Expatriate healthcare insurance policyholders may wish to ensure their lifestyle choices are healthy in order to reduce their risk of being diagnosed with cancer.
Dr Ian Lewis, associate director of research at charity Tenovus, said moderating intake of alcohol, consuming a good amount of fruit and vegetables as part of a healthy diet and exercising regularly can lower someone's likelihood of being stricken with this illness.
"There is still a common misconception that in all cases developing cancer is purely down to chance," he claimed, adding that it is currently believed up to 50 per cent of all instances of the disease may a result of bad habits.
Only three per cent of all respondents to a recent survey were aware that being overweight can heighten an individual's chances of suffering from this ailment, despite the fact that it has been linked to breast, bowel and kidney cancer, the expert noted.
"Many cancers are treatable if they are detected early enough," Dr Lewis declared.
The World Health Organisation estimates that around 21 per cent of all European women will contract this illness before they are 75 years old.
