Cancer Prevention Tips – Part 5

We are continuing to share some great news from the American Cancer Society about preventing 50% of cancer related deaths!

Here are some additional important tips:

Moderate your alcohol consumption, keeping it low…this means no more than 2 drinks per day for guys and only one drink per day for gals. Alcohol use, unfortunately, increases the risk for several cancers including those of the colon, breast, esophagus and pancreas as well as in the neck and head region.

Keep your weight in the normal range for your height:
Try to stay within no more that 10 pounds of what you weighed in your very late teens. The best ways to avoid gaining weight is to increase your activity level, eat a diet high in fiber from green vegetables and low in high-calorie items like refined carbohydrates, sugary drinks and fatty foods.

Remember “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!”
