I am writing to offer your readers a free copy of our booklet of guidelines on how people can reduce their cancer risk.
Many people still think cancer is largely a question of fate,but research has shown that people can make a real difference to their chances of developing the disease by making positive changes to their lifestyle.
In fact, scientists now estimate that about a third of cancers could be prevented by eating healthily, being physically active and maintaining a healthy weight.
This is why at World Cancer Research Fund we are committed to spreading the message that cancer is a largely preventable disease.
Our Guidelines for Cancer Prevention booklet explains the key steps people can take to reduce their risk.
We are offering a free copy to the first 100 people who call 020 7343 4205 and quote the code 'media'. The booklet can also be downloaded at www.wcrf-uk.org/publications
