We indians are prone to all types of cancers because of our unhealthy lifestyles and the pollution around. But females areat a very high risk for breast and cervical cancer. A little awareness and regular screening can go a long way in preventing cancers. Mainly the important to-dos are - eat a well balanced, healthy diet. Exercise at least for 30 min 3-4 times a week. Know your body and report any abnormal changes to your doctor. Maintain a normal weight ie BMI within 18-25. Avoid stress, maintain a good social circle and most importantly have a regular screening to detect eariest signs of cancer. Once in 10yrs between 20-40yrs, once in 5 yrs between 40-50 and every 2 yrs after that. more
