If everyone adopted four healthy lifestyle behaviors, half all all cancers could be prevented.

A recent study published in JAMA Oncology, suggests that roughly half of all cancer deaths and diagnoses in the U.S. could be prevented by adopting four healthy lifestyle attributes:

 

  1. Quit Smoking
  2. Maintain a healthful weight
  3. Watch your alcohol intake
  4. Exercise 150 minutes or more per week

 

The results suggest that the most effective way to fight cancer is through healthful habits.
