Family risk

Be aware of your family history. If there is a history of colorectal cancer in your family discuss it with your family doctor.

Eat a balanced diet

Include at least five portions
of fresh fruit and vegetables a day and drink plenty of fluids particularly water.

Fitness / Weight

Take regular, moderate exercise to help you stay fit and healthy and avoid being overweight.

Most importantly get to know the pattern of your
own intestinal function so that you know what is
normal for you.
