Carbohydrate-free food reduces bacteria, which play the role of natural defenders against malignant diseases. That's according to researchers at the Rowett Research Institute in Aberdeen. According to them, there is a link between the consumption of carbohydrates and the production of fatty acid (butyrate) by microorganisms in the intestine, which has a protective effect.
If its level decreases due to improper diet, the amount of these bacteria decreases fourfold. Typically, such a regimen involves targeted restriction of carbohydrates, such as potatoes and bread. Nutritionists advise that the only benefit of such a diet is weight loss. Unfortunately, it would have a significantly more adverse effect in other aspects, such as colorectal cancer.
Reducing the consumption of fruits and vegetables that supply enough fiber affects the function of the gastrointestinal tract. It is no coincidence that such foods are included in the prevention of colon cancer, especially in at-risk patients with a family history of colorectal cancer.
