February is National Cancer Prevention Month!

According to the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) making healthy lifestyle choices can lower your risk of cancer!

“AICR’s Three Guidelines for Cancer Prevention can help you focus on what’s most important.

  1. Choose mostly plant foods, limit red meat and avoid processed meat.
  2. Be physically active every day in any way for 30 minutes or more.
  3. Aim to be a healthy weight throughout life.

Notice anything about them? Like, for example, how closely the advice for cutting cancer risk resembles advice for preventing other chronic diseases like heart disease and diabetes – not to mention for getting in shape?

It’s true: these simple steps offer many different health benefits, and National Cancer Prevention Month is as good a time as any to start putting them into action.”

So keep those New Year’s resolutions and make smart choices for your health.
