Cancer from occupational exposure can occur due to prolonged exposure to carcinogenic (cancer-causing) particles within the workplace. As avoiding certain occupations to prevent cancer is a very extreme measure to take and can be quite impossible for some, it is important for these workers to be able to protect themselves properly within the workplace and to conduct regular health check-ups following possible exposure, and in general to keep up with one’s health within a particularly high-exposure environment.

Wednesday, 9th Sep 20

Red meat has been classified as a Group 2A carcinogen - which means it probably causes cancer but the evidence is limited. While red meat is a good source of zinc, B12, iron and protein, you can get the same amounts — and in some cases even more — from poultry, fish, eggs, and nuts, or by following a plant-based diet.

Nicotine reaches your brain within 10 seconds of when it enters your body. It causes the brain to release dopamine, and that creates a buzz of pleasure and energy.

Wednesday, 26th Aug 20

As a coach, the one fundamental principle I look to communicate to athletes is that of purpose. Purpose is something every training plan should be built upon and consistently referenced week to week. A training plan full of sessions with no specific purpose is like a complex cake recipe with no set order. The end result may look something like a cake, but the details and intricacies you come to expect are either non-existent or add no value to the overall piece.

Monday, 13th Jul 20

Visceral fat is fat stored around our organs. It produces more chemicals than subcutaneous (under the skin) fat, which is why it’s termed ‘toxic fat’. The excess chemicals may lead to abnormal cell division, making 13 types of cancer more likely to grow. Visceral fat also increases risk of Type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol and many other conditions.

Summer Training Program

Wednesday, 1st Jul 20

Summer Training Program With restrictions easing and the sun coming out, there has never been a better time to start a summer training program. Whether you like running, swimming or even both, there is just something so brilliant by getting out, enjoying the warm weather and getting fit all at the same time. With Can Too Foundation, we know that it can be a little bit hard to shake off that winter stiffness but we have a range of training programs to help you get back into it. We train participants for a multitude of run and swim events so we are sure to have a training program what will suit you and get you fitter and healthier than ever. The best thing about training with us for an event? Not only are you doing something great for yourself and your health but you always have the opportunity to raise some much-needed funds for cancer research. From one-kilometre swims, half marathons and even run to swim events, there are plenty of opportunities and incentives to get training for. Check out our events and get in contact with us so we can help you with a summer training program that can help you achieve your health and fitness goals, while raising money for a good cause.

Let’s talk about fruit and veg… and ...

Wednesday, 1st Jul 20

Fruit and veg are thought to help protect against cancer both directly through a combination of nutrients which form anti-cancer agents, and indirectly by helping to maintain a healthy body weight. Fruit and veg are rich in fibre, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytochemicals, which help to protect your body against cancer. They are also rich in nutrients and low in kilojoules and are therefore great food choices if you’re trying to maintain or lose weight.

Overexposure to UV radiation causes more than 95% of skin cancers. Many people believe that if you have a skin cancer removed, it’s gone, however secondary cancers can form in your bones, your lungs, your heart or your head. While it’s important to have skin cancers surgically removed early, preventing them from occurring is vastly preferable. Another common misconception is that we need exposure to the sun to get the Vitamin D we need for good health, however incidental exposure outside of peak UV periods is sufficient for most people to maintain adequate Vitamin D levels.
