Unfortunately three-quarters of Americans do not follow the healthy eating guidelines. Deaths from cancer have declined by nearly 25% since 1991 and 1.7 million deaths in total were avoided thanks to more screening, better treatment and shifts in lifestyle reports the American Cancer Society. The decline has been larger in men than women.And... ordering pizza this weekend? You may want to think twice about that. The FDA has revealed the chemicals in the pizza boxes are not safe and has decided to ban the use of at least 3 types of chemical additives to make the commonly used containers which also includes microwavable popcorn bags.
