Reducing Your Environmental Cancer Risk

For a quick list of tips on how to reduce your risk of cancer, check out the most recent report by the President's Cancer Panel. Many of the tips are relatively easy (but oftentimes more expensive) such as choosing organically grown food, not using plastics that contain BPA, and filtering your drinking water. Other tips include using a headset with your cell phone, wearing sunblock and having your home tested for radon.
Cancer seems to be coming at us from every angle these days, so the more risks you can reduce or eliminate, the better. Take 3 minutes to read the report and then challenge yourself to make a lifestyle change that will reduce your risk of cancer. Pin It Now!
