Pri­ori­tise your per­sonal health

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

CAN­CER Coun­cil Queens­land is call­ing on women to pri­ori­tise their per­sonal health, with statis­tics re­veal­ing that thou­sands of fe­male can­cer deaths could be avoided. Smok­ing, sun ex­po­sure, poor diet, al­co­hol, lack of ex­er­cise and be­ing over­weight are all life­style fac­tors that can lead to can­cer di­ag­no­sis and early death. More than 5,000 Aus­tralian fe­male can­cer deaths oc­cur each year as a re­sult of pre­ventable risk fac­tors. Women are en­cour­aged to make a pledge via the Can­cer Coun­cil Queens­land face­book page.
