Washington, September 25 (ANI): Lifestyle choices do affect the incidence and treatment of cancer, according to a study.

Published in the American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine (AJLM), the study looked at recent research on the five most common forms of cancer-lung, colorectal, breast, prostate and skin-and how some risk factors for these cancers can be lifestyle based and, therefore, controllable through alterations in human behaviour.

"While a universal cure for all types of cancer is still not in the foreseeable future, changes in lifestyle - adhering to a healthy diet, regular exercise, and avoiding smoking and excessive exposure to ultraviolet radiation - can decrease the incidence of cancer," write the authors in the article.

A Webinar based on the article will be moderated by Dr. James M. Rippe, Editor-in-Chief of AJLM, and presented by lead author Clarence H. Brown III, MD, president and CEO of M.D. Anderson Cancer Center Orlando. (ANI)
