Colon Cancer

Common habit triggers colon cancer [Are YOU at risk?]

“I can’t believe I ate the WHOLE thing.”
If you’ve ever said that–or something similar–with a groan, congratulations you’re perfectly normal. Because the truth is, we’re all guilty of overeating from time to time.

Maybe that meatloaf you had for dinner was so good you served yourself a second–or even third–helping. Or perhaps you couldn’t say no to that value-sized tub of “buttery” popcorn at the movies.

And overindulging on occasion is no big deal.

But if you find yourself chronically overeating, you’re compromising your health in countless ways. And that includes one you may never have expected.

Researchers say overeating can send your risk for colon cancer climbing. And I’ll explain why in a minute.

We don’t know exactly how many folks out there are routinely overdoing it. Some experts estimate that at least 15 percent of us could be classified as “binge eaters.”

But with well over 30 percent of both men and women in America meeting the definition of obese, the number of people who eat far more than they can burn off is likely much higher.

And that’s putting them (and perhaps you) in the danger zone for colon cancer… the third most common cancer and second leading cause of cancer deaths here in the United States.
Overeating sends colon cancer risk skyrocketing

A team of researchers at Thomas Jefferson, Harvard University and Duke Medical School made this shocking discovery when they took a closer look at the intestinal linings of a group of tubby lab rats.

To everyone’s surprise, they discovered that the overeating was essentially sending an “off” signal to a critical hormone that stands between cancer and us. The hormone, called guanyalin, helps protect us from cancer by triggering special receptors in our intestines which discourage tumors.

But in the obese rats, the guanyalin activity had been dialed WAY back. And the receptors never got the proper jumpstart they needed.

In fact, according to the researchers, guanyalin activity is about 80 percent lower in folks who are the most overweight when compared to their thin peers. Which experts say is likely a large part of why obese folks also have a 50 percent higher risk for colon cancer.

You can start to bring that risk back down by making a commitment to more mindful eating. Overindulging often happens when we’re bored, distracted or stressed. So that’s when you need to be your most on guard.

Stock your pantry, fridge and fruit bowl with high protein and lower carb foods and healthier snacking options. They will fill you up so you feel satisfied and are less likely to overeat.

But don’t stop there.
4 MORE proven ways to lower your colon cancer risk

It turns out colon cancer is one of the most preventable cancers there is. And while stopping the overeating is a critical first step there are a few more steps you can take to reduce your risk even further.
1. Commit to screening:

Mainstream medicine is guilty of over-screening for lots of things. Which can lead to anxiety and unnecessary procedures. But regular colorectal cancer screening between the ages of 50 and 75 is a worthwhile one.

Regular screenings can slash up to 85 percent of colon cancer cases and 60 percent of colon cancer deaths, according to experts. There are several tests options, which you can discuss with your doctor.

If you’re over 75, regular screenings may no longer be necessary, unless you’re in a high risk group. So check with your doc.
2. Quit smoking:

If you still smoke stop. Smokers have a higher risk for developing colon cancer. Plus they have a higher risk of dying from the disease.

3. Tweak your diet:

Treat the produce aisle like a pharmacy and fruits and vegetables like your medicine. Plant foods are packed full of cancer-fighting phytonutrients and antioxidants. So eat more of them.

Highly processed meats such as hot dogs and lunch meats are associated with a higher risk of cancer. The curing process causes certain cancer-linked compounds to form. Research has found folks who regularly eat processed meats have a 76 percent higher risk than folks who rarely do.

Swap them out for fresh grass-fed meats instead. And when grilling out avoid charring your food which creates cancer-linked compounds as well.
4. Exercise:

Unseating your seat more often will help you lose weight lowering you colon cancer risk. And a meta-analysis found folks who were the most active had a 24 percent lower risk of developing the disease than those who were the least active. Try to get at least a half hour of exercise every day.

