 Study Throws Light On Lifestyle Choices That Influence Cancer Treatment

Recent research has confirmed that lifestyle choices indeed influence the incidence and treatment of cancer.

Published in the American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine (AJLM), the study looked at recent research on the five most common forms of cancer-lung, colorectal, breast, prostate and skin-and how some risk factors for these cancers can be lifestyle based and, therefore, controllable through alterations in human behaviour.

"While a universal cure for all types of cancer is still not in the foreseeable future, changes in lifestyle - adhering to a healthy diet, regular exercise, and avoiding smoking and excessive exposure to ultraviolet radiation - can decrease the incidence of cancer," write the authors in the article.

A Webinar based on the article will be moderated by Dr. James M. Rippe, Editor-in-Chief of AJLM, and presented by lead author Clarence H. Brown III, MD, president and CEO of M.D. Anderson Cancer Center Orlando.
