The Most Dangerous Cancers in Men and Women

 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, cancer is the second leading cause of death in the U.S. With fatalities totaling almost 600,000 in 2015, it’s important to understand which cancers impact men and women along with the risk factors and potential ways to lessen your chances of developing cancer.

Based on data collected by the American Cancer Society in 2013, here are the most dangerous cancers in men and women:

  • In men: lung and bronchus, prostate, colon and rectum, pancreas, and liver and intrahepatic bile duct.
  • In women: lung and bronchus, breast, colon and rectum, pancreas and ovary.

While the cause of these cancers cannot always be determined, there are numerous risk factors – some controllable – that may reduce your risk. Some of the more common factors include smoking, DNA mutation, older age, poor diet, exposure to chemicals, age, family history and inflammation. Sometimes, reducing your risk is as simple as making better lifestyle choices. Setting your body up for success is key to living a healthful, cancer-free life.

A Second Opinion
Dr. David Katz, MD is the immediate past president of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine and the founder and president of The True Health Initiative. He maintains that the main cause of disease are misuse of forks, feet, fingers.

“Regular physical activity (feet) is associated with weight control, reduced inflammation, enhanced immune function and reduced cancer risk specifically. Optimal diet (forks) exerts far-ranging effects on every aspect of physiology, and similarly stands to reduce the risk of all chronic disease,” he said. “Combine eating well and being active with a commitment to never hold a cigarette (fingers), and the risk of all chronic disease declines by roughly 80 percent.”

Refueling Your Body to Optimal Health
When it comes to avoiding a cancer diagnosis, keeping your body in great shape is key. Following a normal sleep schedule, minimizing your stress and exercising regularly are some of the ways to ensure your wellness, but what you fuel your body with is the most important component. Living off of a diet that consists of refined sugars, saturated fats and processed foods will increase your risk for multiple diseases, and can ultimately lead to cancer. Following a primarily raw, plant-based eating regimen, such as the Hallelujah Diet, uses natural produce, organic whole grains, nuts and seeds to fuel a thriving body.

The benefits of eating raw, wholesome foods that are loaded with vitamins and minerals are endless. Take a look at some of the testimonials we’ve received over the year about how the Hallelujah Diet reversed the failing health of our followers!

    This was very helpful. I did recall reading about how important it is to remove the refined sugars, saturated fats and processed foods from your eating habits. Thank God for the benefits of eating raw, wholesome foods that are loaded with vitamins and minerals are endless. This goes along with the HD diet. Again this was some good information.

  3. Cancer is something most of us fear since so many people are being diagnosed with it. I’m glad we can be proactive and by eating a plant based diet, juicing vegetables, exercise, getting plenty of sleep, reducing stress and taking supplements.

    WE ALREADY MAKE VEGGIE SANDWICHES AND WE JUICE VEGGIES (GREEN ONES PRIMARILY) WE DO NOT EAT MEAT OFTEN AT ALL..RARE OCCASIONS !! I HAVE GIVEN RECEPIES TO MANY PEOPLE TO GET THEM TO EAT BETTER AND IMPROVE THEIR HEALTH I AM STILL TEACHING FOLKS AND HAVE HELPED HEAL 2 PEOPLE OF CANCER..NUMEROUS FOLKS OF DIABETES AND HELP FOLKS CLEAR UP THEIR SINUS PROBLES.. PLUS LOTS OF OTHER ISSUES !!!!!

  5. The war on cancer is more than 45 years old and yet today medical “science” and doctors are no closer to a “cure” Want to know why? Because there’s more money to be made by treating the disease than putting an end to it.

    That is the real reason why cancer continues to grow and program like natural health, nutrition and lifestyle changes are being ignored. Thus you must take matters into your own hands.

  6. In 1971 when President Nixon launched the war against cancer he assured us that cancer could be defeated. Since Nixon promise in 1971 we have been hearing that a “cure” for cancer is right around the corner. They tell us that all we need is more money for scientific research. However, this financial commitment has been made many times over. We have spent ineffectively billions of dollars into a search for a cure for cancer, and now we want to know how the war against cancer is going. Well, the unfortunate truth is this: We are losing badly since December 23, 1971, when President Richard Nixon signed the National Cancer Act of 1971 into law.

    “The December 1994 issue of AMERICAN HEALTH stated, The US is losing ground in the war against cancer”. And they still are losing ground in spite of all the propaganda and advertising to find a “cure”.

  7. This is great information to have.

  8. I agree. While there are some aspects that we cannot control when it comes to our risks that are associated with certain diseases, we can definitely do our part by making sure to nourish our bodies properly with a variety of fresh vegetables, fruits, lots of leafy greens, and fresh vegetable juices.
