6 Ways You Can Prevent Cancer Right Now

A new survey finds that most Americans know they can cut their cancer risk, but they're not doing anything about it. FITNESS to the rescue! Here, our best no-cost ways to eat healthy, get more exercise, and reduce your cancer risk right now.

A third of the 565,000 cancer deaths expected in 2008 could have been preventable -- with healthy eating and regular exercise. According to the American Cancer Society, most Americans (83 percent) know that they can cut their risk of cancer by eating right and exercising but they're not doing anything about it. It's time for you to take charge and fight cancer. Here's how.
