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.
