May: Cancer Control Month
It is the 2nd leading cause of illness and death in the United States:
1 in 4 deaths.
Cancer strikes about 1 in 3 adults over his or her lifetime.
The good news: lifestyle changes, along with early detection, can prevent nearly 1/2 of all cancer deaths. Your food choices are some of the most important factors under your control that can reduce cancer risk.
Food has a three-way impact on cancer. Eating well can:
- Lower your risk for developing cancer (help prevent).
- Positively influence and support cancer treatment.
- Once treatment is complete, help you live well for years to come.
