Sometimes it can feel like every other person you know is getting cancer—and everyone else is worrying about when they might receive the same dreaded diagnosis. While it's true that more than 10 million Americans are battling some form of the disease, cancer is more preventable than you might think. In fact, 90% to 95% of cancers develop as a result of factors you have control over. Much of it boils down to your diet and exercise habits.
You have the ability to turbocharge your immune system, keep your hormonal mix at healthy levels, and help defend your body's cells from DNA damage so that cancer has far less of a chance. And as an added bonus, following anti-C strategies will also help you maintain an optimal weight and cut your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis. Call it "healthy multitasking."
