Are we doing enough to reduce our cancer risk?

A recent 'National Cancer Awareness Survey', commissioned by the Bayer Consumer Care, has found that most of the Americans consider cancer as their number one health concern. But less than one-third of them attribute cancer risk to their own unhealthy lifestyle behaviors - such as poor nutrition, lack of exercise and weight gain.

Experts stress that a healthy lifestyle can lower the risk of cancer, which includes simple things that everyone can do, such as taking a multivitamin tablet every day. Multivitamins provide the needed vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to boost our health and
it is important to take the right vitamin. Women should take multivitamin tablets that includes vitamin D to support breast health, while men should take multivitamin tablets that includes lycopene and selenium to promote prostate health.

This video talks more about this survey and what common people should do to lower their risk of cancer.
