Cancer is the nation’s second leading cause of death,
and every day it seems we learn about a new risk factor or something we need to stop doing or avoid to reduce our chances of getting this deadly disease.
But the good news is that eating the right foods can help you protect yourself against cancer.
A diet rich in fiber, vegetables, and fruits, including juices made from 100 percent fruit juice, can make a big difference in your cancer risk. Add 30 minutes of moderate activity five or more days a week and you’ll reduce your cancer risk even more.
According to the WHO, new cancer cases are expected to rise by about 70 percent over the next 15 to 20 years.
A few factors known to increase your risk of cancer include aging, excessive smoking, excessive alcohol intake, excessive exposure to the sun, obesity, exposure to harmful chemicals and secondhand smoke, and genetics.
