Habits that reduce the genetic risk of cancer

Certain people have a high genetic predisposition to develop some type of cancer. But the lifestyle also has a lot to do with it. Cancer is a disease of genetic origin. Which means that it is caused by changes in the genes that control the way our cells function. Those changes can be acquired during the trajectory of a person. As a result of errors in DNA or exposure to carcinogens that damage it. Such as tobacco, lead, or solar radiation.

Inherited genetic mutations play a major role in about 5-10% of all cancers. But does having a genetic risk imply that the person will necessarily develop cancer? The truth is, no. Can you do anything to reduce the risk? Yes.

 

Key factors

Researchers set about classifying patients into a general lifestyle. From 0 to 1 = unfavorable. 2 to 3 = intermediate. From 4 to 5 = favorable.

Healthy habits such as not drinking or smoking, regular exercise, and a healthy diet are correlated with a lower incidence of cancer. Even in people with a high genetic risk. Almost everyone is susceptible to at least one type of cancer. That is why persistence in a healthy lifestyle is important for everyone. This is when we emphasize the importance of eating well, and being more active. Cancer is erroneously related to getting older, when they do not have any kind of relationship.

All people are prone to developing some type of cancer due to the way they live their lives.
