View Full Version : more meals per day cause colon cancer?

Just read this article on Yahoo. Looks interesting...


It suggest that eating more than 2 or 3 meals a day increase the rate of colon cancer in men.

Anyway, I will continue to eat 6 meals a day. However, this article does make me think about the long term effect on the 6-7 meal a day diet.

Well, I believe if you have enough dietary fiber in your diet, I wouldn't worry about getting colon cancer with eating more than 2 or 3 meals.

Yeah get in your fibre and what I like to do is add flax seeds (no not the oil, the actual seeds) and drink down a couple of deserts spoons in between big protein meals.

This helps speed up bowl movement & prevents your turds being like rocks

Well if I die of colon cancer from eating 5-6 meals a day, at least I'll look good in my casket.

I was diagnosed with colon cancer 4 years ago at age 29. It was genetic as I was a third generation cancer recipient of bad genes. I had surgery and 10 months of chemotherapy. I've been cancer free four years :) Oh btw. chemo and heavy lifting is the best cutting diet you've ever seen. I trained right through my chemo and only stopped for the 6 weeks after surgery. Still, I'd avoid it if you can.

Also, my teacher said if you hold in your crap, you increase the chance of getting colon cancer. Is this true?