Commit to these changes and you’ll slash your risk for this killer starting today

7 terrific reasons you should be having MORE sex

If you’re a little shy, you might want to brace yourself. Because it’s time for some straight shooting. For married folks only.

Everybody knows that sex is usually a lot of fun. But if we’re being honest you have to admit, sometimes it can feel a little like a chore.

Maybe you’re a bit too tired. Or perhaps your joints and muscles ache or just don’t move as easily as they used to. And truthfully, a cuddle on the couch is nice, too.

Well you aren’t going to get an argument from me on that. It’s true nothing beats a good cuddle. Besides when it comes to sex, it’s all about quality, not quantity.

And the good news is while how often we’re doing it usually does drop as we get older, we also tend to become masters at the intimacy part. In other words, we get really good at pleasing our partners and ourselves.

But I have some news that could inspire you to go ahead with that roll in the hay a little more often anyway.

Sex linked to longer healthier lives

It turns out sex is literally good for your health. In fact, every time you do the deed you…

1. Improve your immunities:

A study out of Wilkes University in Pennsylvania revealed that folks who had sex one to two times per week produced more of an antibody called IgA than those who opted out more often. IgA improves our immunities, helping to protect us against illnesses such as colds and flu.

And that’s not all. A 25-year study by Duke University found that sex literally helps us live longer. Both men who had sex regularly, and women who reported enjoyed having sex, lived longer healthier lives than folks who had less sex or simply didn’t enjoy it as much.

2. Get a cardio workout:

You know how everyone from your doctor to me is always trying to get you to exercise a bit more often? Well I have great news. Sex counts as a cardio workout when it comes to heart health.

A study published in the American Journal of Cardiology found that men who have sex twice a week have a 45 percent less risk of heart disease. And another study revealed the likely reason why.

Lovemaking slashes the levels of a chemical called homocysteine that’s behind a number of heart issues, according to the study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. Guys who have sex regularly tend to have healthier blood flow and better blood vessels as a result. Which helps keep the chemical from building up.

3. Reduce your stress levels:

Sure, we’re all familiar with that relaxed glow you get after a round of bedroom aerobics. But it turns out the stress busting power of sex goes so much further than that.

Scottish researchers found that folks who had sex regularly responded better to stressful situations. Their heart rates and blood pressure levels stayed lower whenever life got stressful.

4. Boost your brainpower:

If you think smart is sexy, you’ve got one more reason to hop into the sack more often. Canadian researchers found that ladies who have more sex have better memory and word recall than their peers who stick to just sleeping in the bedroom. 

Experts say that sex may be activating the hippocampus, the part of your brain that’s responsible for learning and memory.

5. Reduce cancer risk:

This benefit is for the guys, and those of us who love them. Early research published in the 

Journal of the American Medical Association has linked ejaculation to a reduced risk of prostate cancer. 

The magic number appears to be 21 times per month. But if five (plus) nights a week sounds far too ambitious for you, don’t worry. There’s good reason to believe that having frequent sex, even if it’s not most nights a week, brings plenty of benefits too.

6. Gain better bladder control:

You use many of the same muscles during sex that you use for bladder control. And this is true for both men and women. 

Which means every time you have sex you’re giving those muscles a good workout and making them stronger. That can translate into better bladder control, which can become an issue for women after childbirth and all of us as we age.

7. Improve your sleep:

According to the National Sleep Foundation, sex doesn’t just release feel-good hormones. It also releases the sleep hormone prolactin. Which means having sex allows you to fall asleep easier, and get a better nights rest.

Plus it turns out having sex can lead to a pattern I think we can all get behind. According to a group of researchers out of Michigan, women who have sex sleep better, get more rest and end up wanting more sex. And that, of course, makes them sleep better. Talk about a cycle you never want to break.

Oh, and let’s not forget sex is an excellent pain reliever. Making love releases the hormone oxytocin, which in turn triggers feel-good endorphins. So if you find yourself tossing and turning because your joints ache (or you have a headache) sex could have you slipping off to sleep in no time.
