Good Practices to reduce the risk of cancer
Often time, cancer is not a chosen topic of discussion but it is linked to critical illness, loss of life and even depression. In Malaysia, cancers continue to be among the top 10 leading causes of death among medical certified deaths based on the National Morbidity and mortality.
It is time to stop looking at Cancer as a taboo and start creating a conversation about it. Did you know there are ways to reduce the risks of developing the disease?
How we can start:
- Do regular daily exercise
- Reduce intake of high-fat and high-sugar diet
- Refrain from tobacco products
- Switching to more organic food.
Why organic food?
A recent study published in the JAMA Internal Medicine by researchers from Institut National de la Sante et de la Recherche Medicale in France found that people who ate low-to-medium quality diets of organic food were 25% less likely to develop cancer The researchers studied more than 68,000 French adults over 4.5 years. One reason could be because organic products are less likely to contain pesticide residues than conventional foods according to the Agency for Research on Cancer.
For example, many pesticides are endocrine disruptors that mimic the estrogen function that can play a causal role in breast cancer. Therefore, an organic diet may help reduce the risk.
