Cancer prevention tips

5. Limit the consuming of alcohol

The risk of cancer of the mouth, breast, throat, esophagus, kidney and liver increased with increasing amount of alcohol he consumed. Even moderate drinking (2 drinks per day for men and 1 for women and all persons older than 65 years) carries its own risks. No practice to drink more than three glasses of alcohol per week.

6. Be picky with the food

Dispose of the sausages, bacon and salami from your diet. Do not eat red meat more than 5 times a week in an amount no greater than the palm of your hand. Be careful with the salt. Do not enter more than 6g of salt a day. Research shows that eggs can reduce the risk of breast cancer. One study showed that women who eat eggs 6 times per week reduce the risk of breast cancer by 44%. Fatty foods lead to weight gain, and it affects your health. Therefore, target healthy foods rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber. The more fruits and vegetables you consume, the better.

7. Drink green tea

Just like fruits and vegetables, green tea is a rich source of antioxidants. There is little evidence that consumption of this potent drink protects against several types of cancer, cancer of the stomach, skin, esophagus, prostate and pancreas. Drinking at least one cup of green tea a day lowers the risk of lung cancer by 5 times. Green tea helps to reduce weight and thus can bring you even more protection against cancer. This drink brings health with every sip, so replace the daily dose of coffee with a few cups of green tea.

8. Additional protection

  • Protection from harmful substances. Be careful of exposure to pesticides and other harmful substances such as asbestos and radon.
  • Avoid inhaling exhaust fumes. Exhaust emissions from vehicles increase the risk of lung cancer, and breast cancer. It has been proven that women who live in cities are at greater risk of breast cancer than women who live in rural areas. Whenever you get stuck in the jam, close the window of your car. When you navigate on foot, choose the less busy streets.
  • Reduce stress. When the body is under stress produces hormones that impact adversely on health, and also anxiety can create a bias towards cigarettes or alcohol.
