Bleeding from the upper part of the large intestine is black or dark red blood mixed with the stool.. the end of the large intestine rectalTumor bleeding close to the bleeder produces more red blood..

Regular exercise is important to prevent colon cancer. A meta-analysis of studies found that people who were physically active had a lower risk of colon cancer than those who were less active. 27% decreased. The exact mechanism by which physical activity reduces the risk of colorectal cancer remains unknown.. It is presumed to be caused by shortening of intestinal transit time or hormonal changes..

A healthy diet is also necessary.. Fiber-rich foods shorten intestinal transit time. It reduces the amount of time carcinogens come into contact with the intestinal mucosa.. Red meat increases cancer risk, Reduce intake of animal fats and processed meats such as sausages. Sweet sugar to make it sweet, Reduce the use of disaccharides and polysaccharides(oligosaccharide) recommended to use.
