Did you know that we all have cancerous cells in our body? The only difference between a cancer patient and us is that their cancer cells have grown malignant and part and parcel of that happening is because certain body functions have shut down and our body becomes unable to tackle the cancerous growth.
Studies have shown that there are many areas of our lifestyle we can control to help ourselves and help our body to perform its normal functions and prevent cancer from developing.
One study has shown that drinking up to eight glasses of water a day can halve the risk of bladder cancer. Another study linked the amount of water women drank to their risk of colon cancer where heavy water drinkers reducing their risk by as much as 45 percent. Add a few fresh lemon slices to your water if water is not your kind of drink.
2- Cover up
When it comes to avoiding skin cancer, the best thing to do is to avoid the sun and cover up yourself whenever you can. Avoid fierce rays between 10 am to 2 pm. Do get some sun in the earlier morning when the rays do not burn and damage your skin and help your body to effectively produce some vitamin D.
