Dedicated to empowering everyone across the world to show support and raise a collective voice, 4 February has been declared as World Cancer Day.

While the term cancer prevention is still evolving with so many contradicting reports, it is widely accepted that the chances of developing cancer are affected by the life choices you make.

If you wish to reduce/prevent the risk of cancer, here are a few tips compiled from various sources including the Mayo Clinic Staff;

1. Stay away from tobacco

Smoking is often listed as a major cause of different types of cancer including cancer of the lung, mouth, throat, larynx, pancreas, bladder, cervix and kidney.

Smoking and chewing of tobacco have been linked to cancer of the oral cavity and pancreas. For non-smokers, exposure to secondhand smoke could increase one’s risk of lung cancer.

2. Stick to a healthy diet

Although eating healthy may not guarantee cancer prevention, check these guidelines to reduce your risk.

  • Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.
  • Eat lighter and avoid obesity.
  • Take alcohol only in moderation if you must.
  • Limit processed meats; according to the cancer agency of the World Health Organization, eating large amounts of processed meat can slightly increase the risk of certain types of cancer.

3. Get vaccinated
