#Immunosuppressed? #Cancer Prevention Tips

risk-cancerFor my fellow transplant recipients, cheers to living a good life. Albeit immunosuppressed, it’s important for us to remember we’re at an increased risk of infections and cancers. Instead of being a ‘Debbie Downer’, I want to share this vitally important information on what we can do to reduce our risks of cancer. 1) Screen. You can never learn too soon about cancer anywhere on or in your body. 2) Eat healthy and exercise. Make it a ‘must do’, not an ‘I should’. 3) Avoid smoking. That’s nonnegotiable. 4) Limit sun exposure and alcohol consumption. 5) Keep your BMI in the normal range. Having learned that 90% of cancer risks can be minimized, there’s no reason you and I can’t minimize them, too.
