Healthy Living Can Prevent Nearly 25% of Colorectal Cancers

(HealthDay News) -- As many as 23 percent of colorectal cancers could be prevented if people followed five simple healthy lifestyle recommendations, Danish researchers say.

• At least 30 minutes of exercise a day.
• No more than seven drinks a week for women and 14 for men.
• Not smoking.
• Eating a healthful diet, defined as one high in fiber, with more than six servings (3 cups) a day of fruits and vegetables, and low in red meat and processed meat (no more than just over a pound a week), with less than 30 percent of total calories derived from fat.
• A waist size no more than 34.6 inches for women and 40.1 inches for men. Read more...
