Tips to help reduce your chance of getting cancer

There are many things we can do to significantly reduce our risk of cancer.  We can eat lots of fruits and veggies, drink plenty of water, and we can take a walk every day. You've probably heard all those suggestions, but here's one that might surprise you; plus, it's just in time for the weekend.

Dr. Catherine Ronaghan said, "It's everything in moderation, but beer happens to suppress bacteria that grows in our stomach. This bacteria is associated with ulcers, but it's also associated with stomach cancer."

Dr. Ronaghan also suggests lots of water instead of sodas.  She says carbonated beverages and diet drinks are linked to pancreatic cancer while water, preferably 8 glasses a day, has been shown to reduce the risk of bladder cancer.
