A while ago, Dr. Stephen Gilbert of Northumbria University did a research on the activities that increase the risk of cancer. It was shown that by being more physically active, one can reduce the chances of developing breast cancer.

Researches like this, if well informed, can benefit the public by identifying the health risks associated with any kind of fatal disease. It’s the duty of the government to inform the public of health risks, and provide these guidelines to help people make decisions about their own health.

Those who have a family history of cancer are always suggested to take extra care of their health. Most importantly, to focus on the physical activities they do throughout the day. An active lifestyle can prove to be extremely beneficial for those prone to cancer. Moreover, staying physically active not only reduces the Risk of Cancer but also helps us deal with stress, anxiety, and depression.

If you are worried about how to begin the workout, you can make yourself a routine chart mentioning your daily physical activity guidelines. Once you will get a hold of the schedule, you will reduce the chances of developing breast cancer by 30%. While all women engaging in activity have been shown to have improved survival in comparison to those doing nothing, the greatest benefits have been seen in those who increased the amount of activity they did after their diagnosis.

Cancer Treatment

Regular check-ups

A yearly screening is a must for everyone, especially those with a family history of cancer. With a timely detection, these tests can even prevent cancer from developing in the first place. Talk with your doctor about the tests for breast, cervical, colon, lung, and prostate cancers.

Healthy diet

Being overweight or obese is a risk factor for cancer types like  breast, colon, endometrium, kidney, esophagus, and pancreatic cancer. Try avoiding packed, processed and fried food. Instead, opt for raw, wholesome food that has its natural nutrients preserved. For example: fruits, green vegetables, cereals, brown rice, eggs, refined grains, etc.

Physical exercise

Adults should get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity (equal to a brisk walk) or 75 minutes of vigorous activity (makes your heartbeat and breathing faster, and makes you sweat) each week, preferably spread throughout the week. On the other hand, kids should get at least 1 hour physical activity each day.

A regular physical activity lowers the risk of any kind of fatal disease by huge measures.

Lessen the intake of tobacco and alcohol

One in five people in the IS does of tobacco consumption. This boils down to about 480,000 premature deaths annually. About 80% of lung cancer deaths and 30% of all cancer deaths are caused by tobacco use. In addition, excess of alcohol consumption also leads to cancer in breast, mouth, throat, voice box, esophagus, liver, colon and rectal cancer.
