Life After Cancer
Not smoking. Staying active. Keeping a healthy weight. Eating a well-balanced diet. All these things can prevent certain cancers and make a cancer survivor feel better.
A MISSED OPPORTUNITY
Unfortunately, studies have shown that many cancer survivors are unlikely to exercise, eat right and maintain a healthy weight.
Research in the journal Cancer found that, compared with other cancer survivors, colon and breast cancer survivors were less active. That’s a shame because experts say these survivors could gain the most from activity.
MOVING IN A HEALTHY DIRECTION
Exercise cuts your risk for many diseases besides cancer. To get more active:
•Wear a pedometer to help you count your steps
•Pedal an indoor bike or walk a treadmill while watching TV
Furthermore, a healthy diet low in fat and sodium will help you feel stronger, rebuild your body and cut your risk of getting new cancers.
