A columnist at the Daily News has urged Zimbabwe to try and live a lifestyle that helps fight cancer or keep cancer at bay as cancer cases in Zimbabwe increase. Writing for the publication the columnist said:
Travel to any corner in Harare. You will find the young and old drinking beer and eating roasted meat. Who does not want to live long? The trick to good health is good nutrition, exercise and regular medical check-ups. Following medical advice is of para- mount importance.
I am aware of the economic chal- lenges that the country is facing at the moment, but we need to take care of ourselves — let us visit health facilities for medical check-ups regularly even when we are not feeling sick. Let every woman have a breast examination and be taught how to self-examine her breasts. Let every man have a prostate cancer check-up.
Let us avoid eating junk foods. Let us eat more vegetables and fruits, exer- cise regularly, reduce or stop smoking, meat and alcohol intake. Finally, let us educate the masses about cancer
Cancer has become one of the 5 leading causes of death in the whole world and a cure for it is still to be found.
