Cancer of the colon or colorectal cancer is on the rise and it doesn’t choose at what population will appear. So the question is what should be done to prevent it. Researchers continue to find more and more evidences and they are presenting the benefits of the vegetarian diet.
Boston, MA, March 5, 2014 – New federal standards launched in 2012 that require schools to offer healthier meals have led to increased fruit and vegetable consumption, according to a new study from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) researchers. The study, the first to examine school food consumption both before and after the standards went into effect, contradicts criticisms that the new standards have increased food waste.
“There is a push from some organizations and lawmakers to weaken the new standards. We hope the findings, which show that students are consuming more fruits and vegetables, will discourage those efforts,” said lead author Juliana Cohen, research fellow in the Department of Nutrition at HSPH.
