Some areas of the U.S. experience much higher cancer rates than others, such as regions in Florida and Kentucky. While cancer is not 100% preventable, there are steps you can take to help reduce your risk.

It is also important to eat a balanced diet, maintain a healthy weight, and drink alcohol in moderation. Physical activity can also help.
