The Ultimate Cancer Fighting Substances
Life often feels as if things are spinning out of control. The mortgage payment is due on Tuesday, the kids need braces, your health insurance premiums are skyrocketing, and the cat has forgotten how to use the litter box. Much more significantly, you feel terrible. This time, you're afraid, it might be more than a simple case of indigestion.
It might be cancer.
No word strikes more fear into our hearts when it comes to medical issues. It's the whole spinning out of control issue. When it comes to cancer, we simply feel we have no control. But, a new research study begs to differ.
As a matter of fact, the study indicates that as many as one-third of all cancers can be prevented by simple lifestyle changes. Eating healthier diets, getting more exercise, and controlling our weight are at the heart of the matter. The study, from the World Cancer Research Fund and the American Institute for Cancer research, found, for example, that 43 percent of colon cancer cases in Britain could be avoided.
The study findings held true across both rich and poor nations. While the effect was greatest in richer nations, the study found that 27 percent of all cancers in China could be avoided.
"On a global level every year, there are millions of cancer cases that could have been prevented and this is why we need to act now before the situation gets even worse,” said the study’s leader, Michael Marmot.
How important is it?
11 million people are diagnosed with cancer each year worldwide. Close to eight million people will die each year as a result of their cancer. Yes, it's hugely important.
So, next time you feel life is spinning out of control, take a look around. There's got to be at least one serving of fruit or vegetables in the house -- see if you can find it.
