Cutting The Risk Of Cancer

Posted Nov 19 2009 12:11am

Monitoring your body weight: Obesity or being overweight can increase the risk of postmenopausal breast cancer as well as cancers of the colon, endometrium, esophagus and kidney. There’s evidence that obesity also increases the risk of cancers of the prostate, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, stomach, ovary and cervix. Be physically active: From 45 to 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity a day, on most days of the week, is considered optimal to reduce the risk of breast and colorectal cancers.

Reducing sun exposure: Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun, sunlamps or commercial tanning beds, is the primary cause of skin cancer, the most common of all cancers.
