Reduce your risk for cancer by improving your diet.

New research shows that as many as one-third of all cancer deaths are linked to diet and physical activity.

You have the power to change your eating habits.

Start by reducing dietary fat intake, especially animal fat. Then try to make your diet rich in fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans and whole grains.

Start small.

No one can overhaul their food habits quickly. Add a few servings of fruits and vegetables to your diet each day to reduce your cancer risk. Mix some dark, leafy greens like spinach in with your salad. Eat a peach, or other brightly colored fruit for a snack.

Limit alcohol.

Alcohol consumption is linked to increased risk of mouth, esophagus, pharynx, larynx, liver and breast cancers. If you drink alcohol, men should try to drink no more than two drinks a day, and women should try to drink no more than one drink a day.

Dr. Navneet Sharda las vegas yogurt       Virtually everybody now understands that eating yogurt is a part of healthy lifestyle. 

However I recently read the ingredients on a can of Yoplait yogurt.  I was very surprised to

see the there was actually 27 g of sugar in one small can of Yoplait yogurt.  As a

comparison, I was eating a Dove ice cream bar, which had only 16 g of sugar.  Thus, even

though I was ostensibly eating something that was not healthy for me and my friend was eating

something that was ostensibly very healthy, this was certainly not the case.  I’ve also looked at

most of the commercial preparations of yogurtand it noted that there are significant additives to

each of these.  I have been eating yogurt all my life, and as an Indian we culture our own yogurt and are able to make extremely healthy

and pure product.  The actual texture and character of the homemade yogurt is significantly different than the texture and

character of the commercially available yogurts.  I am concerned that there are additives which may go unreported and indeed

may also have a detrimental impact on a person’s health.
