Here's what you can do
(HealthDay News) -- Multiple studies have shown a correlation between diet and physical activity on your risk of developing cancer.
Here are suggestions from the American Cancer Society:
- Maintain a healthy body weight. Being obese causes the body to produce more estrogen and insulin. These hormones may promote cancer growth.
- Get regular exercise. Daily exercise helps you maintain a healthy weight, improve hormone levels and strengthen your immune system. The American Cancer Society recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity exercise each week.
- Eat lots of plant-based foods. Also, limit how much processed and red meat you eat.
- Limit daily alcohol. Drink no more than one drink for women and two drinks for men each day.
- Quit smoking.
