Returns from 16 to 24 march, for its eighteenth edition, the National Week for the Prevention of Cancer of the LILT – Italian League for the Fight against Cancer, the campaign to spread the culture of prevention as a way of life and raise awareness of the importance of correct life styles to prevent cancer
With the patronage of the ministry of Health and the Presidency of the Council, and in partnership with Confcooperative, the National Week, presented today in the presence of the Health minister Giulia Grillo, this year has a double mission: to invite the population to healthy life and to control visits, but also put on guard by the fake news in the field of cancer prevention, in particular with regard to the power supply. The prevention, the president said Lilt Francesco Schittulli, “must be rooted in our daily life, especially at the dinner table. Today in fact we know that around 35% of cancers are linked to improper nutrition and a phenomenon such as obesity, in growth, is closely related to the development of oncological diseases. There are no shortcuts, there are no miraculous recipes, as it sometimes wants us to believe the many hoaxes that circulate on the net: healthy life style and regular medical examinations are the only weapon to prevent really the onset of cancer”. Wild Lucarelli, a writer and journalist, is the face of this warning that Lilt wishes to extend to all the citizens, and to rely only to the true prevention, such as the mediterranean diet, regular physical activity, the medical checks, the stop to alcohol and cigarettes.
In addition to monitoring visits, you will be able to perform at nearly 400 centers prevention and the 106 provincial offices Lilt, in the course of the Week National in the main Italian squares you will find a gazebo, where volunteers will provide information and where you can also find, in the face of a contribution in support of the activities promoted by Lilt, a bottle of extra virgin olive oil Italian food typical of the mediterranean diet, a friend of the health and historical symbol of the prevention campaign.
Even the football championship Series has supported the campaign Lilt. .
