We’re pleased to announce AICR’s It’s Never Too Late to Lower Your Risk awareness campaign.
Although you can’t control aging – which is the number one risk factor for cancer – the good news is you can make small, everyday changes to prevent or delay cancer at any age. On our Never Too Late web section, folks age 50 and over will find many ideas, strategies and tips designed specifically to help them take important, but achievable, steps toward a healthier lifestyle.
You will probably begin to feel better as you begin to make diet and physical activity changes, too. Many people report having more energy, sleeping better and managing stress more effectively – a win-win situation as you lower your risk for cancer and other chronic diseases.
But maintaining these changes can be challenging. Support and new ideas are crucial in maintaining your good work or for getting back on track.
This is where you can share your successes and challenges, offer encouragement and connect to others working toward the same goal. Use the comment section below to let us know what you’re doing, how you’re progressing, what the challenges are and how you’re overcoming those obstacles.
