It is estimated that there will be 1,735,350 new cases of cancer in the United States in 2018. Additionally, it is projected that 609,640 people will die from the disease. Sadly, cancer is the leading cause of death worldwide.

It is becoming a well-known fact that cancer is a lifestyle disease that is, for the most part, preventable. Preventable how you may ask? One of the best ways to prevent cancer is to make changes in the way you eat. Many Americans dine on fast and processed foods on a regular basis – foods that contribute to inflammation and increase the risk of cancer. Changing up your diet to include powerful anti-inflammatory foods can significantly reduce your risk of getting cancer.

Exercising regularly, keeping your weight within the optimal range, not smoking and managing stress are all additional ways to stay as healthy as possible.

Here are 3-morning drinks that you can add to your arsenal of cancer protecting foods and drinks.
