Make 2012 your best year yet! Join the Choose You movement to set and reach your health goals.

SUMMARY:

According to the American Cancer Society, more than half of cancer deaths could be prevented if people make these actions part of their lifestyle:

Maintain a healthy weight through proper diet and regular exercise

Avoid tobacco products

Gets recommended cancer screening tests

Sadly, research indicates that women are so busy taking care of others that they often struggle to find the time to take care of themselves. The Choose You movement was developed to motivate women to put their health first and reduce their cancer risk.

“The Choose You movement is an opportunity to turn what we know about cancer prevention into healthy behavior change that can help reduce their risk of the disease,” said Colleen Doyle, MS, RD, director of nutrition and physical activity at the American Cancer Society. “Choose You provides a community of support from other women who are dealing with similar challenges, as well as a wealth of information and tips to encourage all women to make a commitment to a healthier life while helping to reduce their risk of cancer.”
