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.
