Today is World Cancer Day

The World Health Organization estimates that 84 million people will die from cancer between 2005 and 2015. As someone who lost his Father to cancer, this is a very sobering number.

Every year on February the 4th, the World Health Organization supports the Union Against Cancer to promote the prevention and cure for cancer.

This year the theme is Cancer can be prevented too. So many different illnesses are treated by prevention and immunizations. Cancer doesn't have a vaccine (someday we hope). But, there are things that you can do with your lifestyle to help greatly reduce your chances of getting cancer.

  • Regular Exercise
  • Healthy Diet
  • Don't use tobacco
  • Limit your alcohol consumption

Bottom line, a healthier lifestyle will greatly reduce your chances of getting cancer. So, today is a great day to evaluate your risks and to start making changes. You can get great information directly from the World Health Organization or by checking with your local centers.
