Cancer prevention with good food and exercise

Created on: 8th March 2019

There are many good programs and advice from both the Government and Charities after a person gets cancer, but not allot of information on how to prevent this and other conditions.

Our daily actives, food and what we put into our bodies, have a direct effect on our lives. God does not want us to poison our bodies or our mind, but many Christian do just that. If we are overweight we are many times more likely to get ill that if we are the right weight for our size.

How much do daily habits like diet and exercise affect your risk for cancer? Much more than you might think. Research has shown that poor diet and not being active are 2 key factors that can increase a person’s cancer risk. The good news is that you can do something about this.

Besides quitting smoking, some of the most important things you can do to help reduce your cancer risk are:

  • Get to and stay at a healthy weight throughout life.
  • Be physically active on a regular basis.
  • Make healthy food choices with a focus on plant-based foods.

The evidence for this is strong. The World Cancer Research Fund estimates that about 20% of all cancers diagnosed are related to body fatness, physical inactivity, excess alcohol consumption, and/or poor nutrition, and thus could be prevented

God has given us one mind, body and spirit. What we do with these three areas is up to us, but if we follow Biblical rules for living we can stay away from getting sick.

Look at these areas:

1.      Control your weight

2.      Do some daily exercise

3.      Eat healthy foods

4.      Stop smoking

5.      Drink less alcohol or none at all

Christian’s are called to be different in this world, to be set apart and be holy, therefore let us not engage with Worldly habits but follow Jesus, take up our cross and be His disciples.
