Small changes now may produce huge benefits later

The Canadian Cancer Society says that about one-third of all cancers can be prevented by eating well, being active and maintaining a healthy body weight. That's pretty good!

To help us achieve the goal of being active and eating well, the Cancer Society has made September Limit Salt and Sugar Month.

Eating too much salt and salty food may increase your risk of stomach cancer. Our bodies need salt but Canadians generally get too much! Eating sugary foods makes it more likely you'll put on weight, which increases your risk of cancer. Read nutrition labels carefully. You'll find extra sugar all over, including in some sauces and condiments like ketchup and relish. Salt is nearly everywhere too. Even breakfast cereals have it.

Check here for recipe suggestions from the Cancer Society on how to reduce sugar in our diets.
