Food

Are you eating healthy?

I don’t.

That was me before I was diagnosed with a rare case of pancreas cancer.

I craved a lot for instant noodles and quick meals from fast food restos.

I rarely ate fruits and veggies.

Why ‘no’ to healthy foods before?

Expensive.

Difficult to find especially the organic type.

Taste bland.

Until, the big ‘C’ hit me hard.

Here is my A Dose of Ramedy today:

Eat healthy.

According to Cancer Research UK, eating lots of fruits and vegetables has been linked to a lower risk of mouth, throat and lung cancer.

Strong evidence shows that eating lots of processed and red meat can increase the risk of bowel cancer, and possibly stomach and pancreatic cancer.

Processed meat includes ham, bacon, salami and sausages. Red meat includes all fresh, minced and frozen beef, pork and lamb. Fresh white meat (such as chicken) and fish are not linked with an increased risk of cancer.

A simple way to get the right foods in the right amounts is by thinking about your plate. At lunch and dinner try to:

  • Fill ½ your plate with colourful vegetables
  • Fill ¼ with high fibre wholegrain foods like brown rice or wholewheat pasta
  • Fill ¼ with a healthy protein food like fish, fresh chicken or pulses (e.g. beans or lentils)

According to World Cancer Research Fund, people with less healthy diets are more likely to develop cancer. Many studies have been conducted looking at the association between diet and cancer, and experts agree that the food we eat can affect our risk of cancer

You are forewarned!

Have a healthy meal everyday!
