Having available fresh fruit at work can increase morale, boost productivity and improve health
Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) March 21, 2013
In observance of Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month now is a great time to reflect on how diet can significantly impact health and that fresh fruit is an essential weapon in helping the fight against cancer. Eating fruit and vegetables throughout the workday provides the necessary nutrients and vitamins to boost the body’s immune system. In a recent article published by the American Cancer Society, the risk of colorectal cancer is reduced by decreasing the amount of red meat consumption and increasing a diet of fresh fruit, vegetables, and whole grains. The article explains that adding exercise and cutting down on processed foods and alcohol also decreases the risk of the disease.
“I certainly encourage a lower-fat diet and maintain a healthy weight with limited saturated fat and high in fruit and vegetables,” states Dr. Charles Reninger, medical oncologist and hematologist in a recent article published on pennlive.com. Reninger adds that obesity may also be a contributing factor to colorectal cancer.
