Every year it’s the same thing, eat better, exercise, etc … Sometimes you get in a groove and keep it up for a month or two if you’re lucky. I’ll be honest, I lasted about four days this year and then I got busy with work. It’s the same old story but it’s not too late! Here is an inspiring article that has relit my resolution fire! Here’s hoping we can all change these resolutions into a more permanent healthy lifestyle.
People who stick to their New Year’s resolutions to be healthier this year might not just feel better but also reduce their risk for cancer, a new study suggests.
In fact, their chances of developing cancer could drop by 33 percent, the researchers said.
“The take-home message is that healthy behaviors can have a truly tangible benefit,” said study author Peter Elwood, with Cardiff University in the U.K.
“A healthy lifestyle has many benefits additional to cancer reduction,” he said in a news release from the journal ecancermedicalscience. “It costs nothing, has no undesirable side effects — and is better than any pill.”
The researchers set out to quantify the effects of healthy behaviors, analyzing data on more than 500,000 people.
