As part of Colon Cancer Prevention Month, here is a Healthy NYC tip:

A diet rich in fruits, whole grains and vegetables appears to lower the risk of many cancers, including colon cancer. Vegetables most likely to help prevent colon cancer are:

  • Broccoli
  • Cabbage
  • Cauliflower
  • Kale

A diet rich in produce may be beneficial, in part, because these foods tend to be high in folate, a B vitamin.

Go out and get your vegetables today, but Colon Cancer Screening is an important part of prevention as well.

Call Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams’ office at (718)802-3847 to setup a Colon Cancer Screening appointment, at one of the medical centers listed below. They will work with you to schedule the appointment.
