Episode 217 – Shonella Singh: Best Practices to Reduce Cancer Risk

On this episode of #RNTFitnessRadio the team and I are joined by Dr. Shonella Singh, to discuss the best practices around managing our cancer risk, and all the determining factors behind it. The medical science behind this all can often go right over our head, so we invited Dr. Singh to come on the podcast to break it down to basics, and tell us exactly what factors lead to cancer, what we can do to lower our risk, what are the myths, and the importance of regular screening. This is an episode for all ages, as we discuss how lifestyle changes early on can compound into the future, and why what we do at RNT is so beneficial for overall disease prevention. If you’ve got loved ones who may be at risk, this is an important episode to listen to, share, and implement.

“If there’s any change in your normal pattern, then you should see a doctor.”

– Shonella Singh
