The cure for some kind of cancer has not been found, so we all have to take care of our health and fight these cancer risks and all diseases.
A large recent review on lifestyle habits and cancer prevention is so important. It is not based on one small media-sensationalized study. Rather, this review has distilled the findings of more than 7,000 studies into one 517-page statement, and it is supported by the top health organizations worldwide and we are talking briefly on five ways to prevent cancer risks.
Regular medical checkup
A lot can be avoided by a simple visit to the hospital. A regular medical checkup can help diagnose cancer at an early stage.
Avoid excessive exposure to the sun
Extreme and cumulative exposure to sun rays is a chief cause of skin cancer. Other less common reasons include repeated X-ray and chemical exposure, and scars from diseases or burns.
The use of sunscreens, sunshades especially against midday sun is important. Clothes with bright colors, and wearing well-covered clothes will also prevent skin cancer risks.
Tobacco has been identified as one of its leading cause across the world. It contains over 50 chemicals that are responsible for different kinds of cancer including, cancer of the mouth, throat, kidney, pancreas, cervix, and rectum.
Hence, a habit of reducing environmental exposure to tobacco and quitting direct intake is necessary to reduce these risks.
Having the right eating habit also plays a major role in preventing these risks. Nutritionists have recommended foods such as whole grains, beans, fish, vegetables, and green tea contain nutrients that help prevent cancer. Also, the consumption of alcohol, processed foods, and junk food may increase the risk of cancer.
Exercising regularly lowers cancer risks as it helps control weight, enhance bowel movement to dispose of substances that may later lead to cancer.
