Your food, your best protection. What we eat and other lifestyle choices affect our health. With just a few small changes to what we eat every day, we can help protect against major illnesses, including some cancers. These changes can also give our health a boost. Cancer is a big issue in Northern Ireland. It is:
- the leading cause of death;
- responsible for almost 4,000 deaths a year;
- estimated that over 1,000 of these cancer deaths are linked to diet.
