Women and cancer

Last night, I posted a link here about women and breast cancer. In today's Times Online, David Rose writes about the threat to women from cancer brought about by elevated blood sugar.

As ever, there are a few lines about how one can reduce the risk of contracting life threatening diseases like cancer.

“And the good news is that it is possible to reduce your blood sugar levels by eating a healthy balanced diet with lots of fruit and vegetables and maintaining a healthy weight.

“We know that up to 40 per cent of cancer cases can be prevented by this type of healthy lifestyle, so this is just another reason for people to make those small changes that could make a big difference.”

Very sound advice, a little healthy eating could stop a lot of heartache.

I didn't know where else on your recent posts to mention this: the American blogger Ballpoint Wren posted on cancer yesterday and I hope you don't mind but in her comments section I have just mentioned you and your trek and campaign. Best wishes from Sicily.
