Cancer Prevention Guidelines

There is convincing evidence that alcohol consumption increases the risk of cancer.  Review Canada’s Low Risk Drinking Guidelines 

Being physically active can reduce the risk of cancer and during cancer treatment physical activity can help patients combat treatment side effects and improve quality of life.  

Smoking increases the risk of cancer and smoking during cancer treatment reduces treatment efficacy.  Even after a cancer diagnosis quitting smoking can make a difference.  Visit the NSHA Library website for a learning module on cancer and tobacco.
