World Cancer Day 2024: Prevention tips and easy lifestyle changes to fight cancer!

February 05, 2024: World Cancer Day celebrated on February 4, Sunday. This day is celebrated to spread awareness regarding the lethal impact of this disease. People are also made aware of how they can recover from this health issue. 


Cancer is a disease in which some of the body’s cells grow uncontrollably and spread to other parts of the body. These cells may form tumours which are lumps of tissue that can be cancerous or non-cancerous. This problem, however, can be prevented by following a healthy lifestyle and prevention tips.

Healthy Lifestyle

As per the Cancer.Net, some lifestyle changes can help in preventing cancer:

1. Don’t hesitate to take support
Studies have shown that cancer patients with the most social support had better quality of life and lived longer. They should not hesitate to ask for help and join a support group as well.

2. Try to control stress levels
Reducing the stress level can help maintain physical and mental health. Stress can be minimised by using relaxation techniques, such as meditation, yoga, etc.
3. Get enough sleep
Try to get a sleep of 7-8 hours.This improves your health, coping ability, mood, weight, control, memory power, attention span, and other aspects. You should avoid screentime before bed, and avoid stimulants like alcohol, caffeine, etc.

4. Exercise regularly
Exercise during and post the cancer treatment. This can help reduce weight gain and loss of strength. You should develop a safe fitness routine, including aerobic activity etc.

5. Consume healthy diet
A healthy diet can help you manage the cancer side effects, recover quicker, and improve your health as well. It may also lower your future risk of cancer. You should include vegetables in every meal, fibre-rich foods, probiotic and prebiotic foods, less red meat, etc.

How To Prevent Cancer

 1.  Don’t smoke
Not only cancer, smoking can also lead to heart disease and chronic obstructive lung disease.
2.  Exercise regularly
Regular physical activity can ward off the risks of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and other health issues.
3.  Protecting from infections
Infections can also lead to the development of cancers. Therefore, people need to take certain steps for safety like practicing safer sex, not sharing needles, etc.
4.  Get screening tests regularly
Cancer screening tests at regular intervals are also one of the best possible ways to prevent cancer.
