The most deadly types of cancer are lung, stomach, liver, colon and breast cancer, in that order, according to a report by the World Health Organization in the month of July. According to specialists from the WHO to thirty percent of cases could be prevented. However, many factors combine to prevent such prevention. One is the economic factor. Statistics indicate that about eighty per cent of deaths in the past by 2007 the disease occurred in middle-income countries or low, ie, only twenty percent were in first world countries. One reality is that the higher purchasing power have more opportunities to look after food. Of course not only about money, but also from lack of interest or learn to change some eating habits.

An example of this is related to breast cancer and prostate cancer, common diseases in adulthood. While women are well aware of this, men are still not well informed about the risk of prostate cancer. A diet to prevent cancer, decrease the risk of developing these cancers. Several population studies have shown that the incidence of breast cancer and prostate cancer is much lower in nations like Japan, where many products are consumed soy food containing isoflavones and various types of antioxidants that prevent different types of cancer.

Given the above, how well informed are you about this disease? How are your eating habits? Are you willing to make positive changes in your daily routine? In its report, the WHO recommended to prevent excess weight, eat more fruits and vegetables (remember from soy), avoiding the snuff, alcohol, physical activity and reduce our exposure to sunlight. The decision is yours.
