On World Cancer Day, the 4th of February 2009, the International Union Against Cancer (UICC) launched ‘I love my healthy active childhood’. The aim of the campaign is to raise public awareness worldwide of the irrefutable link of diet, physical activity and obesity with the development of cancer and, in light of this, to encourage children to incorporate both a healthy diet and regular exercise into their daily lives.
Uh huh, if it were only that simple . Yes, it will improve the quality of health and it will protect from other diseases but it still won’t protect them from cancer.
I don't disagree that it is very important to eat well and exercise. I disagree with the impression that it gives parents a sense of false protection.
Healthy, extremely active, perfect weight, vitamin-taking LuciaGirl and many other kids still get cancer and die.
