The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a report today on the health of cancer survivors. You always hear how a cancer diagnosis changes a person's health habits for the better. But it's not always the case. From the report, culled in a random survey of cancer survivors throughout the country, come these stats:
- Approximately 15 percent of cancer survivors still smoked
- Approximately 27 percent were obese
- Approximately 31 percent had not participated in any leisure-time physical activity during the past 30 days.
Did a health scare help you change some unhealthy habits?
