BREAKTHROUGH CANCER RESEARCH SMALL CHANGE CAMPAIGN

CANCER

Breakthrough Cancer Research is calling on the public to make small changes in their lifestyle to help dramatically reduce their cancer risk.

The ‘My Small Change’ campaign, launched today by Breakthrough Cancer Research (Breakthrough) in the run up to World Cancer Day on Saturday, 4th February, aims to highlight evidence-based information about how eight small lifestyle changes can make a big difference to our cancer risk. While it is well known that giving up smoking and being sun smart can help prevent cancer, Breakthrough want to highlight that many small lifestyle changes in our nutrition and physical activity can also help lower our risk of developing cancer, with up to a third of cancers are preventable through diet and lifestyle changes (1). During February, Cancer Prevention month, Breakthrough want people across Ireland to commit to one small change they can make to help lower their cancer risk. They can join many others, who this month will publically commit to making one small change in their lifestyle and share it on social media with the hashtag #MySmallChange.
