It's not uncommon for a person who has cancer to ask themselves if they could have prevented the cancer in the first place. With all the news of methods to reduce your risk, many are left feeling as though they are to blame.
In a recent article, a medical doctor discusses the reasons we should look at our state of health leading up to a cancer diagnosis and attempt to make small changes moving forward. It's not blame, but there's no harm in analyzing what could be made better. She talks about "the sum of small gains" as being our ability to make small changes that add up to much greater gains when put together. From eating your veggies first, to including vegetable soup or juice as part of your daily diet, to increasing your physical activity, every small change will help your overall health including the way you feel day to day.
