5 Ways To Reduce Your Risk Of Cancer!

There are many factors that can increase the risk of cancer. But is there anything that can prevent the risk of cancer? Recently WHO (World Health Organization) has published one post on its social media to aware people of how to reduce the risk of cancer. In this blog, you will learn 5 ways to reduce the risk of cancer suggested by WHO.

1. Refrain from tobacco use.

The longer you stay away from tobacco, the healthier you get. Commit to quitting today! Quitters are winners!

If you quit it now, see what could be the possible best results your body can have.

  • Your heart rate drops in 20 mins.

  • In 12 hours, the carbon monoxide level drops to normal.

  • In 2 weeks to 3 months, your lung function improves, and your heart attack risk drops.

  • In 1 to 9 months, your coughing and shortness of breath decrease.

  • In 1 year, the risk of coronary artery disease becomes half compared to smokers.

  • In the next 5 years, the risk of stroke will reduce.

  • In 10 years, the risk of cancer death is about half that of smokers.

  • In 15 years, the risk of coronary heart disease is back to that of non-smokers.

2. Maintain a healthy weight.

Being at a healthy weight can help you prevent and control many diseases and conditions and improve your overall health. Being overweight or obese increases your risk of serious health problems, including heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, gallstones, breathing difficulties, and certain cancers. Maintaining a healthy weight is vital to reducing the risk of developing these problems. You will also feel better and have more energy.

Improve your health and nutrition with a healthy diet. As per WHO, a healthy diet protects you against many chronic non-communicable diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.

What is a healthy weight? If your BMI is 18.5 to <25, you fall under the category of the healthy weight range.

BMI is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. An elevated BMI indicates a high level of body fat.

Your BMI falls within the underweight range if it is less than 18.5.

The BMI range of 18.5 to 25 represents a healthy weight range.

You are overweight if your BMI is between 25 and 30.

A BMI of 30.0 or higher is considered overweight or obese.

Obesity is often broken down into categories:

Class 1: BMI of 30 to < 35

Class 2: BMI of 35 to < 40

Class 3: BMI of 40 or higher. Class 3 obesity is sometimes categorized as “severe” obesity.

BMI can be brought under the healthy range by regular exercise and a healthy diet.

3. Limit alcohol consumption.

Drinking excessive amounts of alcohol can lead to chronic diseases and other serious problems, including:

  • Hypertension, heart disease, stroke, liver disease, and digestive issues.

  • Breast, mouth, throat, esophagus, voice box, liver, colon, and rectum cancer.

  • A weakened immune system increases the likelihood of getting sick.

  • Poor school performance and learning problems, such as dementia.

  • Mental health issues, such as depression and anxiety.

  • Social problems like family issues, job-related issues, and unemployment.

  • An alcohol use disorder or alcohol dependence.

If drinking alcohol is not contraindicated for any other reason,

  • Drinking more than one drink a day is not recommended for women.

  • Drinking more than two drinks a day is not recommended for men.

One drink is considered

Five ounces of wine (140 ml - wine contains no carbs)

A 12-ounce (330 ml) beer (the beer has 13 grams of carbs)

1 ½ ounce (40 ml) of hard liquor (no carbs)

4. Eat more fruits and vegetables.

As a result, eating vegetables and fruits regularly can lower blood pressure, reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke, prevent certain types of cancer, lower your risk of breathing problems and digestive problems, and regulate your blood sugar, which helps control your appetite.

5. Exercise regularly.

Maintaining a healthy weight can help you keep away from many serious illnesses, including cancer.

Do you want to lose or maintain a healthy weight? Diet and physical activity are essential for achieving and maintaining a healthy body weight. If you consume more calories through eating and drinking than you burn, including calories you burn through physical activity, you will gain weight. Calorie balance is essential. Physical activity levels vary significantly between people when it comes to weight management. It may be necessary for you to be more active than others in order to reach or maintain a healthy weight.

Keep your weight in check by performing a moderate-intensity aerobic activity for 150 minutes a week (for example, 30 minutes a day, 5 times a week). Over time, physical activity can help you maintain your weight. It's not clear what level of physical activity is necessary to do this since it varies so widely between people. Keeping your weight may require more than 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity a week.

Unless you also adjust your diet and reduce your calorie intake, you will need a high level of physical activity to lose weight and keep it off. A healthy diet and regular physical activity are required to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

Regular exercise will strengthen your muscles and boost your endurance. It helps your cardiovascular system work more efficiently by supplying oxygen and nutrients to your tissues. Furthermore, improving your heart and lung health will give you more energy to complete your daily tasks.
