Thank you for your comments.
Bowel Cancer Australia certainly advocates plant based foods and follows the national healthy eating guidelines for five serves of vegetables and two serves of fruit daily as per National Health and Medical Research Council.
General advice available on the website may not suit all people and is intended as a guide only.
Individual advice may be offered via a personal and specific request and is offered from a personal experience with the disease by our nutritionist, and our caring and helpful Love My Family advocates.
The cause of bowel cancer is multifactorial and whilst diet plays an important part, other factors include: heredity, alcohol intake, fat intake, preserved foods and a sedentary lifestyle.
Advocating high fibre of any kind and plant based diets may cause distressing symptoms for those people who have irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel diseases, obstructive tumours, fissures, and who have undergone surgery and or have a stoma.
To plan healthy vegan diets can be challenging, enlisting the assistance of a nutritionist or dietician is a good starting point for anybody who is learning new eating habits.
