Cancer is one of the most dangerous diseases out there for humankind. If you're interested in preventing or reducing the risk of cancer, take ease in the fact that simple lifestyle changes can make a difference.

Below we have some tips to reduce your cancer risk:

>Eat a diet rich in whole grains, vegetables, fruit and beans: Eat at the slightest 30 grams of fiber a day. Aim for at least five daily portions/servings of veggies and fruit. And again, it’s all about the non-starchy vegetables: green leafy veggies, broccoli, okra, eggplant, carrots, celery, artichokes and the like. Consumption of rich diet in whole grains can reduce your cancer risk.

>Limit consumption of red and processed meat: Keep red meat consumption to no more than three portions per week for a total of 12 to 18 ounces. Eat very little to no processed meat and try getting your protein from whole grains, legumes, poultry, fish, dairy and eggs to avoid any future risk of cancer.

>Limit consumption of sugar-sweetened drinks: Stop drinking soda, as well as sports drinks, energy drinks, sweetened waters, barley water and even coffee- and tea-based drinks that have sugars or sauces added. Stick with water and unsweetened drinks. Bonus benefit: not only will this help you drop weight and avoid many cancers, you’ll have fewer craters.

>Do not use supplements for cancer prevention:  Supplements that smash your micronutrients are not suggested for cancer prevention. If you are otherwise healthy and have access to a regular supply of a variety of foods and drinks, you should be able to get passable nutrition through your meals.

So, keep the above tips in mind to reduce the risk of having cancer.
