Cancer Prevention In Canada
To date, the Canadian Strategy for Cancer Control is still an idea on a shelf. Fed up with the federal government’s lack of action, the National Cancer Leadership Forum launched its Canadian Campaign to Control Cancer (CC2C).
While focusing on palliative care and treatment, the campaign addresses the need for prevention. People are urged to quit smoking, improve their diet, increase their physical activity, and avoid overexposure to the sun, activities which can reduce an individual’s risk of developing cancer.
