Three Helpful Tips on Staying Cancer-Free

Despite the fact that someone has yet to come up with an exact cancer-prevention method all of us can use, there are three measures we can undertake to help us steer clear of the big “C.” They are as follows:

* Ditch the smoking habit for good.

Accordingly, kicking the smoking habit reduces your cancer risk tremendously. The cigarette alone has been attributed to a variety of cancers, namely; lung, esophagus, mouth, throat, cervix, larynx, kidney, bladder, stomach, and pancreas.

* Go easy on the booze.

There is a very good reason why they always advise drinkers to moderate their booze intake. Excessive alcohol consumption has been linked to a great number of breast cancer cases as well as cancers of the esophagus, liver, mouth, and lungs.

* Be wary of your sun exposure.

For all its life giving components, the sun could also pose serious cancer risks if you are not careful. Both kinds of its ultraviolet rays (UVA and UVB) have been ascertained to damage the skin, putting it at risk of acquiring skin problems, early wrinkling, and even skin cancer.
