Cancer Prevention Tips – Part 1

Many people believe that cancer cannot be avoided.  They feel it is tied to the environment, genetics or our diets, etc. and cannot be avoided.

However, there’s GOOD NEWS! That’s not necessarily the way it is.

According to the American Cancer Society, engaging in healthier behaviors can prevent half of all cancer deaths!

For the next couple of days, we are going to go over some simple life strategies that will help us avoid cancer, detect it early and, perhaps, avoid it completely:

  • Reduce your cancer risk by changing your diet!  While many of the specifics are not yet known for sure, we know this for certain…research is demonstrating that a plant-based, raw green diet is generally associated with reduced risks for several types of cancers, especially for colon cancer.
  • Do not smoke! Don’t use any tobacco product! We all know it…there is absolutely a link between the use of tobacco and an increased risk for getting many types of cancers. You have heard it before and we will say it again, if you smoke:  S-T-O-P! If you don’t smoke, don’t start. If you’ve tried to quit before, keep trying…sooner or later something will work!
  • Get screened for cancer regularly. Many medical tests can find cancer at a very early stage. In fact, sometimes it can be found even before a growth has turned cancerous. Early detection can greatly increase your chance for a cure and reduce your risk of dying from the disease.
