New study finds colorectal cancer rates rising in Gen X and millennials

A recent study by the American Cancer Society found that Colorectal cancer rates rising in Gen X and millennials.

This is an alarming trend and research has shown that one out of two people will get cancer in their lifetime. 

The good news is that many cancers are believed to be lifestyle related, so if you can take control of your lifestyle your risk of those diseases is drastically reduced. 

Epigenetic research shows that 70 - 98% of health conditions are lifestyle related.  

"Dr. Cercek of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center said the increase is not linked to family history, so environmental factors are likely to blame.
