Most cancers in our world pandemic are preventable

 

cancer is preventable

Dr. Brawley executive vice present of the American Cancer Society makes some simple suggestions to decrease your risk for cancer. Mainly don’t smoke and maintain a healthy body weight by restricting caloric intake and exercising regularly. It is now known that obesity is a risk factor for 12 cancers. Dr. Brawley does not mention the role that phytonutrients play in maintaining proper cell signaling to prevent cancer. They also serve as antioxidants to decrease DNA damage and aid in the elimination of carcinogens/xenobiotics/toxins that further disrupt cell function. I can not emphasize enough the importance of eating a nutrient dense diet with plenty of vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. As more research becomes available I hope the American Cancer Society focuses more on where your calories come from and not just how many total you eat.
