Colorectal Cancer Is on the Rise

Did you know that Colorectal Cancer is the third most common cancer worldwide? 

Colorectal cancer affects the digestive system including both small and large intestines, as well as the rectum. It is the 3rd most common type of cancer accounting for about 10% of all cancer and because of its high mortality rate, is the 2nd leading cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide. 

American Cancer Society (ACS) shows young patients are being diagnosed with colon and rectal cancer at higher rates in the last 25 years making it the leading cause of cancer-related death in men under the age of 50 and the second highest cancer-related death for women under the age of 50. The percentage of colorectal cancer patients between the ages of 20-49 has nearly doubled from 11 percent to 20 percent, according to research published by the American Cancer Society. 

Colorectal cancer is difficult to diagnose with many cases starting with small clumps of cells that form on the lining of the colon or rectum called polyps causing no symptoms until they begin to grow. 

Researchers are unsure why rates are increasing in younger patients but more than half of all cases of colorectal cancer diagnoses are linked to lifestyle factors, including

• Excessive alcohol drinking 

• Lack of physical activity 

• Smoking 

• Unhealthy diet 

Family history plays a significant role in increasing the risk of developing colorectal cancer, according to the American Cancer Society. People whose parents, sibling, or child is diagnosed with colon or rectal cancer under the age of 50 are as much as four times more likely to develop cancer themselves. 

Did you know that most health problems can be traced back to an imbalance in the gut? 

Intensive research is being conducted to investigate genetic factors and the gut microbiome, which have been changing over time that may increase your risk for colon cancer and other diseases. 

Most of us spend very little time thinking about our gut and tend not to think about what we cannot readily see. However, inside your gut is a real living colony of good and bad bacteria and each day is a battle between these bacteria. Unfortunately, if the bad bacteria proliferate, the immune-system can be compromised and your health suffers. 

Probiotics are live good bacteria and good yeast that can help restore a thriving colony of good bacteria in your digestive-system keeping your gut healthy so your immune system can fight off intruders and you enjoy wellbeing.

Previously it was thought that only potency mattered when it came to probiotics. However, due to the lack of diversity of the guts microbiome research determined we need several different strains of bacteria in a probiotic because different strains do different things for our bodies. There are 8 major roles of probiotics and no one strand does them all. In turn, all these probiotics need food, and not the same type of food for each strand. Vital Flora provides organic fruit and vegetable fiber or prebiotics, in all formulas to feed each strand.
