Food, especially foods high in pectin (including jellies), carbohydrates, and many types of cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, and others) can increase the risk of colorectal cancer, according to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
The study, led by researchers at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), looked at data from the Nurses’ Health Study (NHS) and the Health Professionals Follow-up Study, two large prospective studies of U.S. adults that followed participants for more than 20 years. The researchers found that people who ate more fruits and vegetables were less likely to develop colon cancer than those who didn’t eat as much fruit or vegetables.
However, the study found no association between fruit and vegetable consumption and colon or rectal cancers, which are the two most common cancers among people over the age of 50.

The average time it takes for an OTC medicine to work its way through the body depends on a number of factors, including the type of medicine, how much you take it, and how often you use it.
For example, some medicines, such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) and naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn) are absorbed more slowly than others, so they take longer to take effect. Some medicines also have a longer half-life, which means that they can take more time for their effects to show up in your blood.
The longer the medicine takes to reach your bloodstream, the longer it will take for it to have an effect on your liver and kidneys.
