Colon cancer breakthrough could lead to prevention - and the foods that can help
Colon cancer, Crohn's, and other diseases of the gut could be better treated - or even prevented - thanks to a new link between inflammation and a common cellular process, established by the University of Warwick. Led by Dr Ioannis Nezis at Warwick's School of Life Sciences, new research demonstrates that autophagy - an essential process whereby cells break down and recycle harmful or damaged elements within themselves to keep our bodies healthy - causes tissue inflammation when dysfunctional, which in turn leaves us susceptible to harmful diseases, particularly in the gut.

HealthWatch: Colonoscopies, Carbs, And A Link Between Tylenol And ADHD
BOSTON (CBS) — It’s generally recommended that people get their first colonoscopy at age 50, but after analyzing data on 6,000 procedures, French researchers say starting screening at age 45 could save lives. U.S. experts say there were some flaws with this study, so right now the American Cancer Society is standing by its recommendations to start screening at age 50 for people at average risk of developing colon cancer. If, however, you have a family history of colon cancer, you may need to be screened sooner. Does Tylenol Increase the Risk of ADHD in Offspring? Researchers in Norway found that pregnant moms w...
