Today is the declared as World’s Cancer Day as this year we will focus more on vaccines against viruses that cause cancer. My uncle just diagnosed from his cancer (luckily was early stage) from colon cancer. It was a few weeks ago and I believe it create some awareness among our close relatives and family members. Personally, I believe that cancer can be prevented. Based on the recent post from reuters: Experts says 40 percent of cancer can be prevented. With a small change in lifestyle like quit smoking, eating healthy food, reducing alcohol intake and sun exposure will drastically reduce cancer death cases.
International Union Against Cancer have declared this year’s campaign as “Cancer Can Be Prevented Too”. There are several topics given importance especially vaccines to prevent certain cancers like cervical and liver cancer from early stage in developed and developing nations. You can go directly to the campaign website at WorldCancerCampaign. Cancer is not a stranger anymore to most of us. At least one of our friends, family members, relatives, co-workers, neighbors, etc is a victim of cancer. It can get closer to us if we don’t take any step to fight cancer. Protect your children with vaccines and avoid even third party smoking environment.
Eating healthy, controlling healthy weight and exercising regularly could be a lifesaver in cancer pool. Don’t let yourself drowned in this growing disease that kills millions yearly. As a work from home mum, I find it difficult to allocate time for exercise regularly. I wish this campaign will create more awareness than last year. With the existence of Twitter, Facebook and other social media giants, I hope this campaign will create more awareness to the whole wide world. Let us spend at least one blogpost to World Cancer Day and create awareness to our readers. Let us create a big awareness buzz over cancer in Twitter and other social media.
