Supporting Bowel Cancer Awareness

For the month of June, the Ballarat Surgicentre was proud to participate in the Bowel Cancer Awareness event by promoting healthy eating and swapping to fibre rich foods.

Bowel Cancer is Australia’s second deadliest cancer. The recommendations for Australian adult fibre levels are 25 grams per day for women and 30 grams per day for men.

By eating a combination of wholegrains, beans and legumes, nuts, seeds, fruit and vegetables and avoiding highly processed foods, you can increase your fibre intake.

Staff and patients raised $86.05 by purchasing the $2 Red Apple ribbons on Red Apple Day – June 19.
