6. START MOVING

If you are living a sedentary lifestyle and spend too much time lounging around then quit is as soon as possible. Physical exercise is known to fight obesity which is one of the main reasons behind cancer.

Physical exercise helps to regulate hormones such as insulin and estrogen which have been linked to cancer.

Daily aerobic exercise of 30 minutes which gets your heart pumping and makes you sweat can lessen your likelihood of getting cancer.

7. SUNSCREEN IS YOUR FRIEND

Bathing in the sun might give you a healthy glow ostensibly but under the surface UV rays can cause havoc to the skin by activating chemicals in the body that cause cancer. 15 minutes of unprotected sun exposure can bake your skin, so lavishly apply a sunblock before going outdoors.

Choose a broad spectrum sunblock with an SPF of 30 or more. If you sweat or swim reapply the sunscreen to ensure it does not lose efficacy. Also wear a hat and shades to further protect you from sunshine.
