Cancer is the number two cause of death in the United States. A team at Harvard Medical School conducted a long-term study on the health data of about 140,000 health care professionals. Based on the habits reported by the survey subjects, they were either classified as healthy or unhealthy. The conclusion they reached was that about 40% of all cancer cases and half of all cancer deaths were caused by habits. What habits cause cancer?

  • Eating too much bacon and red meat (stomach cancer)
  • Drinking in excess (colon, breast, liver, head and neck cancers)
  • Smoking cigarettes (lung and oropharyngeal cancers)
  • Obesity – Eating too much unhealthy food (stomach, esophageal, colon, pancreatic and other cancers)

According to a 2006 Duke University study, 40% of all daily activities are habits. Your habits determine if you will live a long, healthy life or spend your waning years in and out of a hospital bed. Change your habits and you will change your life.
