Colorectal cancer in India

Over the past few decades, there has been an increase in the number of Indians suffering from colorectal cancer.

Main reasons for this are

  1. Hectic urban lifestyle Indians have adopted
  2. As a part of this lifestyle more Indians today are eating out and often eating unhealthy food. Foods such as fast foods are high in fat and cause people to become overweight or obese. People who are overweight or obese are far more likely to suffer from colorectal cancer than others
  3. often not getting exercise. Exercise is essential to remain fit and for the body to continue functioning optimally. Today much work is performed inside an office, so people in Indian cities don’t get enough exercise
  4. Eating irregular meals. This means they eat at different times during the day, every day, putting the body’s rhythm out of synchronicity leading them to eat more at odd times and becoming overweight or obese
