February is National Cancer Prevention Month
Haven’t made a New Year’s resolution yet? Don’t worry, there is still time. The American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) recommends three steps that will lead you to a healthier lifestyle to reduce your cancer risk, as well as prevent diseases like heart disease and diabetes. And these steps will help you get in shape too!
Tackle all three at once or take one step at a time. As the saying goes, “taking the first step is always the hardest”.
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.
