Now in the world there are nearly 14 million cases of disease a year. If in a family someone was ill with cancer, then other family members the likelihood of cancer is increased.
However, not all bad, you can take yourself to minimize the risk of developing cancer. Let's see how to do it.
1. To train and to sweat.
As reported by the American magazine "Men's Health", a study conducted at the University of Vermont confirmed that men who exercise, the risk of developing lung cancer is reduced by 68 percent and colon cancer by 38 percent. Of course, in comparison with those men, physical activity is limited only to the buttons on the TV remote control.

If you value your health, forget about fried food. Even if you don't eat fried often enough have these dishes only once a week to increase the risk, for example, prostate cancer by 37 percent. And although women have no prostate, the risk of cancer associated with the consumption of fried foods cooked in vegetable oils that hot contain a large number of carcinogenic substances applies to all.
Moreover, such dishes as fried eggs with bacon or bacon by themselves harmful. This also applies to hamburgers, French fries and other fast food. The high fat content in the menu, according to research by Italian scientists, increases the risk of cancer by 20 percent.
The popular Atkins diet — low carb and high fat, carries with it the risk of developing breast cancer. Scientists from the "National Tumour Institute" in Milan believe that the risk increases by 28 percent. A study by British researchers showed that high intake of saturated fats is associated with an increased risk of developing colon cancer.
3. There are grenades.
Scientists are still exploring the beneficial properties of the pomegranate, and the fruit does not cease to surprise them. Recently, scientists from the University of Wisconsin found that pomegranate juice may slow the growth of cancer cells in the lungs. And studies in mice confirmed that the substances contained in pomegranate juice help the body fight prostate cancer. What is the matter? First and foremost, it is the polyphenols and isoflavones.
4. Examination and life.
"It is estimated that every second case of cancer can be cured by early diagnosis," says Dr. Chris Wild, who expert and Director of the International Agency for research on cancer (IARC). It is therefore very important to undergo regular examination by a doctor.
Not if you sat in front of the TV or monitor? As soon as you finish reading this article, get up and go for a walk or a jog. Research American Institute for cancer research, conducted among American patients showed that physical inactivity is annually responsible for over 90 000 cases of cancer.
6. Love fruits and berries.
Start your day with fresh fruit or berries. This is a really good idea, because they are rich in antioxidants — substances that fight free radicals and protect our body from the formation of cancer cells.
7. To resolve snoring (of course, if you snore).
Even snoring is associated with an increased risk of cancer. How, you ask? Snoring reduces the oxygen level in the body and this leads to the fact that initially harmless tumors begin to grow in the body and become cancerous. If you snore, go to the doctor. Take care not only about their own health, but also peaceful sleep of your household.
8. Sunbathe wisely

Instead of nutritional SUPPLEMENTS in the summer you can use a natural source of vitamin D is sunlight. However, during a Sunny day, be aware of special protective creams with filters that protect your skin from skin cancer.
Scientists from Harvard University recommend daily to eat three Brazil nuts, which provide daily the body's need for selenium. Selenium is the most effective natural "weapons" in the fight against cancer.
Several scientific studies have shown the effectiveness of selenium in preventing the development of a number of cancers such as cancer of the breast, esophagus, stomach, prostate, bladder, and liver. Selenium is contained not only in Brazil but also in other nuts (most importantly, that they were not fried and not salted) and sunflower seeds and pumpkin.

Include in your diet foods rich in fiber: bran, cereals, brown rice, whole wheat bread, fruits (currants, gooseberries, blackberries, raspberries and dried apricots and dried plums), vegetables (especially Brussels sprouts, beans, white cabbage, kohlrabi, broccoli, green peas).
Fiber removes toxins from our body and that is confirmed by the research results, published in the journal "Clinical Nutrition", reduces the risk of developing kidney cancer.
