We need to make it clear that no strategy is 100% effective. That's why we do NOT use the word "prevention". The information here is gathered from hundreds of studies and years of observations. Some is 'best guess' but some is absolutely proven.
None of it seems harmful, lots of it is common sense.
Overuse of Antibiotics contribute to Cancer Risk
Antibiotics are routinely prescribed inappropriately, for example for conditions caused by viruses, which are not responsive to antibiotics. Part of the problem is that patients commonly pressure their physicians to prescribe antibiotics for colds and upper respiratory infections - self-limiting illnesses for which antibiotics are not only not needed but not effective.
Physicians themselves are far from blameless, though: most ear infections in children do not require antibiotics, but 97 percent of US physicians nevertheless treat ear infections with immediate antibiotics: 15 million prescriptions for antibiotics are handed out annually for this reason (Spiro, 2006).
Not only is such overuse of antibiotics contributing directly to antibiotic resistance and the emergence of dangerous new pathogens, research shows that it may also have a significant effect on the risk of developing cancer.

Seven Things You Can Do To Improve Your Health
1. Start eating organic fruits and vegetables whenever possible. Studies continue to show organically-grown foods contain more vitamins and minerals and less chemicals than conventionally-grown food. Think about adding vitamins daily. Remember dietary supplements are NOT a substitute for good nutrition.
And letís face it, pesticides, herbicides and other chemicals are implicated in many ailments including cancer. As more research takes place, we will have more direct evidence.
See our section on Environmental Issues and Food/Water/Products Issues section for more.
2. Start exercising. Studies have shown that exercise is beneficial to all aspects of your health, including reducing risk of more/other cancer.
Get your kids exercising too.
You can walk around your room, your block, your neighborhood, ride a bicycle, jump a trampoline, swim, do yoga, tai chi, chi gong, walk a treadmill, etc. Just do it.
Best part, you can do it a few times a day and still get a benefit as long as you combine it with healthy food choices.
3. Healthy food choices include more fruits and vegetables with EVERY meal.
You need a minimum of NINE a day as the National Cancer Institute has stated. Less salt, less sugar, NO hydrogenated fats( bad for the heart). Use olive oil, flax oil (cold only), or ghee. Avoid soda, drink water (maybe with a little vitamin C powder). Eat whole wheat, whole grains, less processed foods. Avoid preservatives and additives like artificial color and flavor.
See the Food/Water/Products Issues page on our site.
4. Learn to consciously relax. Meditation, music, art, journaling, yoga, massage, aromatic oils, many other methods will work. Maybe you garden, embroidery, sew, it all works to relax you.

5. Detoxify your body too. Get your lymph system functioning optimally. This is especially important for those of us who have had node dissection. Small trampolines work well for this. Skin brushing is another method. Or self-massage starting at the neck, unaffected arm, or groin to open the lymph drainage channels. See our section on Lymphedema Issues on the Breast Cancer Issues page, or Detoxification Issues on the Treatment page of our site.
6. Tips for pre-surgery, recovery, non-toxic ways to treat unwanted effects. See http://annieappleseedproject.org/nontoxwaytod.html
7. Talk to your doctor or other healthcare provider about everything that you do. If you use herbs and you hope they work, then discuss it. You may download studies and articles from our site to help you with this talk.
