The causes of cancer you can control : Cancer Research UK

The latest in studies on how lifestyle choices can reduce the risk of cancer, with the big four behind one-third of cancers being smoking, diet, alcohol and obesity. While no guarantees (when are there ever!), the issue is controlling what one can control to reduce the risk. Great graphic on the risks for each major cancer.

The 14 lifestyle and environmental risk factors listed are:

  • Tobacco
  • Overweight
  • Fruit and vegetables
  • Alcohol
  • Occupation
  • Sunlight and sunbeds
  • Infections
  • Red and processed meat
  • Radiation
  • Fibre
  • Physical activity
  • Not breast feeding
  • Salt
  • Hormone replacement therapy
