Women's health guide
This booklet provides you with information about the cancers women are most at risk of and offers practical advice and tips to reduce your risk
Today's busy lifestyles mean that our health can sometimes slip down the priority list. Women especially are renowned for putting others first, and when it comes to cancer, it's easy to see why it isn't seen as a concern right now.
People sometimes think that cancer is caused by bad luck or genes. However, the positive message of this booklet is that every woman can do something to reduce her cancer risk.
With guidance on keeping a healthy weight, mixing up your movement and eating well, plus specialist information on pregnancy and the menopause, this is the guide that you – or the women in your life – need.
