American Cancer Society: Diet and Physical Activity: What's the Cancer Connection?

Daily habits like diet and exercise greatly affect the risk for cancer. Research has shown that poor diet and not being active are two key factors that can increase a person's cancer risk. Except for quitting smoking, some of the most important things you can do to help reduce your cancer risk are: get to and stay at a healthy weight; be physically active on a regular basis; and make healthy food choices. Each year, about 570,000 Americans die of cancer; fully one-third of these deaths are linked to poor diet, physical inactivity, and carrying too much weight.
