Recent research of the American Medical Association Oncology has shown that the best way to prevent cancer is by having a healthy lifestyle.
Thanks to this healthy lifestyle the cancer deaths would drop off by 59 percent for women and 67 percent for men. Plus, it would also decrease the discovery of new types of cancer by 63 percent in men and 41 percent of women.
There are a few steps that you can follow in order to maintain your health in good condition. The first one would be to avoid drinking too much alcohol because alcohol in large quantities can affect your liver and can lead in time to Hepatitis C or even cancer.
Second, you should exercise 75 to 150 minutes weekly and keep your body mass index between 18.5 and 27.5. We all know how important is to stay fit. Well, it turns out that staying fit is also related not only to the exterior but also to our health. If you do enough physical exercises, you will be able to stay away from obesity and the diseases linked to it such as diabetes and cancer.
Around 46,300 white men and 89,500 white women participated in the study, which analyzed the deaths due to carcinoma. Carcinoma includes all types of cancer except lymphatic, brain, skin, hematologic and nonfatal prostate malignancies. In order to avoid any ‘racial distributions,’ the study looked only at Caucasians.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 16.8 of Americans were labeled as smokers in 2014 (people who have smoked at least 100 cigarettes during their lives or everyday smokers). Plus, the American Cancer Society estimates that 595,690 Americans are expected to die because of cancer this year.
However, it was proved that a healthy lifestyle can reduce the risk of many wellness concerns, even memory decline. According to a study from the American Association for Advancement of Science, some researchers support the idea that cancer risk comes from stem cell divisions even if family genetics and environmental factors might be a cause too.
Nevertheless, no one can deny the clear facts that were previously presented. A healthy lifestyle can indeed prevent many types of cancer, and it can bring you many other benefits.
