What You Do In Your Youth Doesn’t Affect Your Chances Of Getting Cancer Later On

Lies and if you’ve been paying attention to what has been written so far, you’ll soon realize that whatever can affect your genes in your youth speeds up the process of actually developing cancer. Smoking, standing next to plutonium, snorting weed laces with heavy metals, eating meat that’s more charcoal than actual meat, standing under the sun for no reason without sunscreen or even unsafe sex can lead to increased chances of you developing cancer later on in life.

It is estimated that about 2/3rd of all cancers can be prevented with simple lifestyle changes. So think about it the next time you’re smoking a joint while engaging in unprotected sex. It might be great fun now, but one fine day, it’s going to bite you in the ass and I don’t mean in a very sexy way either.

This year Footsteps in the Mirror will be blogging to raise money for the Association for International Cancer Research which is a non-profit organisation that helps fund cancer research throughout the world. If you’re willing to help, you can sign up on the Blogathon website and pledge your amount right here. Help make a difference, no matter how small it may be.
