Diet and lifestyle play a major part in bowel cancer recovery and also in reducing bowel cancer risk.

"Studies show bowel cancer risk increases by 17% per 100g of red meat consumed per day; and bowel cancer risk increases by 18% per 50g of processed meat consumed per day," Bowel Cancer Australia's Community Engagement Manager Claire Annear said.

For the fourth year in a row, Bowel Cancer Australia is encouraging Australians to take the Meat Free Week challenge.

"Going meat free for seven days is a great way to get Aussies thinking about the amount of meat they eat," Ms Annear said.

Everyone is invited to take the Meat Free Week challenge and discover how easy it is to make little changes that can create a big difference.

Delicious meat-free recipes and the benefits of getting your veg out are just the start.

So challenge yourself, your family, your friends and colleagues to give up meat for seven days.

Sign up for Meat Free Week and raise funds for a great cause!

If you’re not able to participate, but still want to help make real change happen you can make a donation today.

Even if you're already living meat free, there are still plenty of ways you can get involved in Meat Free Week.
