Sensible ways to keep cancer at bay

By observing better dietary and health habits, you can lower the risk of cancer in your life

The World Health Organization states that tobacco use is the single greatest avoidable risk factor for cancer mortality worldwide, causing lung, stomach, cervix and many more types of cancer. Smokers also risk the lives of those around them through second-hand and third-hand smoke.
Smoking is the single largest cause of lung cancer, responsible for 80-90% of all lung cancer deaths, and linked to cancer of the oral cavity, larynx, oesophagus and stomach. In Hong Kong alone, more than 5,000 men and women are diagnosed with lung cancer each year, and more than 3,800 people die from this form of cancer*. One of the most effective ways to reduce your risk of developing cancer is to quit smoking, or never start.
