Cancer Prevention Series
In this journey of transition to a healthier lifestyle one of the most important steps you can take, if you are a smoker, is to stop smoking…
If you smoke and you are reading this, you probably already know how bad smoking is for your health… There is nothing new I can tell you about it, that will make you quit! It is you who has to make that decision, for whatever reason is powerful enough, and commit to it!
From a cancer perspective, it is the number one risk factor in getting cancer and dying from it! Lung cancer is the number one cause of cancer death among men and women in the United States, and from these deaths about 80 to 90% are due to smoking. Smoking also causes many other types of cancer, including cancer of the throat, mouth, nasal cavity, esophagus, stomach, pancreas, kidney, and cervix, and acute myeloid leukemia.
Second hand smoke exposure will also increase the risk of cancer in your children and pets! So if not for yourself, you may want to quit smoking to benefit your loved ones… And that’s all I’m going to say about smoking.
At Prevention Foods we offer an all natural plant based supplement that can help detoxify your body. So if you decide to quit smoking this would be a great product that you could try to help your body to get rid of the toxins that have been accumulating due to smoke inhalation.
Our next topic in this trip to improve our health involves food. That is our special interest so we will cover a few points in the next few posts. Check our Website or Facebook page for more!
