Two representatives delivered a lecture to spread awareness among children about the preventive steps that can be adopted to stop the spread of cancer. Cancer is the second leading cause of death globally, taking a heavy toll of human lives and destroying the families of the cancer patients due to mental agony and heavy costs of treatment.Ms. Neha Tripati and Ms. Jagriti Srivastava informed the students that bad dietary habits, lack of physical activity, obesity and consumption of tobacco are the common causes of cancer. Some easy ways to prevent cancer were suggested by them. One should include dark coloured fruits and vegetables in ones diet since such foods are rich in antioxidants. Soyabeen and nuterela protects from cancer causing symptoms and should be a part of the diet. At least 2 liters of water is a must.Soft drinks which are rich in sugar, should not be consumed regularly. One should not eat food while watching television. Break-fast is the most important meal for the day and hence should not be skipped at any cost. Coloured tissue paper and paper bags should not be used to store food, since these contain dyes which contaminates the food and has cancer causing substances.
