Did you know that colon cancer is the second most common cause of cancer-related deaths among men and women combined in the United States? While traditionally a disease of older adults, it has crept into younger and younger age groups. There are also racial and ethnic groups that see its devastating consequences at a higher rate.
On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, I talk to Dr. Elizabeth Boham about why we are seeing an increase in colon cancer incidence and mortality in young people. We discuss the risk factors and the importance of screening and early detection. We also talk about how to create a terrain in the body where cancer is less likely to grow through specific diet and lifestyle modifications.

This episode is brought to you by the Pegan Shake.
How you start your morning sets the tone for the day. I’m a huge fan of morning routines, because I think they can transform your ability to focus, sleep well, and get the most out of your day, especially in this busy, modern world.
What I’ve found is that the best way to begin your day is to feed your body the right information or the right nutrients. That’s why Dr. Mark Hyman and I created the Pegan Shake. It’s a nutritionally packed morning blend designed to support healthy blood sugar, energy, and brain power.
It contains some of my most favorite brain boosting foods like MCT and avocado. It also features acacia fiber for healthy gut function and collagen, pumpkin, and pea protein to support muscle synthesis. Check it out at getfarmacy.com/peganshake.
