As part of Colon Cancer Prevention Month, here is a Healthy NYC tip:
A diet rich in fruits, whole grains and vegetables appears to lower the risk of many cancers, including colon cancer. Vegetables most likely to help prevent colon cancer are:

Go out and get your vegetables today, but Colon Cancer Screening is an important part of prevention as well.
Call Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams’ office at (718)802-3847 to setup a Colon Cancer Screening appointment, at one of the partnering medical centers in Brooklyn. They will work with you to schedule the appointment.
