Cancer cannot be completely prevented, but there are things you can do to greatly decrease your chances of developing cancer. Here are some changes you can make in your lifestyle in order to lower the risk of getting cancer.
If you are a smoker and you are reading this article to prevent cancer, you are doing so much damage to your body. If you are that concerned about not getting cancer, just quit. You will be better off.
Watch what you breathe. Avoid secondhand smoke. Don’t go to a friend’s house if you know they will be smoking indoors. Instead, socialize with your friend at a public place and ask them to refrain from pumping toxic chemicals into the air while you are around them. Don’t go to casinos. They are a smoker’s paradise.
Take a daily multivitamin. You know your diet is most likely filled with the usually crap that every American eats on a regular basis. You aren’t getting enough vitamins in your diet so take a daily supplement. Drink the recommended eight glasses of water per day. It will help clean the toxins from your body.
Exercise on a regular basis. This means you should get an hour of physical activity 3-4 times a week. You can’t say that those steps you walk around campus to get to class are enough. You can say that you walk at work a lot so that should be enough. You need planned physical activity other than what you normally do.
Use sunscreen and don’t go to a tanning bed. People’s obsession with being orange is going to catch up to them one day. Don’t be one of those people. If you absolutely positively can’t go without changing the color of your skin to look more brown, use fake tanner. Always protect your skin because skin is easily damaged by UV rays.
As I mentioned before, you are probably not eating the right things. Eat more organic foods, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. Cut your fat intake to about 20% of your daily calories. Fat is really bad for you. You are what you eat and if you eat fat, you will be fat.
