Cancer: How To Lower Your Risk

19 May

One in three women.  One in two men.

That’s how many of us can expect to be diagnosed with cancer in our lifetimes. Of course, those are averages. A smoker is 25 times more likely to gt lung cancer than a nonsmoker. Tobacco alone accounts for about a third of all cancer deaths in the United States.

But smoking isn’t the only preventable cause of cancer. Experts estimate that we could dodge up to a third of all cancers by eating healthier, eating less, and moving more.

No one can guarantee that you won’t get cancer. But you can lower your risk.
