Prevention

Colorectal cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in Canada, but it is also one of the most beatable forms when detected early enough. Your lifestyle plays an important role in your risk of developing colorectal cancer. In fact, according to the World Cancer Research Fund International, there is strong evidence that certain lifestyle choices such as being physically active, adopting healthy eating and drinking habits, not smoking and maintaining a healthy body weight can decrease the risk of developing cancer. Let’s work together to help fight colorectal cancer.
