Preventing Cancer

What you can do to reduce your risk

(HealthDayNews) -- Although there is no sure way to prevent cancer, there are certain ways to reduce your risk.

The first way is to stick to a fiber-rich diet, says the Memorial Sloane-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Here are some tips for increasing your fiber intake:

  • Eat whole-grain breads, pastas and cereals.
  • Eat high-fiber breakfast cereals, such as wheat bran and oat bran.
  • Eat lots of fruits and vegetables, and leave the skin on whenever possible.
  • Reduce the amount of meat you eat, and build meals around beans, lentils, peas, grains, and other legumes.
  • Eat brown rice, whole wheat couscous, bulgur, barley, and other grains on a regular basis.
