​About 4 in 10 cases of cancer can be prevented through healthy behaviours

What you eat and drink, how active you are, whether you smoke and other behaviours can all make a difference to your risk of getting cancer, and your chances of preventing it.

It’s never too early or too late to start practicing these healthy habits.
