Public Health Colon Cancer - Recommendations
Public health colon cancer and recommendations from a public health point of view.Colon cancer is the third most common in men and the second in women worldwide. Thereby, this type of cancer is important from a public health point of view. Scientists point out the link between colorectal cancer and lifestyle. They recommend adopting a healthier lifestyle that includes a healthier diet and physical activities.
We take preventive measures to decrease the risk of hosting cancer. The goal is to lower the number of new cases and also to decrease the number of deaths. All recommendations are based on scientifically proven information and are the results of many years of trials and observations. The guides aim to raise awareness among the population about the risk factors related to cancer and the protective measures we must take. Yet, we cannot avoid all risks related to cancer. Some risks can be avoided and are easy to follow, but others are inherited and cannot be bypassed. For instance, a healthy diet, physical activities, alcohol abuse, and smoking are the choices we make. Whereas, genes we inherit are factors we cannot choose or avoid. However, following the recommendations lower the risk of getting cancer but does not mean you will not be getting the disease.
