The Correct Answer is True.
Colorectal cancer has been linked to the heavy use of alcohol. Alcohol use should be limited to no more than 2 drinks a day for men and 1 drink a day for women.
If you are not physically active, you have a greater chance of developing colorectal cancer. Increasing activity may help reduce your risk.
Long-term smokers are more likely than non-smokers to develop and die from colorectal cancer. If you use any form of tobacco, stop! We can help.
Diet choices can also impact colorectal cancer risk. A diet that’s high in red meats (such as beef, lamb, or liver) and processed meats (hot dogs and some luncheon meats) can increase risk.
Cooking meats at very high temperatures (frying, broiling, or grilling) creates chemicals that might increase cancer risk, too, but it's not clear how much this might contribute to an increase in colorectal cancer risk. Diets high in vegetables, fruits, and whole grains have been linked to a decreased risk of colorectal cancer.
