Cancer Prevention

Guest Author - Jenny Vasquez

The benefit of a healthy diet and exercise program is crucial to avoiding many diseases. You can prevent and reduce your risk for many cancers by eating more fruits and vegetables along with an exercise program. This is simple advice that few follow.

It is time for folks to take action to protect their own health and the health of their families. Do not wait until cancer strikes you or a loved one. Commit to a lifestyle change while you still have the chance. Otherwise, you are likely to experience the devastation cancer brings to families.

Many people feel fresh fruits and vegetables are too expensive yet people spend an average of $45 each week just to buy one lunch each day. Most shopping carts are filled with bags of chips, high fat meats, processed foods and sugary cereals. These poor eating habits are passed on to children who will spend a lifetime struggling with extra weight and diseases such as diabetes and cancer.

It is recommended each person eat at least 2-3 servings of fruits and 2-3 servings of vegetables each day. Sadly, the average person may only have 2-3 servings of vegetables in a week.

If you are a parent, a great way to get your children interested and involved in a healthy lifestyle change, is to explain to them you are trying to become healthy and need their help to be successful. You can create a wonderful family project toward a healthy lifestyle. Many children are learning the benefits of a healthy lifestyle through their school programs.

You can discover new recipes together and find wonderful family exercise activities such as hiking, biking or walking. This is a fantastic way to spend quality time with your family and at the same time teach your children how to lead a healthy lifestyle.

By simply incorporating healthy eating and an exercise program, you may prevent cancer and many other debilitating diseases. The added bonus is you will lose weight and feel better. Your quality of life will improve and you will find that you are much happier and your family will be happier.
