The American Cancer Society’s lifestyle recommendations

The American Cancer Society (ACS) issued their updated guidelines for lifestyle behaviors, particularly in the areas of diet and fitness.  Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the US, after cardiovascular disease, and the leading cause of death in Hispanic and Asian-American populations, and in people aged younger than 80 years.

While the report is long, it is informative, and in the beginning it summarizes in a chart the evidence-based recommendations for diet and physical activity for specific cancers.  It’s well worth a read.
