3 Cancer Prevention Strategies You Can Implement Today

Research shows that what we eat can contribute to 1/3 of all cancers. While the US has spent billions on cancer research, when you combine all the learnings in prevention, they boil down to these three things:

1) Eat more fruits and vegetables: The phytonutrients in veggies are like search and destroy missiles that seek out carcinogens and eradicate them.

2) Eat more seafood: A 2006 Harvard Study showed that people with the highest blood levels of Omega 3’s had a 66% lower risk of developing cancer.

3) Play outside: Exercise releases nitric oxide, a powerful antioxidant that prevents cancer cell growth.

While it’s never too late to make changes in our health, the younger we start, the better. Our parents and grandparents did know best when it comes to cancer prevention. Eat real food and play outside. So go ahead and jump in a few puddles, dance to some funky music, or color outside of the lines. Look for rainbows in the sky and rainbows in our food!
