In recognition of Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month it is important to embrace a healthy lifestyle as research is very supportive of the impact of lifestyle, especially diet on colorectal cancer risk. An overwhelming amount of evidence has found a strong connection between red and process meat intake with increasing colorectal cancer risk. There are several possible causes for this risk including that red and processed meats are high in potentially harmful substances such as saturated fat, an overabundance of essential amino acids and other nutrients that promote cell growth, and potentially carcinogenic compounds such as nitrates, heterocyclic aromatic amines (HCA) such as PhIP, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), which are formed during the processing or cooking of meat. Red and processed meat also lacks protective compounds that have been found to have preventative effects on cancer, such as fiber, antioxidants, and phytochemicals (plant chemicals with cancer fighting properties). For this reason it is recommended that people consider decreasing their intake of red and processed meat while increase their intake of plant based foods. Plant based foods such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes, and grains have many protective components as they are rich in fiber, antioxidants, and phytochemicals. See below for a recipe full of fiber, antioxidants, phytochemicals, and plant based protein.

In recognition of American Heart Month it is important to embrace a healthy lifestyle to prevent and manage heart disease. A recent 2014 study in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology of 20,721 men found that those who avoided smoking, had moderate alcohol intake, exercised, had the least amount of belly fat, and consumed the most fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes had an 86 percent lower risk for a heart attack compared to those who did not meet these criteria. A diet of plant-based foods is typically rich in fiber, disease fighting and immune boosting compounds (antioxidants & phytochemicals), and low in cholesterol and saturated fat. It is recommended that people should eat as many plant-based foods (fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, legumes, and whole grains), while limiting animal protein, poultry, dairy, and fish as much as possible. Foods coming from animals/fish typically are rich in cholesterol, saturated fat, and have no fiber.See below for an easy stir fry recipe that is rich in plant-based foods, especially soy. Consuming 25 grams of soy protein per day may reduce risk of coronary heart disease.
