Cancer is the leading cause of death in Australia. Tragically, about one in two Australian men and one in three Australian women will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85.
In this issue of Inside Health, some of our experts talk about new, exciting cancer treatment options, what research is underway and how you can live well to reduce your risk of being diagnosed with cancer. You will also hear about how to stay healthy while you are undergoing treatment and after your treatment is completed.
Also included in this issue is advice from some of our allied health professionals on the topics of podiatry, diet and diabetes. We know that a healthy lifestyle is vital in avoiding illness and disease but sometimes it can be confusing when there are so many differing viewpoints on the best ways to stay healthy.
I hope you find reading these insights from our specialists and staff useful and that they help towards keeping you in good health!
