Eat Right to Fight Cancer

This year, more than 1.6 million men and women will be diagnosed with cancer, but the simple act of eating the right foods can help prevent, or even support your treatment of this devastating disease, according to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. You can help reduce your risk with a few simple lifestyle strategies:

• Maintain a healthy weight to reduce your risk of cancer and other diseases.

• Eat fewer foods that are high in calories and fat and low in nutrients. Foods with added sugars and fats can add weight and leave little room for healthy, cancer-preventing foods.

• Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables that are linked to a lower risk of developing certain cancers.

• Limit alcohol. Evidence suggests all types of alcoholic drinks may increase your risk of a number of cancers, including mouth, throat (pharynx), voice box (larynx), esophageal, liver, breast, colon and rectal.
