Eating one whole wheat sandwich a day cuts your risk of colorectal cancer by 17% (but not if it’s a BLT), study says

Forget an al-desko salad – eating a whole wheat sandwich every day for lunch reduces your risk of colorectal cancer by 17 percent, a new study claims.

In fact, the Harvard researchers say, the more you eat the lower the risk.

The study, a collaboration with the World Cancer Research Fund, is the first to link whole grains with lower cancer risk. 

But they warn you should skip the bacon and opt for a veggie or fish filling instead, since their research also showed processed meats undo all the benefits.
