CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

What you eat could have an impact on a colon cancer recurrence.

Researchers in Boston say if you're a colon cancer survivor and you eat a lot of complex sugars and carbs, you could get the cancer again.

They found those with a high-carb intake had an 80 percent increased risk of getting colon cancer a second time.

The connection was especially strong in patients who are overweight or obese.
