James Haskell: the importance of good nutrition for a healthy lifestyle
Bowel Cancer Being an England and Wasps rugby player, James Haskell is no stranger to healthy eating and nutrition. He is interested in the work of Bowel Cancer UK, and the work they do to promote health from the inside out.
Read James Haskell's book "The Lean Gains Bodybuilding Guide".
James said, “I was very shocked when I heard that bowel cancer is the second biggest cancer killer in the UK. Like so many families, we have sadly lost a much-loved, close family member to cancer. Therefore through my mission to help educate people about the importance of good nutrition and regular exercise, I want to help prevent people dying from the disease. That’s why I’m supporting this charity, to raise awareness, support vital research and lifesaving work, to stop bowel cancer.”
“I understand that there are several factors that can increase the risk of bowel cancer and two of the most important are your genes and your lifestyle. We can’t do much about the genes we inherit but we can lower our risk through healthy living.”
James has just published a new book, on lean gains and bodybuilding, and while it is primarily about men and women developing and honing their physique to get fit and in great shape, the book has, at its very core, the message that the right diet and proper nutrition is needed to fuel the body correctly.
James continued, “I’d be the first to admit that understanding the basics of nutrition and then putting them into practice is not the easiest of first steps. However it is a vital cog, so we have worked to create partnerships with specialist nutrition companies to help provide practical solutions.”
James has been supporting Bowel Cancer UK through participation in Decembeard, the annual fundraising, beard-growing challenge in December, as well as ongoing support to raise awareness of the disease.
