Not all health problems are avoidable, but you have more control over your health than you may think. Research shows that a large percentage of cancer-related deaths are directly linked to lifestyle choices such as smoking, drinking, a lack of exercise and an unhealthy diet. Avoiding cigarettes, minimizing alcohol, and getting regular exercise are a great start to an anti-cancer lifestyle. But to best support your health, you also need to look at your eating habits.

Join us to find out more about this topic. For more information, please contact Kerry Clay, Community Health Educator for the Coastal Cancer Center at Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital, at (757) 395-8686.
