Prevent cancer

Cancer is one of the deadliest chronic diseases known to us. Besides its rampant spread in our society today, there are other factors that have given this disease such a deadly status… Its causes are not always known, its growth within the body is uncertain, treatment is still sometimes more an art form than a science and not to mention survival rates are still unpredictable. When it comes to cancer, all these aspects only go to endorsing the old adage ‘Prevention is better than cure.

It is important that we all understand how to prevent cancer to the best of our abilities and inculcate habits in our day to day lives which support this effort. "Cheating" cancer is all about preventing cancer and if that unfortunately is not possible then detecting it early enough to give your bodies a fighting chance.

In order to “cheat” cancer there are two habits you must cultivate:

  1. Reduce your cancer risk - Develop habits to reduce your chances of getting cancer in the first place
  2. Detect cancer early - Undergo regular cancer screening to detect the disease early in case you ever get it - Chances of survival increase when cancer has not progressed too far

Please remember cancer is a disease best avoided. The physical and emotional trauma that the disease and its treatment cause can be daunting for the best of us. Added to this, the financial strain the treatment puts people through only enhances the ordeal.

So, do your best to “CHEAT” cancer.
