Diet Could Help Prevent 4 in 10 Cancer Cases
According to Cancer Research UK, 1 in 2 people will develop cancer at some point in their lives. Every year, around 360,000 people are diagnosed with the disease. Of all the health conditions that can affect us humans, perhaps cancer is the one that instills the most fear. Hearing the word ‘cancer’ is frightening enough, let alone constantly being told about all the things that can apparently increase our risk of getting cancer.
So in this article, we’re going to talk about some of the foods that can help to prevent or lower our risk of developing cancer. Cancer is a complicated, multi-faceted disease but living a healthy lifestyle, with a good diet, minimal stress and alcohol and getting plenty of restful sleep is our biggest defence against cancer.
Diet is one of the most important factors in minimising our risk, but there is no one food that will guarantee we won’t develop cancer. What we can do however, is eat the foods that are known to have cancer reducing properties. Indeed, experts estimate that around 4 in 10 cancer cases could be prevented, largely through lifestyle changes. So here are twenty foods to eat on a regular basis to help to keep you as healthy as possible.
