In this article, I would like to share some of my views on cancer prevention. It is found that many people are ignorant about cancer. So, we discuss some possible causes and how we can decrease our risk.

So, What Are These Unhealthy Lifestyles?
Nowadays, we have many outlets of fast-food and soft drinks at every corner. We take our children to these so-called food joints where they end up having burgers, fries, cold drinks, etc. But what we do not realize is that we are slowly pushing them closer to the 'well of death' which is how I call cancer. In fact, the risk is not only cancer but other diseases as well. But, I am more concerned about cancer, being a specialist in this subject and having seen first-hand the agony of many cancer patients before, during, and after treatment.
Another observation is that the decrease in playground culture has forced our children to stay indoors and play video games thus making them fat and lethargic. We should understand that we are not only making our children cancer-prone but also, will soon destroy the future generations by implanting the carcinogenic genes in our children.
Also, people working in offices, who sit in front of the computer day and night and eat fast-foods are inviting this deadly disease in the years to come.
So, Can We Do Anything About This?
Yes, we can reduce our cancer risk by up to 40 to 50 % by maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Just do the following:
