Diets That Fight Cancer
Cancer. Itâs the diagnosis everyone dreads. But this is not a story about fear, itâs about hope. Thereâs hope for those diagnosed with cancer, because new techniques, treatments and medicines help people live longer. And although thereâs no guarantee that lifestyle will prevent cancer, how you live, what you eat, and your daily habits can lower your risk for getting many types of cancer, even breast cancer.
Cancer is a disease that may be managed, though not usually completely cured. Although heart disease kills more Americans, cancer is a close second. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) reports that although cancer research has improved the outlook for people already diagnosed with cancer, it remains one of our most âurgent health concerns and the disease many fear most.â More than 1.3 million new cases will be diagnosed this year, and more than a half million people will die from cancer.
