The Cancer Epidemic
Cancer has a major impact on the United States as well as across the world, including holding the title as a leading cause of death worldwide.
In the United States alone, it is estimated that there will be 1,735,350 new cancer cases and 609,640 deaths from cancer this year. That translates to:
144,610 new cases and 50,800 deaths each month
4,750 new cases and 1,670 deaths each day
3 new cases and 1 death each minute
According to the CDC, the following lifestyle changes significantly lowers cancer risk and premature death:
Eating A Healthy Diet
Maintaining A Healthy Weight
Limiting (if not, stopping altogether) Alcohol Consumption
Engaging in Regular Physical Activity
Limiting Unprotected Exposure to the Sun
With scientific evidence connecting lifestyle and environmental factors with cancer risk, we should not be comfortable accepting the ever-growing cancer prevalence in today’s world!
Fortunately, there are many functional medicine practitioners speaking out on this issue and instilling hope that with adjustments in our habits and attitude, we can ensure that we will not be apart of this unacceptable trend.
