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.

We all know that eating fruit and vegetables brings a wealth of health benefits. Unfortunately Australians eat under the recommended five serves of vegetables a day and just scrape in on eating two serves of fruit per day. As part of Meat Free Week we encourage you to eat five serves of vegetables daily.

A diet high in vegetables has been linked with lowering the risk of colon cancer at five or more serves per day. Vegetable targets are easy to reach in delicious meat free soups.
