As everyone knows, eating spinach can make up iron. However, according to the latest report of the British “Daily Mail”, “Molecular Nutrition and Food Research” published a new study at Oregon State University found that eating spinach can also effectively reduce the risk of bowel cancer.
The new research director Dr. Mans Pallas Lamar said that the new study found that eating spinach can reduce the damage of carcinogens in cooked meat to human cells, reducing the risk of intestinal cancer by half, from 58% to 32. %.
Researchers say spinach contains a very rich beta carotene and folic acid that fight cancer. Of course, vegetables that can prevent cancer are not only spinach, but also green vegetables have the same anti-cancer effect. Green vegetables are rich in vitamin D and K. In addition to antioxidant effects, a large amount of dietary fiber also helps promote gastrointestinal motility and reduce the residence time of carcinogens in the intestine. The researchers also warned that due to the high oxalic acid content in spinach, patients with kidney stones should not be eaten in large quantities. In addition, you should ensure that 5 servings of fruits and vegetables, cooked vegetables and salad dressings every day help prevent bowel cancer.
