While cancer remains, somewhat, a mystery for most people, lifestyle and diet changes can aid in its prevention. The types of food you take, especially, play a key role in helping warding off this terrible malady. Your lifestyle, too, is a rich contributor to cancer prevention. Read on, to know, how you can prevent cancer by your lifestyle and food changes.

Include in your diet plenty of vegetables and fruits

Cruciferous vegetables, like cabbage and broccoli, play a key role in helping prevent most cancers. Be sure you take them raw, though. Red fruits contain chemicals that brim with the Lycopene antioxidant. Which is why it'll help cancer prevention. For this purpose, you might like tomatoes, cherries and strawberries.

Drink plenty of water

Lots of water intake help reduce the risk of bladder cancer - the water dilutes your urine's cancerous agents, consequently, reducing the time period they are in contact with your bladder. According to research, sufficient water intake, also, helps reduce chances of developing colon, tract and breast cancers.

Reduce your sugar intake

Sugar is swiftly absorbed in the blood, thus, raising blood sugar levels, and, consequently, raising insulin levels. It is these high insulin levels that enhance the growth of most cancerous cells - lung, colon, breast and prostate cancer. Moreover, sugar promotes obesity - a cancer risk.

Eat less red meat

Red meat lacks the nutrients and antioxidants that will shield you from cancer. It, also, contains saturated fats that damage your cell membrane making them prone to cancer. So by eating less red meat, you'll reduce the risk of developing prostate and colon cancers.

Include sufficient whole grains in your diet

Three servings of whole grains, a day, is, just, enough to help reduce the risk of colon and rectal cancers.

Maintain, a healthy body, weight and get active

Being overweight is likely to heighten the risk of the following cancer types - breast, colon, stomach, kidney, stomach, esophagus and uterus cancer. But a work out of, at least, 30 minutes a day will, certainly, aid in their prevention.

Protect your skin from the sun's rays

While skin cancer is among the most prevalent cancers, you can have it  prevented by shielding your skin against the sun's ultra violet rays.

Take green tea on a regular basis

Green tea contains antioxidants that help rid the body of free radicals that cause cell mutation. And three cups a day is, just, enough, to reduce the risk of breast cancer by up to 40%.

Reduce the consumption of alcohol

High rates of alcohol consumption, according to research, is associated with high cancer risk. Therefore, women are recommended to consume less than a drink a day, while, men should consume less than 2 drinks a day.

Do not use tobacco

This can help reduce your risk of several cancers - esophagus, mouth, larynx, cervix, pancreas, kidney, bladder and lung cancers.

If possible, use organically grown fruits and vegetables

Most fruits and vegetables that are not organic tend to have thin skin that absorbs pesticides - these pesticides cause cancer.

I hope the above mentioned ways about lifestyle and food will help you in cancer prevention.
