"Healing Within the Flames of Energy" by Allison L. Williams Hill
(In January 2012, UPI published an article with the title “Lifestyle is Blamed for 40% of Cancers”. It was a finding of Cancer Research UK. This is an article I thought was worth posting. Still holds true today.

Forty percent of cancers in women and 45 percent in men could be prevented by a healthier lifestyle, British researchers say.
A Cancer Research UK report found more than 100,000 cancers each year in Britain are caused by four lifestyle factors -- smoking, unhealthy diet, alcohol and being overweight -- and the number rises to around 134,000 a year when 14 lifestyle and environmental factors are taken into account, the Guardian reported.
The research showed that in Britain:
-- Smoking accounts for 23 percent of all cancers in men and 15.6 percent in women. It causes lung cancer as well as bladder, kidney, pancreatic and cervical cancer.
-- One-in-25 cancers is linked to work-related exposure to chemicals or asbestos, while one in 33 is linked to infections, such as the human papilloma virus, which causes most cases of cervical cancer.
-- Thirty-four percent of cancers in 2010, 106,845, were linked to smoking, diet, drinking alcohol and excess weight.
In men, 6.1 percent of cancer cases were linked to a lack of fruit and vegetables, 4.9 percent to occupation, 4.6 percent to alcohol, 4.1 percent to overweight and obesity and 3.5 percent to excessive sun exposure and tanning beds.
In women, 6.9 percent of cancer cases were linked to overweight and obesity, 3.7 percent to infections such as HPV, 3.6 percent to excessive sun exposure and tanning beds, 3.4 percent to lack of fruit and vegetables and 3.3 percent to alcohol, the research said.

A health coach (or health counselor) is a wellness guide and supportive mentor. Together, we’ll work to achieve your goals in areas such as achieving optimal weight, food cravings, sleep and energy. Through working with me, you’ll develop a deeper understanding of the foods and lifestyle choices that work best for you and implement lasting changes that will improve your energy, balance and health.
I practice a holistic approach to health and wellness, which means that we look at how all areas of your life are connected and affected. Does stress at your job or in your relationship cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? As we work together, we look at how all parts of your life affect your health as a whole.
I lead workshops on nutrition, and offer individual and group health and nutrition counseling on weight management, emotional eating, self-image issues to professional women, caregivers, and healers.
