Did you know that approximately one-third of cases of the most common cancers in the U.S. could be prevented by eating healthy, being active, and staying lean?
That’s an estimated 374,000 cases of cancer in the United States that would never happen.
Corewood’s 3 Guidelines for Cancer Prevention can help you focus on what’s most important.
- Choose mostly plant foods, limit red meat and avoid processed meat.
- Be physically active every day in any way for 30 minutes or more.
- Aim to be a healthy weight throughout life.
Choose mostly plant foods, limit red meat and avoid processed meat. You already know that limiting high-calorie treats is a good idea. But did you know that if you try to prepare meals focused on vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and beans, you’ll help support your body against cancer?
Be physically active every day in any way for 30 minutes or more. Remember every day – in any way. That means you don’t need a gym membership – you just need to get your heart pumping. Being physically active for a total of at least 30 minutes a day — whether you’re walking, cleaning, dancing, or hiking. Doing these activities can lower your risk for cancer.
