Eating 100 fewer calories a day may help stave off cancer

London: Cutting 100 calories from your diet could be the key to keeping cancer at bay.

The simple calorie cutting, which equals to eating just one and a half digestive biscuits less, can prevent people from piling on weight in just a year.

Kate Mendoza, head of health information at World Cancer Research Fund ( WCRF), said that this strategy of small changes might prevent additional weight gain and help reduce cancer risk.
