of more than 1,000 colon cancer survivors found eating refined carbs will increase the risk of recurrence and/or death from the disease by a terrifying 80 percent.
