Reducing Cancer Risk with Diet

Have you noticed my "Blog Roll" on the bottom of my blog? You might like to come back often to keep an eye on it for regularly updated links to various blogs that offer both health advice and recipes for the whole-food plant-based diet (WFPB diet). 

One interesting link that showed up recently was from the American Institute of Cancer Research (AICR) titled "Playing the Odds: What we mean by prevention". Unless you are a very young reader, your life will have been affected by cancer in some way. Perhaps you have had cancer yourself, or members of your family or friends will almost certainly have had cancer. The older we get, the more our lives are unfortunately touched by cancer, and it's not the touch of a warm hug from a loved-one.

The WFPB diet is aimed at prevention of disease in our lives. By adopting the WFPB diet you can basically kiss goodbye to obesity, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and cardiovascular disease (CVD). You will also reduce your risk of many types of cancer, stroke and dementia. What's not to like?!

The American Institute of Cancer Research focuses a lot on nutrition's role in reducing the risk of cancer by monitoring and distilling the results of reliable studies that involve diet and nutrition's impact on cancer.

AICR has come up with a list of the 10 steps you can take to reduce your cancer risk. You can find them here at Recommendations for Cancer Prevention.

So ask yourself: If reliable science says that a WFPB diet will mean that you will live a longer and healthier life, why would you not do it? What's it to be for you: the prospect of dying of old age from natural causes, or dying before your time after perhaps decades of poor health? The choice is yours.
