Eat Better to Reduce Your Cancer Risk
Improving your diet can reduce your overall risk of cancer. Eating foods rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals will help you to manage your weight, boost your immune system and keep your energy levels high. With all of the environmental pollutants we are constantly exposed to, it is up to every person to eat well and live a healthier lifestyle, especially if we want cancer to pass us by.
Limit Processed Foods
Limit the amount of processed foods in the diet. Processed foods contain an excessive amount of additives and preservatives that are hard on the digestive system. Instead of buying readymade foods, prepare your foods from scratch and get rid of all the unnecessary calories and toxins.
Control Your Weight
People who are obese have a higher risk of cancer and other life threatening illnesses. Bringing your weight down to a manageable level gives your body a fighting chance at staying healthy and cancer free. Losing excess pounds allows the body to function more efficiently. That includes flushing away toxins that can increase your risk of cancer.
Exercising regularly improves cardiovascular and pulmonary function. It also burns away calories and helps to rid the body of toxins that become embedded in the muscle tissue. Even if it is only walking for a short time every day, staying active will help you keep your weight down and help keep you motivated.
Include Many Different Fruits and Vegetables
Eat a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables in all different colors. The more diverse the color pattern, the more nutrients you will receive. You will also receive a wider range of nutrients and gain more fiber in the process.
