Colon Cancer

What Causes Colon Cancer?

In order to deal properly with colon cancer we need to understand and — if possible — remove the underlying causes and risk factors.  We need to ask: "What else is going on inside the body that might allow colon cancer to develop?"

Diagnose your symptoms now!
  • understand what's happening to your body
  • see your health summarized and in detail
  • learn what you should be doing right now

Accurate diagnosis of the factors behind colon cancer consists of three steps:

Step 1: List the Possible Causative Factors

Identify all disease conditions, lifestyle choices and environmental risk factors that can lead to colon cancer.  Here are five possibilities:
  • Inadequate Fiber Intake
  • Vitamin D Need
  • High Fat Diet Consequences
  • Low DHEA
  • Bacterial Dysbiosis

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

Identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
slightly oily/sticky stools
dairy product consumption
low fruit/vegetable consumption
breast cancer
past PPI antacid use
basal cell skin cancer
current GI infection/parasite
vegan diet
difficulty losing weight
hair loss on lower legs
fast food consumption
mood swings during menstrual cycle
... and more than 30 others

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of colon cancer:
Cause Probability Status
Low DHEA 97% Confirm
Bacterial Dysbiosis 21% Unlikely
High Fat Diet Consequences 3% Ruled out
Inadequate Fiber Intake 3% Ruled out
Vitamin D Need 0% Ruled out
* This is a simple example to illustrate the process

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

If you indicate cancer, The Analyst™ will ask further questions including this one:
Have you suffered from Colon Cancer?
Possible responses:
→ No / don't know
→ Yes but now resolved for over 5 years
→ Yes but now resolved for under 5 years
→ Current problem but containable
→ Current problem and aggressive/spreading
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either history of colon cancer or colon cancer, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as:
Bacterial Dysbiosis

A putrefaction dysbiosis is accompanied by an increase in fecal concentrations of various bacterial enzymes which metabolize bile acids to tumor promoters.

Effects of a High Fat Diet

A connection between high fat consumption and breast and colon cancer (two of the most deadly forms of the disease) has appeared in many studies.

Inadequate Fiber Intake

Low fiber intakes have been strongly linked to an increased risk for developing colon cancer.
