According to BBC Wales, less of us in Wales believe that healthy living can reduce the risk of cancer. I only part believe it myself - although I do believe physical fitness and mental attitude can help deal with it, when it strikes. Certainly helped me cope when I went down with colorectal cancer 4 years ago.
Cancer Research UK reckon that over 50% of cancer cases can be prevented. It seems that the most affluent people are willing to agree while the poorest people are resigned to their fate. In many cases, early detection is the secret for recovery.
So in this New Year, let us as a nation smoke less, not get so fat, take more exercise, eat more fruit and veg, drink more water and less alcohol, have more sex and don't overdo the sunbathing.
