10 Causes of Colon Polyps

Sugar Consumption

Sweetened and sugary foods or drinks are also directly associated with colon polyps. Those compounds can increase the levels of glucose in your body, which triggers the development of some colon polyps. That’s why it is advisable to avoid or limit the following foods in your daily meals, including fruit juices, pastries, sugary cereals, ice cream, pies, cakes, cookies, candy, and most sweetened drinks. In case you choose them, small portions on an infrequent basis are better. [2]
