Over the past couple of years my family has been paying a lot more attention to what we put in and on our bodies. The first time we really paid attention to the affects of food and cancer (and other health issues) was after watching the documentary Forks Over Knives. It mentioned how some food may prevent the growth of an already existing tumor or prevent one from ever growing in the first place. Well I came across this fact from The Cancer Project and thought I should share:
Of the many diseases that affect people these days, cancer is among the most feared. But despite a wealth of scientific data, most people remain unaware of how they can reduce their risk of developing cancer. According to the National Cancer Institute, as much as 80 percent of all cancers are due to identified factors, and thus are potentially preventable. Thirty percent are due to tobacco use, and as much as 35 percent to 50 percent are due to foods. It is easy to control these and other risk factors.
Things that make you go hmmm.
Know the facts and pass it on😊.
