A Purple ‘Plate Trick’ PREVENTS Colon Cancer?!
When it comes to the litany of cancers that are out there, colon cancer is one of the most aggressive – and deadliest – cancers.
In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), colon cancer is now the THIRD leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States!
And the risk of getting colon cancer only INCREASES the older you get…
Routine screenings and checkups are the single best way to detect any issues or abnormalities in your colon that could lead to colon cancer.
But according to new research, you may be able to PREVENT colon cancer by trying this simple ‘purple plate’ trick the next time you sit down for dinner.
Let me explain…
According to an animal study out of Pennsylvania State University, eating PURPLE POTATOES can significantly reduce the risk of colon cancer.
Purple potatoes may not be the common variety of potatoes you usually see at your local grocery store… but studies have found that these potatoes do a lot more than add some color to your plate.
Purple potatoes are rich in phenolic acids and anthocyanins – which are antioxidants that have been linked to having potential anticancer properties.
Researchers discovered that when feeding pigs a diet rich in purple potatoes, they experienced significantly lower levels of an inflammatory marker called interleukin-6 (IL-6).

This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
Are we literally FEEDING cancer cells by putting this one food on our dinner plates?
This is important. THIS one food could be growing cancer cells.
And here’s where it gets interesting… as soon as we STOP eating it, the opposite happens: cancer cells STARVE to death — and die out by the thousands.
Skeptical? See the evidence here.
This is important because studies have found that IL-6 is a pro-inflammatory protein known to increase your risk of colon cancer.
But, the latest study found that IL-6 levels were a whopping 6X LOWER with a diet abundant in purple potatoes.
It should be noted that these findings are based on animal studies, and more studies on purple potatoes and colon cancer risk in humans continues to be done.
However, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t find a place for these bright, vibrant potatoes on your dinner plate!
Purple potatoes can sometimes be hard to find, but if your local grocery store has an organic produce section, chances are they will be there. You can also find them at local farmer’s markets in your area.
Human studies on purple potatoes have found that antioxidants in purple potatoes (phenolic acids and anthocyanins) can help ward off chronic inflammation – which is the root of many diseases.
And when it comes to your colon health, regular screenings and exams (especially if you’re over the age of 50) is the best preventive measure you can take to prevent colon cancer.
But adding some purple potatoes to your plate certainly can’t hurt, either!
