Some starches may prevent colon cancer

doctor-clipboardCertain starches do work at eliminating pre-cancerous cells and preventing colon cancer.

Resistant starches found in peas, beans, bananas, and cooked and cooled pasta and rice move through the bowel reducing inflammation and eliminating pre-cancerous polyps.

University of Colorado researchers say once starches are heated they lose the power.

Resistant starches also help with weight management which may aid in preventing other obesity related diseases like breast cancer as well.
