The European Code Against Cancer: 12 ways to reduce your cancer risk!

The European Code Against Cancer is an initiative of the European Commission to inform people about actions they can take for themselves or their families to reduce their risk of cancer. Coordinated by the WHO International Agency for Research on Cancer, the current edition consists of twelve recommendations that most people can follow without any special skills or advice. The more recommendations people follow, the lower their risk of cancer will be. It has been estimated that almost half of all deaths due to cancer in Europe could be avoided if everyone followed the recommendations. One of the recommendations is to “limit your alcohol intake!”.
Recommendation nr 6: “If you drink alcohol of any type, limit your intake. Not drinking alcohol is better for cancer prevention.”
