They say in life you must face your fears and conquer them. But what if one of your fears is something that could take away your life? Like cancer? Do you have the guts to fight it?

Cancer, like that one friend you hate the most now, is a backstabbing, silent group of diseases characterized by abnormal cell growth. Unfortunately, there is no single cure that can stop the multiplication of cancer cells.

It is not like other illnesses wherein you just need to take a few pills or tablets and you’ll be better after a weeks or less. With cancer, there are a lot of treatments and therapies one needs to undergo in order to recover.

Well, the good news is, you can prevent carcinogenic cells from developing inside your body. There’s no telling if prevention will work 100 percent. But at least you did something, right?

In a recent report by ABC News, it was revealed that almost 50 percent of cancer deaths in the United States are associated with preventable risk factors. Additionally, 42 percent of the overall cancer cases are linked with the same factors that we can actually modify, change, or get rid of. I am talking about the risk factors that have something to do with one’s lifestyle such as dietary choices, smoking, exposure to secondhand smoke, and alcohol intake.

Dietary Choices

Sick or not, we must always be conscious in our choices of food. What we eat is what fuels our cells.

We eat bad, we feed our bodies with “waste” materials that our organs will find hard to flush out. We eat good, we get enough nutrients that keep us going every day.

Maintaining a healthy diet, additionally, pumps up our bodies with sufficient vitamins and minerals that can help fight infections and other ailments, including cancer. And in case you have not heard about it yet, some foods are actually believed to cause cancer. Genetically Modified foods (GMOs), canned goods, hydrogenated oils, and carbonated beverages are leading in the list.
