Cancer Promotion vs Cancer Demotion

It is predicted that 1 in every 3 Americans will be diagnosed with cancer. There are more than 4,700 cases of cancer diagnosed a day, which equates to more than 1 and a half million cases of cancer a year, according to the National Cancer Institute.

There is Good News:

By making better lifestyle choices, we have the potential to prevent up to conservatively, 40% to 80% of cancers, regardless of our genetics!

We make many lifestyle choices every day regarding what we think, what we eat, what or who we listen to and watch, the type of movement we exert for exercise, and the time we go to bed or wake up just to name a few.

Let me ask you a question..
Are you being intentional about the higher priority choices you are making ?

Are you more driven  to make these choices by your habits, convenience, or maybe making them due to a shortage on time?.

Or do you act out of how you are feeling at the moment?

Cancer Promotion can be defined as “an activity that supports or provides active encouragement for the furtherance of a cause , venture or aim.”
