Rates Of Bowel Cancer In Young People To Rise....

WHATS IN THE NEWS logo

Bowel Cancer in young people is said to rocket by 38% by 2020 because of two main things, junk food and inactivity. Data shows that more people are eating junk food and not doing enough exercise which then causes the condition to develop quicker.

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF BOWEL CANCER?

It's not known exactly what causes bowel cancer, but there are a number of things that can increase the risk. These include:

Age – almost nine in 10 cases of bowel cancer occur in people aged 60 or over

Diet – a diet high in red or processed meats and low in fibre can increase your risk

Weight – bowel cancer is more common in people who are overweight or obese

Exercise – being inactive increases the risk of getting bowel cancer

Alcohol and smoking – a high alcohol intake and smoking may increase your chances of getting bowel cancer

Family history – having a close relative who developed bowel cancer below 50 years of age puts you at a greater lifetime risk of developing the condition
