Live longer and stop sickness through healthy eating and active living.
“Staying physically active, eating plenty of unprocessed foods high in fibre, drinking alcohol within current guidelines, cutting back on red meat (especially processed meat), and keeping body weight in check, can each dramatically cut a person’s risk of being diagnosed with cancer – especially colorectal and breast cancer”.
Tim Crowe, Associate Professor in Nutrition at Deakin University
