These are the foods that prevent colon cancer
The colon cancer and other bowel diseases could be treated better-or prevenirse- thanks to a new relationship between inflammation and a common cellular process, according to a study published in the journal "Nature Communications' .
A research, Directed by Ioannis Nezis of the University of Warwick, shows that autophagy, an essential process by which cells break down and recycle harmful or damaged elements within themselves to keep our bodies healthy, provokes, should it be dysfunctional, tissue inflammation. This in turn leaves us susceptible to different diseases, especially in the intestine.
Understanding this link could lead to more effective treatments for intestinal diseases, including colon cancer, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.
In this way, doctors could treat the cause of these diseases by regulating and controlling autophagy, according to the study. In this context, experts point out that certain types of food can help in this process.
Foods such as:
Green peas contain natural compounds that can activate autophagy, helping to prevent inflammation and gut diseases.
