Reduced Colon Cancer Risk
The Food and Nutrition Science Department found that dates deal with and improve colon health because their properties promote good bacterial growth. This inhibits the growth of colon cancer cells. Beneficial foods such as dates prevent harmful bacteria for the colon.
In addition to ensuring that the food moves healthily through the digestive system, dates also ensure that the gut itself is healthy and free from harmful bacteria. And when the digestive system and gut are working well, then so is the colon, resulting in a reduced risk of colon cancer.
