4 Ways to Decrease Risk of Cancer

4 Ways to Decrease Risk of Death From Cancer

According to the latest research approximately half of all cancer deaths in the USA could be prevented or even stalled from progressing if Americans would do four things in their everyday lives. If these measures were followed it would also reduce the number of new cases of cancer by 40% – 70%!

Making healthy lifestyle changes could cut into the growing epidemic of new cancer diagnoses and deaths every year. This is based on two long running research studies looking at cancer rates and health behaviors. In opposition to other research claiming 80% of cancers may be attributed to factors beyond our control, these studies show that bad behaviors trump bad luck as a cause of cancer.

Research suggests that the best way to fight cancer is by promoting health, and not investing in biomedical research to improve cancer vaccines and therapies.

Ways to decrease your risks:

  1. Quit Smoking: In the US, 1 out of 5 adults has a history of smoking.
  1. Cut back on alcohol consumption: 1 drink per day for women, and 2 drinks per day for men. Binge drinking is never considered a healthy lifestyle choice.
  1. Maintain a healthy weight: 38% of Americans are considered obese (BMI over 30). Many more are close to the cutoff point of having a BMI of 25, which is considered overweight if you exceed it.
  1. Get 150 minutes of exercise every week:5% of adults reported that they did not exercise out of regular job activities in the past month. And only 20% meet the government recommended standard for physical activity.
