1. Regularly eat garlic
Professor Earl Harrison, who works at the Ohio University Cancer Center, studies and analyzes urine samples from people who eat garlic regularly. He found that adding garlic to the diet could reduce the risk of cancer in the human body. The active ingredient that can prevent cancer in garlic is Allicin. Allicin works well in supporting lipid-lowering, anticoagulant, anti-hypertensive, anti-cancer, anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial.
However, this substance when exposed to high temperatures will be destroyed, so experts recommend that you eat raw garlic and do not over-cook it.
2. Doing housework
"If you spend six hours a day doing housework, gardening or walking, you can reduce the risk of breast cancer in women by 13 percent," says the University of Oxford Cancer Research team.
Cancer risk can be reduced by 8% if these activities are performed regularly 2.5 hours / day.
3. Drink less alcohol
The study conducted on men aged from 45 and older was found that if they drank alcohol or did not drink alcohol, the risk of esophageal cancer would be reduced by 50%.
4. Limit in eating sweets
Sugar is the "favorite food" of cancer, which Japanese scientists have demonstrated in several studies.
Specifically, the cancer cells will retain the sugar that you are absorbed into the body and consume sugars to nourish the harmful cells. Therefore, restricting the consumption of sweets, restricting sugar intake is also a way to prevent cancer effectively.
The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reports that if a person drinks more than two glasses a day, the risk of pancreatic cancer is higher than those who do not up to 90 percent.
5. Exercise daily
Regular exercise helps prevent 3 common types of cancer: uterine cancer, colon cancer and prostate cancer.
Scientists have found that women who exercise regularly for 150 minutes a week have a 34% lower risk of uterine cancer than those who do not.
According to a study published in the British Medical Journal, the risk of colon cancer is reduced by exercising 30 minutes a day. For men who have regular exercise habits, the risk of developing prostate cancer and dying from the disease is also lower than those who do not exercise.
