Reducing risk of Cancer - World Cancer Day

Tips from my GP on reducing risk of cancer. Experts in this circle may know a lot more 🙏🙏

Consume a healthy diet, with an emphasis on nutritious sources
A balanced meal consisting of proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins is essential for the body. Foods rich in fiber like whole grains, greens, nuts and seeds help maintain good gut health. Include omega-3 and monounsaturated fats in your daily diet. Good sources include olive and canola oil, olives, walnuts, chia seeds, flaxseed, and avocado. Coldwater fish, like salmon, trout, and tuna, are good sources of these healthy fats. One should also keep their gut healthy and remove toxins out of the body. This can be done by consuming foods such as papaya which has digestive enzymes in it and having plenty of yogurts every day. A good probiotic supplement may also help along with general increase in fiber intake in the diet. Along with natural sources, one should also incorporate multi-vitamin supplements that can help plug the missing protein intake.

Stay physically active
With most individuals working from home, snacking has been on the rise. It is important to work out for a minimum of 30 to 40 minutes for at least 4-5 times a week. Develop a fitness routine that is suitable for your body type. Find ways to walk during work hours instead of sitting for long hours. Exercising can help reduce fatigue, prevent weight gain, and help combat loss of strength post cancer treatment.

Avoid substance abuse
When one quits smoking, they lower their chances of getting many types of cancer. Smoking makes a person more likely to get cancers of the lung, bladder, kidneys, pancreas, cervix, mouth, esophagus, and throat. Several researches suggest that high alcohol intake is associated with increased risk for kidney, liver, and head and neck cancers. Alcohol intake also is significantly and linearly associated with risk of breast cancer. It is important to reduce alcohol consumption in order to stay fit.

Limit consumption of red meat, especially processed meat
Eating too much red meat increases the risk of colon cancer, while processed meats add to this risk. Avoid prolonged high temperature methods of cooking the red meats, like frying and grilling.

Get regular check-ups and screenings
Most screenings and check-ups are to find cancer early, when it's easier to treat and may even be curable. Early diagnosis of cancer focuses on detecting symptomatic patients as early as possible so they have the best chance for successful treatment. When cancer care is delayed or inaccessible, there is a lower chance of survival, greater problems associated with treatment and higher costs of care. Early diagnosis improves cancer outcomes by providing care at the earliest possible stage and is therefore an important public health strategy in all settings. more  

Very informative. if we keep away from stress, we can be free from lot of health issues. more

Very informative. I had oral cancer (buccal mucosa) even though I had stopped smoking 15 years back. I have been social drinker, could be 3-4 times a month, just a peg or two, or not drinking at all even for 2-3 months. No tobacco, gutka etc. Developed OLP (oral liken planus), ulcers not curing for a long time. I believe, the primary cause of OLP is stress. Though, there are rare cases of OLP getting converted to cancer, but it did happen in my case. Had to undergo surgery and radiation therapy. So, besides the various causes mentioned by you, I feel continuous stress can also lead to or aggravate cancer. more
