Cancer Exercise and Obesity

American Cancer Society Guidelines


The American Cancer Society clearly supports a plant based diet to limit your chances of getting Cancer.  They also recommend exercising.  Imagine that!  My only question is why is this not more publicized by them.  The majority of the info that I could find on cancer prevention from them was aimed at not smoking and limiting the use of tobacco products.  Which is certainly a concern.  However, with the severe obesity rates and rising amount of cancer patients, I believe that there needs to be a more concerted effort to publicize that it is not OK to eat all of the processed foods that are so readily available today.  The full detailed pdf from the AMerican Cancer Society can be viewed here.
