Colon cancer survivors with healthy habits live longer

A UCSF study of Stage 3 colon cancer patients found that survivors who followed the standard American Cancer Society guidelines for healthy living were 42% less likely to die over the 7 year period the cohort was followed.  The researchers say their findings are likely to apply to many types of cancer survivors.

"My patients feel that they are being taught a great deal of important information in the Anticancer Lifestyle Program that they otherwise would not have been exposed to. They ultimately feel empowered and motivated to pursue significant lifestyle changes, and in most cases, these lifestyle changes are sustainable." --New Hampshire Medical Oncologist
Changes: I'm more centered in all the self-care aspects. Being more gentle to myself. Got a fit bit and am moving more. Meditating more. Continuing to chose love.
This is a super program and given the time allowed, much was covered.  We were encouraged to use our judgement and take it slowly and not "try to do all the changes" and that is a good thing.  The additional classes are also most helpful as they can help us focus and also as we gain strength, knowledge and capabilities, help us to keep on improving.
