Healthy Lifestyle Key to Less Cancer

New research from the Karolinska Institute shows that the proper diet and lifestyle can reduce the risk of cancer by between 30 and 90 percent.

In her doctoral dissertation, Sussana Larsson bases her conclusions on two Swedish studies, one covering a group of 45,000 men, the other a mammography study involving 61,000 women.

She says the risk of tumors is reduced by eating less red and cured meat, and sugar and soft drinks, along with eating more fruit, vegetables, and full corn products, and regular exercise and no smoking.
