The list of things that induce cancer always seems to be growing, but there are certain things you can do to reduce the health risks . strong>
The list of products, foods, and materials that induce cancer seems to always be developing longer. Our lifestyle and dietary habits can directly affect the risk of cancer, but it isn’t something that’s always on our minds.
The World Cancer Research Fund wants to bring it to the forefront, and has teamed up with Arthur London and photographer and director Rankin to create a series of cinemas to advertise a new Cancer Health Check. It’s a five-minute test to induce people aware of the links between diet and cancer, which is based on questions about diet, alcohol intake, and exercising habits.
In the video, simulates are eating and booze in an extreme way, and the message is that no matter how good something seems or savours, it could be really bad for your long term health.
“Our idea needed to challenge the entrenched faith that cancer ‘gets you’ not that you can ’cause it, ‘” told Nick Whillis, a partner at Arthur London. “We are so proud of the work and thrilled that Rankin chose to photograph this for us. He not only understood the creative idea but truly believed in the messaging behind it — if you do not follow the recommendations, you could be flirting with the disease.”
Jane Heath, the director of communications& marketing at WCRF UK added that one in six fatalities worldwide are caused by cancer, but the public are tired of hearing contradictory health messages — so there’s a risk they are no longer listening.
“Our cancer prevention recommendations, when followed together, render the most reliable blueprint available to reduce people’s peril of developing cancer, ” she told. “We is under an obligation committing people the most up-to-date, scientific and authoritative information about the links between diet, weight, physical activity and cancer, which is why we hope this campaign highlightings our aim that no one should die from a preventable cancer.”
