[Best Syndication] Dr. Oz visited on the Oprah TV show and discussed the benefits of eating a high fiber diet. Dr. Oz shared different studies from a new show that he is hosting on the Discovery Channel called, ‘The Truth about Food.’ It is a six part series that looks at how food affects our health.

The surprise that Dr. Oz did today on ‘Oprah’ was to swallow a pill-cam which is a camera that travels through the digestive track and takes pictures all the way down. Dr. Oz showed pictures of his digestive track to the viewers and the audience throughout the show. In order to see the digestive tract walls he did not eat anything for 24 hours. This pillcam Dr. Oz explained has been used by over a half of million people to help diagnose medical problems.

Fruits Can Reduce Signs of Colon Cancer Tumors By 60 Percent – Bright Colored Pigments Provide Best Protection

(Best Syndication) Researchers in Ohio say that the same chemical that gives fruits and vegetables their bright colors can hold the key to preventing cancer. The compounds, called anthocyanins, give the fruits and vegetables that “most red, purple and blue” colors and will also “appreciably slow the growth of colon cancer cells”.

Anthocyanins (from Greek: anthos or flower and kyanos or blue) is a water-soluble vacuolar flavonoid pigment that can appear red to blue, depending on pH. They are found in all tissue of the higher plants and provide the colors to the roots, flowers, stems and fruits. The very same chemicals are used by the plant to attract pollinators, provide protection from the sun and even camouflage. Possibly their most important role is as an antioxidant, protecting the plant from radicals formed by UV sunlight during the metabolic process.

[Best Syndication] Colon cancer patients that ate a diet high in meat, refined carbohydrates, fat, and desserts showed an increased risk of cancer coming back and also had higher rates of death compared to those that ate a diet full of fruits, vegetables, poultry, and fish. The study first was published in the August 15th issue of JAMA.

Lifestyle factors have been previous studied on the risk for developing colon cancer. This study focused on recurrence and survival rates due to dietary habits.

Jeffrey A. Meyerhardt, M.D., M.P.H., of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, and colleagues studied 1,009 stage III colon cancer patients that were enrolled in a clinical trial of postoperative chemotherapy along with other treatments.

(Best Syndication) Researchers say that a combination therapy may provide better outcomes for patients with deep, local sarcomas. In addition to the surgical removal of the sarcoma, they found that a combination of chemotherapy and of local, deep hyperthermia therapy has improved survival.

Already this combination has been applied to a large number of patients in advance of surgery. The new study involved 341 high-risk patients with deep, local sarcomas. The study was conducted by the National Research Centre for Environment and Health (GSF) in Munich-Neuherberg and the Großhadern Medical Centre of the University of Munich.

(Best Syndication) Researchers in Israel and the United States say that they have determined a gene variation that can predispose a person colon cancer. There is a genetic variation of a single region of human chromosome 8 that can place people at a greater risk for colorectal cancer.

The researchers evaluated thousands of test subjects with and without colon cancer and compared genetic material from both groups. They also evaluated the incidence of colon cancer among the immediate family members of colon cancer patients. The people who carried the specific genetic marker were 23 percent more likely to have colon / bowel cancer than individuals without the marker.
