3. Consuming Too Much Sugar
Although sugar is a necessary part of many types of food and drinks, it’s also extremely dangerous for you. Consuming foods with too much sugar increases the risk of getting cancer. And that’s without mentioning other health problems like obesity and diabetes.
Eating too much sugar in your food will put your body and organs under extra stress. This causes your organs not to work as they should and increases your chances of cancer.
2. Practicing Unsafe Sex
By now, you should know that unsafe sex can lead to many different types of sexually transmitted diseases or STDs, including gonorrhea, HIV, and herpes. But on top of all that, having sexual relationships without protection can lead to cancer as well.
To be more specific, oral sex can cause cancer of the pharynx and neck. This cancer-causing agent is known as human papillomavirus, or HPV. Granted, the chances of getting cancer this way are lower than contracting other STDs. However, that doesn’t mean you don’t have to take the necessary precautions.
1. Excessive Exposure to UV Light
If you love spending all day at the beach, you need to take a lot of precautions. Being exposed to ultraviolet (UV) lights for a long time can be risky and increases the risk of skin cancer.
Keep in mind that we’re talking about overexposure to UV lights. The sun is the best vitamin D source, and it can help your skin, bones, and muscles. You can get sun and get tanned, but you need to put on sunscreen to protect yourself. Likewise, while we’re mostly talking about the sun since it’s the most common scenario, any object that produces a great amount of UV light is dangerous. For instance, tanning beds will also cause the same risk.
