It's Never Too Late to Lower Your Risk of Cancer

A majority of Americans do not know that aging increases the risk of cancer!

Does your potential cancer risk scare you? You are not alone! A recent survey by the American Institute for Cancer Research has found the majority of Americans over 70 years old do not know that cancer risk increases with age. Also, many older Americans think there is nothing they can do to reduce their risk. These troubling findings have led the AICR to launch a campaign called It's Never Too Late to Lower Your Risk.

PositiveTip: The good news is that even older people can significantly lower their risk of cancer through simple lifestyle changes such as eating smart, moving more, and attaining a healthy weight.
