Promoting Cancer Prevention

 

(Ivanhoe Newswire) –There are more than 200 different types of cancer and you can develop cancer in any body organ. There are over 60 different organs in the body where a cancer can develop. Each year, 7.6 million people die from cancer worldwide; many of these deaths can be prevented. Researchers are now promoting things you can do to prevent cancer.
 
Although we cannot change our genetic makeup, by not smoking, eating healthier, reaching and maintaining a healthy weight, and being more physically active, we can all help reduce the risk of cancer or the chance of cancer recurrence. A diet rich in plant sources, offering fiber and lean proteins will always be a better choice than one loaded with fat, sugar and simple carbohydrates.  Exercise is key to avoiding excess weight, which adds to cancer risk over time.  Personal Safety is also important, including avoidance of known toxins (asbestos, secondhand smoke) in the environment and minimizing sun exposure with sunscreen or by covering up.
 
One of the best ways to address cancer is by promoting early detection through regular medical care, including the recommended screenings such as mammography or a prostate exam, to ensure that any concerns are addressed when they are more likely to respond favorably to treatment.
 
“Living a full life with or without cancer starts with taking care of yourself and establishing a relationship with a primary care physician who understand your health history and will monitor your needs throughout life,” Dr. Carreiro Zikria, M.D., Danbury Hospital Department of Medicine, Section of Oncology/Hematology and a physician member of the Western Connecticut Medical Group was quoted saying.
