Diet and exercise

Help reduce your cancer risk

Evidence shows that being overweight, having a poor diet, drinking alcohol and doing little or no exercise all increase your risk of developing certain cancers.

Poor nutrition and lack of physical activity also cause type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, arthritis and falls, accounting for nearly 20% of all disease and injury in Australia.

By maintaining a healthy weight, getting regular exercise and making healthy food choices, you can reduce  your cancer risk.
