Reducing your cancer risk

The risk of many cancers can be reduced by a healthy lifestyle and environment.

You can reduce your risk by:

  • Being Smokefree
  • Eating a diet high in fruit and vegetables and low in saturated fat and sugar
  • Being a healthy weight
  • Being regularly physically active
  • Following lower risk guidelines if you drink alcohol
  • Being SunSmart - avoiding over-exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) from the sun and sun beds
  • Undertaking recommended screening for different cancers.
