In response to the extreme rise in cancer rates,  has come a willingness by conventional health care to look more closely at the role environment, food choices and exercise plays.  Not surprisingly, research is finally confirming what many of us knew already – that high cancer rates and lack of a healthy lifestyle are indeed related.  So much so that up to 50% of cancer is thought to be preventable with healthier lifestyle choices.

Knowing this, it makes good sense that HBOC syndrome carriers who already have a reduced ability to ward off and fight cancer would benefit the most by ensuring their bodies are as healthy as possible

Lifestyle changes should be considered only in addition to current medical recommendations and not as an alternative.

Simple changes can include walking instead of driving, staying away from fast-food restaurants and  processed foods, and switching out toxic household cleaners for greener versions.   For those wanting to go the full distance changes can include switching to organic food and other products,  vigorous daily exercise and reduction in exposure to the chemicals in the air and water with purifiers.

Caution:  The internet is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to health and wellness but ensure you are only taking advice from reputable sites and get advice from your medical professionals before embarking on a new routine.
