Lowest Colorectal Cancer Risk: Vegetarian Diet Plus Fish
Pescovegetarians at even lower risk in new study than vegans.
Eating a more plant-based diet could reduce your risk of colorectal cancer—and especially so if it includes regular consumption of fish. Surprisingly, the latest findings from the Adventist Health Study-2 report that pescovegetarians—people who are otherwise vegetarians but also eat fish at least once a month—were at the lowest risk of such cancers. Adding fish to a vegetarian diet was associated with less risk than any other type of vegetarian diet, including a vegan regimen.
