Cancer Is Easy To Overcome -- I'll Show You How
All women at least at some point in their lives have heard about the importance of having regular doctor check ups and visits to help prevent a risk for diseases and certain types of cancer, especially women who have been sexually active. Most women in this country have seen those commercials about cervical health and a vaccine to help prevent certain types of cervical cancer. We may have had a friend or loved one who developed the cancer or have read stories online or in magazines. It is important to visit the doctor and continue regular checkups, but it is also important for women to know what they can do to help lower their risk of cervical cancer and to promote good cervical health. One of the things women can do is to get the proper nutrition.
According to Organized Wisdom.com and "Cervical Cancer and Poor Nutrition" not getting the proper nutrition is a risk factor for cervical cancer because this can lower the immune system and put women at risk for infections which may cause cervical cancer or put them at a high risk for it. It is important to eat foods rich in vitamins A, C and E, as well as in folic acid to promote good cervical health. Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables will help to boost the immune system and help fight off infections.
According to the Internet Health Library website and "Cervical Cancer Research: Diet and Lifestyle, says that foods rich in Vitamin E such as: virgin olive oil, cold press sunflower oil, safflower oils, almonds, whole grain cereals, whole meal breads, wheat germ and dark green vegetables may lower the risk of cancer. Also fruit and Vitamin C have been linked to cancer prevention. Also, folic acid helps with the division of the body's cells, growth, the working of the nervous system and production of substances that carry heredity patterns so it is important to eat foods rich in folic acid such as: dark leafy green vegetables, citrus fruits, nuts, whole grains, bran, turnips, potatoes, and fresh orange juice.
Some minerals such as selenium can also help prevent cancer as shown in some research done at the University of California. Selenium works best with Vitamin E to help prevent cancer. Foods low in fat and high in fiber can also help prevent cancer. Finally, certain meats such as red meat and poultry have been linked to cancer in some cases and vegetarian diets may have a reduced cancer risk in some cases.
We all need to go to the doctor to have regular check ups and exams as well as eat balanced meals and exercise regularly for good health. It is especially important though that women make sure to eat a balanced diet rich in these vitamins and minerals as well as visit their doctor for regular check ups to make sure they have and maintain good cervical health and to reduce their risk of diseases or cancer. If women follow these tips as well as exercise daily and consult a doctor about any concerns, they will help their bodies to be healthy and stay healthy long into the future.
