Healthy living can prevent the causes of cancer.
More than four types of cancers could be avoided simply by bringing some changes in the people’s lifestyle, according to a recently published research report of Cancer Research UK. The report claims that healthier living could have prevented almost 600,000 cancer cases in the UK in the past five years.
Cancer cases are linked to lack of exercise.
The study revealed that thousands of cancer cases were related to lack of exercise. Around10,000 cancers were connected to consuming excess alcohol, lacking of exercise and failing to protect skin from the sun, where a sustaining healthy weight could have prohibited around 88,000 cases of cancers, according to the same study.
Smoking is the biggest factor of cancer deaths.
We all know tobacco is harmful for our health and smoking is a well known cause of cancer. The study showed that smoking was the leading lifestyle feature to cause cancer deaths, only because of smoking more than 314,000 cases of cancer reported in the last five years.
However, it also said that if more people eat a balanced diet, processed salt and meat and lofty in vegetables, fruits and fibre, a further 145,000 cancers might have been prevented.
Professor Max Parkin provided the basis of the report, who is working in the Cancer Research UK based at Queen Mary, University of London. Max Parkin said:
“There’s now little doubt that certain lifestyle choices can have a big impact on cancer risk, with research around the world all pointing to the same key risk factors.
Since, simply some positive changes in your lifestyle can keep you risk free from several types of cancers, so why late to start a healthy lifestyle for 2015. It is a good time to think about taking up some healthy habits and getting a fit life.
