In the United States, men have slightly less than a 1 in 2 lifetime risk of developing cancer; for women, the risk is a little more than 1 in 3. The good news: lifestyle changes, along with early detection, can prevent nearly half of all cancer deaths. Your diet is one of the most important factors under your control that can reduce cancer risk.
Food and Cancer
Food has a three-way impact on cancer. Eating well can:
- Lower your risk for developing cancer.
- Positively influence and support cancer treatment.
- Once treatment is complete, help you live well for years to come.
