Have you ever thought about where the majority of our sicknesses and diseases comes from? We tend to point our fingers at the immune system because we are taught that if our immune system have been compromised, we get sick. Most people do not realize that a lot of our suffering actually comes from the colon. Medical professionals have come to the conclusion that our body pains and health issues begin in the colon. When there is unwanted waste in the house, we have that natural tendency to dispose of it quickly, the human body works in the same way. The food that we eat is quickly digested, the nutrients are separated and given to the body while the waste is quickly disposed of. If the waste is not disposed of quickly, it can become very toxic to the body. Remember that the body absorbs the nutrients from the food that is eaten, if you have a digestive system that is slow and sluggish, chances are, your body is also absorbing the toxic waste which will lead to cancer in the colon.
The low down on colon cancer that it is very common throughout the whole world and it is also 3rd on the cancer list for causing death. The reason why colon cancer is ranked 3rd is because of all the fatty foods that we eat everyday. After all, this generation has grown up eating Big Macs and Whoppers.
