Ask the Nurse

Someone told me eating yogurt and drinking bottled water causes cancer, is this true?

There are a lot of myths about what causes cancer. Rest assured yogurt and bottled water do not cause cancer. If you want to reduce your risk of cancer:

  • Eat a healthy Mediterranean diet
  • Exercise regularly
  • Keep your body weight in normal range
  • Avoid more than 3-5 alcoholic drinks maximum per week
  • Make sure your vitamin D level is normal
  • See your physician on a yearly basis to get the periodic recommended cancer screening and health screenings

All My Best,
