A person can add up to 10 years to his/her life by quitting smoking. By breaking this addiction you will not

2. Get screened tested

You must visit for annual screening tests like the Pap test and mammogram if you are a woman, for men you can talk to your healthcare professional about the pros and cons of a Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA). Both the tests i.e Pap test and PSA help you in detecting cellular changes before they become cancerous. The mammogram can detect breast cancer in its earliest stages. As we all know that nowadays the number of patients of breast cancer has risen sharply.

You should know that, if you go for this test annually then you already have reduced the chance of cancer by 40%. You should remember that most of the cancer is curable if detected in the early stages, so it's good if you take these tests seriously.

3. Lose excess weight
