Cancer Recovery 9

 
 

 

Great news – prevention is the best cure for cancer! The latest report is that 24% of all cancers are preventable with a healthy diet and exercise. The stats range much higher for individual cancers. This means that each one of us can do our bit to prevent cancers that would otherwise ruin our lives.

The World Cancer Research Fund/American Institute for Cancer Research has reviewed 7000 studies and concluded that cancer “is mostly preventable”.

This is good news even if you already have cancer, because it means that you can prevent a recurrence of this dreaded disease. I remember after I was diagnosed, I was so worried about recurrence; this is a common fear for many people. They get over the diagnosis and treatment, and then think they have to live the rest of their lives in fear of the cancer coming back.

The report shows us that if we choose to eat a healthy diet and get regular exercise, there’s a good chance we can protect ourselves from another diagnosis of cancer. This certainly sounds like a worthwhile effort to me!
