Last February, International Cancer Day was commemorated, a date to act in the prevention and control of this disease. We know that efforts to promote preventive awareness is an uninterrupted task, so we follow up on this issue.

We are facing a disease that, according to the International Union for Cancer Control (UICC), kills 7.6 million people a year around the world. In 2019 alone, more than 1.7 million people were diagnosed with cancer in the United States. Figures that give us an overview of the situation, and emphasize the need to seek and implement preventive actions.

There are many factors involved in the development of this disease, from the genetic part, our lifestyle and even the environment, all contribute to increase or decrease the risk of developing cancer. So what can you do? Eating healthy and exercising regularly are the best options for reducing the chances of developing tumors by 40%.

Cancer does not have to be part of our aging or at least for most people. Many types of cancer can be prevented. Screening tests can find breast, cervical, and colon cancers early, when they are easier to treat.

Next, we share 4 basic prevention points:

1- Follow a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, legumes, fiber, and minerals. Moderate the consumption of red meat, opt for fish and chicken. Include soy in your meals, since it is rich in vegetable proteins that can supply, to a certain extent, the consumption of animal fats.

2 - It is of special importance to have regular schedules in the basic corporal functions; Eating and sleeping at the same time always helps to avoid diseases such as colon cancer.

3 - Control your weight. Cancer of the breast, colon, and esophagus are associated with obesity.

4 - Say no to tobacco. This vice is present as a cause in almost all cases of cancer.

Leading a healthy life is the best way to combat it, do not forget to undergo regular medical checkups and do not leave any type of discomfort or change in your body unattended. Beware!
