4th of February is marked as world cancer day, to spread awareness about the disease.
We are sorry to inform you that you have been diagnosed with “CANCER” the moment the word is uttered it sends chill down the spine, the mind gets gripped with all sorts of negative thoughts and you get the feeling that your world can end at any moment.
Cancer is the “MoGambo” of the disease’s world, when MoGambo becomes happy, it leaves no room for happiness in your life.
There is no one single cause for cancer. Scientists believe that it is the interaction of many factors together that cause cancer. The factors involved may be genetic, environmental, or constitutional characteristics of the individual.
OMG!!!, does that means cancer can strike any person any time, even though the person is a non-smoker, teetotaler, Sattvic Vegetarian?
Well, if you try to google it, the google will reply in affirmation, and if you ask an oncologist, he will definitely say a big YES.
So now what to do???
Well, we have heard an age old saying “Prevention is better than Cure.”
No one can predict the exact outcome of your lifestyle, but a healthy lifestyle can definitely act as a shield against life threating disease like Cancer.
Few habits when practised can go a long way in living healthy life
1. Intermittent fasting – Intermittent fasting is an eating pattern that cycles between periods of fasting and eating. It doesn’t specify which foods you should eat but rather when you should eat them. In this respect, it’s not a diet in the conventional sense but more accurately described as an eating pattern.
2. Eating Consciously – There is no food that can stop cancer in its tracks or bring your risk of developing cancer to zero. Eating healthy food can reduce your risk, but it won’t eliminate it. Focus on plants (veggies, whole grains, nuts, fruit and plant-based protein). Make choices that will help you manage your weight.
3. Avoiding Substance Abuse – Long-term consequences of substance misuse can include an increase in your risk of developing cancer. While addictive substances like alcohol and tobacco are more widely known for their cancer risk, other substances can carry a risk as well. A person’s risk for different types of cancer depends not only on the substances they use, but also the amount they consume, the frequency of their use, their overall health and lifestyle.
