Default TOP 10 Biggest Ways to Reduce Cancer Risk (Try weightlifting, Eat more Onion and Garlic, Eat your Dinner Early)

As per the World Health Organisation (WHO), 'Cancer is the second leading cause of death globally, and is responsible for an estimated 9.6 million deaths in 2018. Globally, about 1 in 6 deaths is due to cancer.' As known, cancer prevention is largely associated with leading a healthy lifestyle and periodic screening.

While going for check-ups helps in early diagnosis of the disease, healthy habits could possibly avoid the chances of getting cancer. As per another infor by WHO, ‘Around one third of deaths from cancer are due to the 5 leading behavioral and dietary risks: high body mass index, low fruit and vegetable intake, lack of physical activity, tobacco use, and alcohol use.’ Therefore, it is good to know how in small ways you can bringdown the risk of this disease. We tell you how.

Try weightlifting: Though there are countless reasons to hit the gym and do weight training, but a new research published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise suggests that weight lifting may be particularly beneficial for lowering the risk of colon cancer. It has been found that those who lift weight have 25% lower risk of getting colon cancer. It is also said to be beneficial against kidney cancer. It could be because weight lifting helps promoting balance between insulin and glucose. And as we know, high blood sugar is associated with higher risk of colon cancer.

Eat more onion and garlic: Indians cannot live without adding onion and garlic to food. These two ingredients make food better and tastier, but they also have health benefits in preventing cancer. A study done by the University of Buffalo and University of Puerto Rico found that ‘daily consumption of both foods could seriously reduce one's risk for breast cancer—up to 67 percent!’ Knowing that tasty food could also make you prevent a disease like cancer, why not to hold on to this habit?

Have plenty of fluids: Water flushes out toxins from the body and this also goes for cancer causing agents. Drinking water helps you flush these out of your body through urine and reduces the risk of bladder cancer.

Eat your dinner early: Few researches show that people who have at least two hours gap between their dinner and sleep time have 20 per cent lower risk of getting breast and prostate cancer. This happens because undigested food tends to disrupt circadian tendency.

Sun protection is important: Environment aggressors hinder with our physical health. Our atmosphere has become unhealthy and its protecting layers are diminishing. This leaves us exposed to the direct harmful rays of sun. Though India has lesser skin cancer cases because of the melanin present in our skin, it’s always better to be cautious.
