Prevention, therefore, is a big deal. We need to do everything we can to reduce our risk of developing cancer, even as we understand that sometimes it just happens.
You probably know about the importance of healthy food when it comes to cancer prevention. But what is less talked about is the role that beverages can play.
Certain drinks can up your risk as well and are better off avoided. You will be surprised by some of these!
1. Tap Water
2. Bottled Water
4. Energy Drinks
5. Regular Soda
6. Diet Soda
7. Very Hot Drinks
8. Fancy Coffee Drinks
9. Juice & Juice Drinks
10. Store Bought Smoothies
11. Sports Drinks
In the end, plain filtered water is best for your body. Other beverages are fine in moderation, but aim to get about 2 liters of water per day before drinking anything else (your morning coffee aside, of course).
What you drink is just as important as what you eat in terms of cancer prevention, so don’t forget to note those liquid calories.
