Ten Lifestyle Practices that Can Prevent Cancer!
- December 9, 2022
1. Maintain your ideal body weight. Cancers of the uterus, gallbladder, kidney, stomach, breast, and colon have been associated with obesity.
6. If you smoke, STOP. If you are around someone who smokes, get away. People who quit smoking — regardless of age — live longer than those who continue to smoke. Quitting smoking decreases the risk of lung, laryngeal, esophageal, oral, pancreatic, bladder, and cervical cancer. There are over 4,000 chemical compounds and 43 different carcinogenic substances in nicotine. Smoking is the most preventable cause of death in our society.
