12 ways to reduce your cancer risk

The European Code Against Cancer, developed by the International Agency for Research on Cancer and the European Commission 2014,  aims to inform people about actions they can take for themselves or their families to reduce their risk of cancer.

It consists of 12 recommendations that most people can follow without any special skills or advice. The more recommendations people follow, the lower their risk of cancer will be.
