What is cancer?
Cancer is the name given to a collection of
related diseases. In all types of cancer, some of the
body’s cells begin to divide without stopping and spread
into surrounding tissues. … As cells become more and
more abnormal, old or damaged cells survive when they
should die, and new cells form when they are not
needed.

HOW TO PREVENT CANCER (TIPS) 2

Eat a healthy diet
Although making healthy selections at the grocery store and at mealtime can’t guarantee cancer prevention, it might help reduce your risk. Consider these guidelines:

Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables:

Base your diet on fruits, vegetables and other foods from plant sources — such as whole grains and beans.

Avoid obesity:
Eat lighter and leaner by choosing fewer high-calorie foods, including refined sugars and fat from animal sources.

If you choose to drink alcohol, drink responsibly and in moderation. 
The risk of various types of cancer — including cancer of the breast, colon, lung, kidney and liver — increases with the amount of alcohol you drink and the length of time you’ve been drinking regularly.
Limit processed meats. A report from the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the cancer agency of the World Health Organization, concluded that eating large amounts of processed meat can slightly increase the risk of certain types of cancer.

Protect yourself from the sun
Skin cancer is one of the most common kinds of cancer — and one of the most preventable. Try these tips:
Avoid midday sun. Stay out of the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when the sun’s rays are strongest.
Stay in the shade. When you’re outdoors, stay in the shade as much as possible. Sunglasses and a broad-brimmed hat help, too.
Cover exposed areas. Wear tightly woven, loosefitting clothing that covers as much of your skin as possible. Opt for bright or dark colors, which reflect more ultraviolet radiation than pastels or bleached cotton.
Don’t skimp on sunscreen. Use generous amounts of sunscreen when you’re outdoors, and reapply often.
Avoid tanning beds and sunlamps. These are just as damaging as natural sunlight.
