Do you want 14 more years of life?

Friday, December 3rd, 2010

Hi All,

I was recently reading a piece of research from a leading cancer research charity, Cancer Research UK.

It suggested that you can massively reduce your cancer risk and add 14 happy healthy years to your life by doing four simple things. So I am sure that you are interested in what they are:-

1. Don’t Smoke – No surprises there then?

2. Drink Sensibly – current reccommendations are that you avoid binge drinking and stick to 2-3 units a day for a female and 3-4 units a day for a male.

3. Eat 5-a-day – this is really a minimum, here in the UK we use the 5 a day as a target when we should be looking to have a intake of closer to 9 portions per day! So eat as much as you can.

4. Engage in regular physical activity – as little as 30 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity 5 tmes per week can have a massive health effect not only in reducing cancer risk but also heart disease risk and type 2 diabetes risk.

All you need to do is avoid toxins, eat well and move! All the things that your body is designed to do.

Until next time,

Tom
