Cancer has overtaken heart disease as the leading cause of death among middle-aged and elderly people living in affluent countries, but according to experts, 30–50% of cancers can be fully prevented by avoiding these common cancer-causing habits.

Processed meats

Processed meat is carcinogenic to humans. Processed meat is cooked with chemicals that have been shown to damage cells in the colon and rectum. In fact, eating just 1.8 ounces a day is said to increase the risk of colon cancer by 18%.

Plastics use

Some plastic containers contain BPA, a synthetic hormone that can disrupt the body’s endocrine system and increase the risk of breast cancer.

Poor oral hygiene

According to research, gum disease is linked to a 24% increase in lung and colon cancer.

Researchers believe that gum disease may alter immune responses and distribute harmful bacteria throughout the body.


The most common cancer is lung cancer, and the most common cause of lung cancer is smoking. Cigarette smoke contains 7,000 chemicals, at least 70 of which are carcinogenic and increase the risk of cancer in almost every part of the body.

Inhaling smoke

Like smoking itself, passive smoke inhalation can cause lung cancer. It’s also linked to an increased risk of breast, nose, and nasopharyngeal cancer in adults and leukemia, lymphoma, and brain tumors in children.


Alcohol increases your risk of developing cancers of the mouth, throat, esophagus, larynx, liver, and breast. The more you drink, the higher your risk of cancer.

Not exercising

One of the biggest causes of cancer is a sedentary lifestyle. The human body needs to move. Exercise is essential to remove harmful toxins from the body.”
