Whether you are an individual interested in staying healthy or an organization that can impact the health of a larger community, we have put together some guidelines for reducing cancer risk.

Don’t use tobacco.
Eat a healthy diet with lots of fruits and vegetables, and drink alcohol in moderation.
Maintain a healthy weight and be physically active. Include at least 30 minutes of physical activity in your daily routine. If you can do more, even better.
Protect yourself from the sun.
Get immunized.
Test your home for radon.
Get regular medical care. Talk with your healthcare provider about your cancer risk and when to begin screening for cancer.
