Cancer is a class of disease associated with irregular cell growth in the tissue of a specific organ due to the alternation of cell DNA.
At the advanced stage, the cancerous cells can dispatch from the original site to infect other healthy tissue and organs far the way from the colon, leading to secondary metastasis.
The exact causes of colon cancer are unknown. researchers do not know why people with the same health condition, family history, and diet, some are susceptible to the onset of the disease while others do not.
According to the statistic, colorectal cancer(cancer that starts in the colon or rectum is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death in men and women combined in the United States.
Dr. Milly Ryan-Harshman wrote, "Whether red meat is a culprit in causing CRC remains unanswered, although any effect it might have is likely moderate and related to processing or cooking"
And "The effect of dietary fiber on the risk of CRC has also been difficult to determine because fiber intake is generally low. Evidence that folic acid, calcium, and vitamin D reduce the risk of CRC is stronger"
These results strongly suggested that by reducing intake of red meat and processed foods, and increasing intake of nutrients from the fruits and vegetable including folic calcium and vitamin D, the risk of colorectal cancer can be substantially decreased.
However, in the study conducted by the team lead by Dr. Dana-Farber, Cancer Center oncologist Jeffrey Meyerhardt, MD appeared in the Aug. 15 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, the Western diet not only associate to the colon cancer risk but also elevate the risk of recurrent colon cancer in colon cancer patients.
With an aim to find a natural and dietary compound for the treatment of colon cancer, researchers examined the effects of navy beans on mice induced colon cancer.
The study included cooked navy beans (whole beans), the insoluble fraction (bean residue) or soluble fraction of the 60% (vol:vol) ethanol extract of cooked navy beans (bean extract), or a modified AIN-93G diet (16.6% fat including 12.9% lard) as control fed to 160 male obese ob/ob mice after 2 azoxymethane injections.
