This is no different even if we talk about the deadliest diseases like cancer. The good news is that just by altering our lifestyle a little we can dramatically reduce the chances of cancer.

Strategies to decrease the risk of cancer

  1. Filter and drink your tap water. By doing so, you will be reducing your exposure to several carcinogens and hormone-disrupting chemicals
  2. Don’t over fill your vehicle tank. There are chances that fuel might spill in the vapour recovering system increasing the chances of mixing cancer-causing benzene in the air.
  3. Marinate your meat before cooking. Spices like rosemary and thyme can reduce the HCAs in your meat by 87%.
  4. Drink 5 cups of caffeinated coffee a day. Caffeine reduces the risk of oral and throat cancer by 40%. Decaf and tea do not work the same way.
  5. Drink plenty of water. By drinking a lot of water, you can make sure that cancer-causing agents will get flush out in urine.
  6. Have lots of greens. The chlorophyll reduces the risk of colon cancer in women.

  1. Munch on Brazil nuts. It is a great source of selenium, which reduces the risk of bladder cancer in women.
  2. Work out a little. Walking 2 hours every week greatly reduces the risk of cancer.
  3. Avoid dry cleaning. Perc, a solvent, is used in traditional dry cleaning, which can cause liver and kidney cancer.
  4. Keep a check on your breast density.
  5. Limit your cell phone usage. Try to use your mobile only for short calls.
  6. Choose your color wisely. Blue and Red fabric provide greater protection against sun’s UV rays.
  7. Consume clean food. Wash your food thoroughly to avoid intake of any pesticides sprayed on it.
  8. Go for a folic acid check.
  9. Enhance your calcium intake.
  10. Consume whole grains against white bread.
  11. Understand your body signs and be attentive to any sort of pain.
  12. If not necessary, try to avoid scan. CT scans are good, but they expose you to radiations.
  13. Control your weight. You are 20% more at cancer risk if you are overweight.

For sure, a little diet, exercise and avoidance of alcohol and tobacco are your first steps, but recent studies have proved that the small things mentioned above can help you prevent cancer a lot.
