This month Beating Bowel Cancer launch Decembeard – growing a beard to help raise awareness of bowel cancer - one of the most common cancers in both men and women. Here are my suggestions to help beat bowel cancer.

Be careful of B Vitamins

B vitamins are good for health, and folic acid, which is particularly rich in vegetables, helps prevent cells becoming pre-cancerous cells. However there is strong evidence that folic acid supplements taken by someone with colorectal cancer, makes the cancer cells grow faster. For this reason I don’t recommend any supplements providing more than 200mcg of folic acid to anyone ‘at risk’ of colorectal cancer.

There is no evidence that a vegetable diet high in folic acid is bad news though so no need to cut back on those. In fact, a high vegetable diet reduces risk. This may be due to the high fibre content.
