Top Tips for Living a Cancer Free Life
For many years, receiving a diagnosis of cancer was a virtual death sentence. Although survival rates have improved in the past couple of decades, every year, thousands of people die from some form of cancer; cancers that, more than likely, could have been prevented in the first place.
Propaganda about cancer is simply everywhere: on the internet, television, and in print media. This is because cancer treatment is big business that brings in millions of dollars every year, as well as those funds that ask for your money to “find a cure.” As long as cancer is making people big money, they will never find a cure, only treatments…expensive, ongoing, never-ending treatments.
Although some cancers seem rooted in our genes, most cancers are preventable. Why not take all the steps you can towards keeping your body in the best possible shape and avoid cancer so that you don’t have to worry about whether or not you can survive the treatment?
We have compiled a list of the top 12 ways you can live a healthier life and avoid the most common cancers that are due to lifestyle habits. Keep reading and find out how you can live a cancer free (and disease free) life.
1. Eat a Healthy Diet
Although you hear this all the time, how many people do you know that really try to eat a healthy diet? We all know people like this: They go to the gym in the morning, they have a green smoothie every morning, they carry a stainless steel water bottle with them at all times, then they pick up the kids from school, hit the drive through at the golden arches, and drink half a bottle of wine with dinner. To avoid cancer, you need to eat a truly healthy diet with about 80 percent of it being raw, organic produce. A healthy diet has no room for artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, GMO foods, MSG, trans-fats, or tons of refined sugar. Remove as much processed sugar and processed foods from your diet as you possibly can. Find out easy steps to give up sugar in your diet.
Also, numerous studies have shown a connection between high meat consumption and higher rates of cancer. Processed meats are perhaps the worst offenders since they are loaded with artificial preservatives and colors that are toxic. Eat meat, especially red meat, in moderation and always choose organic, free range meats and eggs.
2. Drink Plenty of Healthy Liquids
This would include plenty of pure, clean water, green juices and smoothies that include organic fruit and clean protein powders, and herbal teas. Green tea, especially, has been linked with lower rates of cancer and other chronic diseases as well. Green tea is anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and increases your metabolism naturally, which can even help you drop a few pounds. There is no room in a healthy diet for soda pop, those artificial fruit flavored drinks, or anything that contains artificial sweeteners.
