World Cancer Day

The stats now show that 50% of us will get cancer at some time in our lives.  (Ticked that box.)

We’re living longer and diagnosis is getting better all the time, so although that can sound like a scary statistic more and more people are surviving cancer.  50% will survive ten years or more after their diagnosis.

The word ‘Cancer’ strikes fear into most people who hear it or are given the diagnosis but it’s certainly not the death sentence it once was.  The earlier it’s detected the sooner and the more successfully it can be treated.

There are things you can do to help reduce or delay your risk such as changing your lifestyle – regular exercise, improve your diet – less red meat and processed food, protect your skin in the sun, stop smoking – the biggest preventable cause of cancer.
