Vermont University study concluded that people who exercised regularly lowered their chances for lung cancer by 68% and bowel cancer by 38% compared to people which are less active.

The number of people diagnosed with cancer could be cut in half by 2030. Until then use these tricks to fight off this dangerous disease.

1. Regular Exercise

As we already mentioned, people who regularly exercise reduce their chances of developing lung and bowel cancer drastically compared to people who are not active. Even people who were diagnosed with cancer showed better result by exercising regularly. Cardio workout makes you more resistant to inflammations, it regulates hormone levels and it strengthens your immune system.

2. Stay Away From Fried Food

People who eat fries, fried chicken, fried fish or doughnuts once or more a week, increase their chances of developing prostate cancer by 37%. Oil that’s heated up to high temperatures develops carcinogenic compounds in food.

3. Drink Pomegranate Juice

Researchers from Wisconsin University discovered that pomegranate juice can reduce the growth of lung cancer. Besides that, previous studies revealed that this juice can postpone prostate cancer in mice and that it stabilizes PSA protein levels in men that were treated for cancer. Drink about half of liter of pomegranate juice a day because it’s rich in polyphenols, isoflavones and ellagic acids which, when combined, fight cancer.

4. Stand Up

92000 people develop cancer just because they sit too much, according to American Institute for Cancer Research. Even if you exercise regularly, you are still in danger. Set up your cell phone alarm to remind yourself that you need to stand up for 1-2 minutes each hour. It will help your body reduce the level of molecules that are related to cancer risks.

5. Add Vitamin D To Your Diet

People who implement vitamin D into their diet, lower their cancer risks by 77%.
