6. Unhealthy Lifestyle Behaviours

Smoking Tobacco - increases the risk for at least 15 different cancers including lung, mouth, tongue, esophagus, bladder, kidney and pancreas.

Alcohol Consumption - alcoholic beverages can increase the risk of cancers of the mouth, throat, esophagus, breast, colon and liver.

Risky Sexual Behavior - human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is the cause of almost all cervical cancers and some cancers of the anus, vagina, vulva, penis, mouth and throat. Hepatitis B and C infections can cause liver cancer, and people infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) are at greater risk of lymphoma and Kaposi's sarcoma.

5. Too Little or Too Much Sunlight - Dr Oz says too much ultraviolet radiation (UVA and UVB rays) can cause melanoma and other types of skin cancer. And not enough sunlight can cause vitamin D deficiency, a recently proposed suspect in cancer of the colon, rectum and pancreas. Take a daily vitamin D supplement especially if you spend a long time indoors or measure deficient on blood tests

4. High-Fat, Low-Fiber Diet - Dr Oz says diets that are high in fat – particularly saturated fat, or low in fiber, have an increased risk of cancers of the colon, uterus and prostate. Diets high in fat may also contribute to obesity, another major risk factor for cancer. Eat no more than 30% of daily calories from fat and choose foods that contain unsaturated fat vs. saturated or trans fats. Eat foods and high in fiber such as whole grains

3. High Body Mass Index - Dr Oz said the higher the BMI, the higher the death rates for all cancers, particularly esophageal cancer, stomach cancer, colorectal cancer, liver cancer, gallbladder cancer, pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer, kidney cancer, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and leukemia. If a person has a BMI of 40 or higher the death rate from cancer is increased substantially – by 52% in men and 62% in women when compared to people of normal weight.

2. Family History of Cancer - Family history is one of those risk factors that we can do absolutely nothing about, but knowing what you might be up against is key to a plan of protection.

1. Age - Cancer can occur at any age, most cancers are diagnosed in people older than 65, when cells begin to deteriorate and the natural protective mechanisms begin to fail.

Dr. Oz's Three Ways To Look Younger


Dr. Oz shares 3 ways that you can fight the aging process, and it all starts at home, with 3 simple fool proof remedies.

1. Dr. Oz's number one thing to keep your skin looking younger has do with how you sleep. Use a 1 Micron Pillow Case that fights inhalation of dust mites and their fecal matter, plus it will cause swelling of your face. In addition, sleep on your back so your face isn’t fighting gravity to prevent wrinkles.


2. Moisturizer - Wear a mega-moisturizer containing glycerin that locks in moisture. Glycerin based moisturizers creates a barrier to lock in the moisture. Glycerin pulls moisture from the deep part of the skin up to the surface to help.

3. The Sun - The sun is the number one ager of our skin, and the left side of our body ages faster, higher risk of skin damage. Wear SPF 30 sunscreen every day, even when you don’t feel like you’re going to be outside all day.
