Cancer-cutting Habits

3 May

A recent study that followed 476,396 women and men found that those who avoided tobacco, limited alcohol, ate a plant-rich diet, maintained a healthy weight, and were physically active cut their overall cancer risk (women by 19% and men by 10%). Both sexes also cut their risk of dying from cancer by about 25%. Healthy habits, researchers found, reduced cancer risk in 14 of 25 cancer sites, including the colon, gallbladder, kidney, and liver.
