Diet and Obesity
Obesity has been shown to be strongly correlated with a number of gastrointestinal diseases. For example, research has demonstrated that obesity increases the risk of colorectal cancer by nearly three times in both men and women. Compelling evidence states that an improved lifestyle, particularly in healthy dietary choices and high levels of exercise, can help prevent obesity and, in turn, the risk of a number of gastrointestinal diseases.
