Rikimaroo wrote:For Colo rectal Cancer, I think its mainly what you eat and how your lifestyle is in regarding movement. If you sit all day and don't get up to allow blood circulation, or eat a lot of red meat, and drink a lot of alcohol I think this contributes more heavily then this study.
Most docs I know have said high consumption, especially grilling open fire of meats increases the carcinogenic activities in the meats. Plus sitting down all day doesn't help either LOL...

It is defintely some mutation or that one month in october of 2016 where I ate sausage every day cause we had like 40 left over from a bday party for my daughter. Who knows though really. I mean that year the the year before 2015 i ate alot of red meat and stuff, and sedentary lifestyle even though I am not fat.
You just never know, I mean I think I was still active enough to not get cancer, but I wonder all the time, why me and how the hell did this happen. I know people who eat way worse then me and big around the waistline and still no issues. I mean not sure what there old age will bring but always wonder you know guys.
We will keep the good fight, I just want to survive for my kids.
I had the flu from about November 2016 to April 2017 and I attribute my cancer to that. Might have been weakened immune system, stomach bug that introduced something bad into my digestive system or the body just not being able to cope with work and illness at the same time. But that seems to be the most obvious trigger to me for me.

Three years ago, I stopped drinking Diet Coke, but before I stopped drinking them, I drank two every day. Maybe that contributed? I drank wine moderately. Drank coffee. I was always told I was at the lowest risk of colon cancer and thought of all the cancers, that was the one I would not get. My mother died at age 43 of a malignant brain tumor. If stress is a contributor, I had a lot of that the past 20 years. Also, I had severe gallstone attacks and subsequent gallbladder surgery one year ago this month and then bile duct surgery last April. Started bleeding in September, so I wonder if the stress and pain from those two surgeries contributed or was it growing for years and had nothing to do with it. Ironically my gallbladder surgery was performed at a Cancer Center and I remember thinking how grateful I was not to be there for cancer, not knowing I would be diagnosed with cancer five months later. It's been 3 months since I had open surgery for colonrectal resection and I'm dealing with part of the incision not healing, deep and open, after spitting a stitch. Keeping it covered with ointment and gauze after two cauterizations. The fun just never ends. Hope we all find out the cause and cure very soon.

Aspartame has been linked with cancers including colon cancer. In fact, I worked in the Regulatory Compliance Department of a bio-engineering company with a woman who used to work at the FDA during the time of its approval. The science showed that it should NOT have been approved but the politics and money behind it pushed it through.
Here's one of many interesting pieces about the history of aspartame: https://www.huffingtonpost.com/robbie-g ... 05581.html
