Pre­ven­tive care

C.A.R.E. - - Cancer -

Stay away from tobacco

There is no safe form of tobacco. If you smoke or chew tobacco, stop! Call the Amer­i­can Can­cer So­ci­ety at 1-800-227-2345 for help, or down­load the free Quit For Life app in Google Play or the iTunes app store.

Reach a healthy weight and keep mov­ing

Be­ing over­weight or obese raises the risk for­many types of can­cer. Eat fresh fruits, veg­eta­bles and min­i­mally pro­cessed foods. Save the sugar and high-fat for an oc­cas­sional treat. Adults should aim for about 2 ½ hours of mod­er­ate ex­er­cise each week, and chil­dren should get an hour ev­ery day. All ages should get stren­u­ous ex­er­cise at least three days a week.

Limit al­co­hol

Men should have nomore than two drinks a day, and women should have nomore than one drink daily. A drink is 12 ounces of regular beer, 5 ounces of wine, or 1 ½ ounces of 80-proof dis­tilled spir­its.
