What you eat is important for colon health, according to Real Age. The fiber found in apples (pectin) appears to protect your colon from cancer-causing compounds. Choose cloudy over translucent juices because they contain more disease-fighting antioxidants.
Head for Red Delicious bin at your supermarket. Wash them well and don't forget to eat the nutrient-enriched skins.
Other key factors to colon health are:
Get screened for polyps
Load up on whole grains
Drink milk and stay away from sugary drinks
Add sliced onions to your salads
