In North America, more than 40% of cancers and cancer deaths from 26 different cancers are associated with lifestyle factors such as excess weight, an unhealthy diet or lack of exercise.
Cancer prevention is associated with:
A study from Stanford showed as people gained six pounds in one month, their bodies suffered unhealthy changes in genes in their cells, types of colon bacteria, inflammation, and heart-attack risk factors. After they lost the added weight, these functions returned to normal.
Lack of moving about, not just lack of exercise, causes a tremendous loss of muscle size and strength. A review of close to 150 studies found that people who have small muscles are at increased risk for developing multiple cancers.
A diet rich in plant-based foods has been linked with reduced risk for certain cancers because it reduces inflammation associated with increased risk for cancer.
Chiropractic care keeps the spine healthy, which then allows the nervous system and immune system to work optimally.
According to the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, chiropractic care as a complimentary health service during cancer treatments can also help with some of the side effects such as nausea, headaches, fatigue and back & neck pain.
You can reduce your risk for many cancers by maintaining a healthy weight, daily exercise, eating lots of vegetables, fruits and other anti-inflammatory foods and regular chiropractic visits.
Make chiropractic a regular health habit for the whole family to ensure your spines and nervous systems are working the best they can.
And that is this week’s Family Health Minute.
