Cancer has an incubation period, but the incidence increases with age. Generally speaking, among young people under 40 years old, the incidence of cancer is at a low level; after 40 years old, the incidence of cancer begins to rise rapidly, and the incidence of cancer is mainly concentrated in people over 60 years old; the probability of cancer reaches its peak after 80 years old.
Sixty percent of cancers are associated with unhealthy lifestyles. The three major cancer associations in the United States (American Cancer Society, World Cancer Research Foundation, and National Cancer Institute) have summarized the following five important anti-cancer recommendations to minimize the risk of cancer.
Tip 1: Body mass index <25
The American Cancer Society study confirmed that obesity is associated with 13 cancers. Eating more fruits, vegetables, and less meat can reduce the risk of cancer in normal women with a BMI <25 by 20%.
Note: Body mass index (BMI) = Weight in Kilograms / (Height in Meters) x (Height in Meters)
Tip 2: Keep exercising
The latest report on nearly 1.4 million Europeans and Americans published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that moderate exercise such as brisk walking or cycling can help reduce the risk of 13 cancers such as esophageal cancer, liver cancer, and lung cancer. Sticking to exercise at least 3 times a week and at least 30 minutes each time is the basic standard for exercise.
Tip 3: Eat less processed meat
Processed meat is treated with smoked, pickled or chemical means, which tends to enrich carcinogenic factors and increase the risk of cancer. For fresh meat, attention also should be paid to controlling intake. Studies have shown that people who eat more red meat have a 16% increased risk of lung cancer, a 22% increased risk of breast cancer. And the intake of red meat should be controlled within 50 to 75 grams per person per day.
tip 4: Control drinking
The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified alcohol as a Class 1 carcinogen. Drinking more than 5 cups a day has a strong correlation with oral cancer, esophageal cancer, breast cancer, laryngeal cancer, colorectal cancer, liver cancer, stomach cancer, gallbladder cancer, pancreatic cancer, and lung cancer.
Tip 5: Don't eat supplements
Excessive folic acid supplementation increases the risk of prostate cancer and colorectal cancer. Too much supplementation with beta-carotene increases the risk of lung cancer and gastric cancer. Excessive vitamin E can increase the risk of prostate cancer.
All diseases are born in a lack of vitality. To stay away from cancer, improving the body's vitality is the foundation. Ganoderma lucidum, which has more than 2,000 years of medicinal history in China, is the top-grade product for regulating vitality and nourishing life and is also a traditional Chinese medicine widely used in modern oncology.
