New Report Finds Whole Grains Lower Colorectal Cancer Risk, Processed Meat Increases Risk
A recent report by the American Institute for Cancer Research has shown
that there is strong evidence of links between preventable lifestyle factors

estimates that 47% of colorectal cancers could be prevented each year if

achieve recommended daily whole grain intakes, the vast majority of
Americans stand to benefit by increasing their whole grain intake.
