Health Tip: Diet and Activity May Help Prevent Cancer


HealthDay News
Updated: Sep 4th 2017

(HealthDay News) -- Multiple studies have shown a correlation between diet and physical activity on your risk of developing cancer.

Here are suggestions from the American Cancer Society:

  • Maintain a healthy body weight. Being obese causes the body to produce more estrogen and insulin. These hormones may promote cancer growth.
  • Get regular exercise. Daily exercise helps you maintain a healthy weight, improve hormone levels and strengthen your immune system. The American Cancer Society recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity exercise each week.
  • Eat lots of plant-based foods. Also, limit how much processed and red meat you eat.
  • Limit daily alcohol. Drink no more than one drink for women and two drinks for men each day.
  • Quit smoking.
