Study shows that at least one-third of all cancer cases are preventable. Tobacco is the single largest preventable cause of cancer in the world today. It causes 70-80% of all lung cancer deaths, and about 20% of all cancer deaths in developing countries, including deaths from cancer of the oral cavity, larynx, esophagus and stomach.
Dietary modification is another important approach to cancer control. There is a link between overweight and obesity to many types of cancer such as esophagus, colorectal, breast, endometrium and kidney.
Diets high in fruits and vegetables may have a protective effect against many cancers. Regular physical activity and the maintenance of a healthy body weight, along with a healthy diet, will considerably reduce cancer risk.
National policies and programs should be implemented to raise awareness and reduce exposure to cancer risk factors, and to ensure that people are provided with the information and support they need to adopt healthy lifestyles.
