I'm obviously not an expert but I think food had a huge role in your health so things we try to do as a family to stay healthy :
Lots of fresh fruit and veggies - not just for vitamins and minerals but for their cancer fighting antioxidants- try and get minimum 2 fruit and 5 veggie serves a day and aim for the super dooper ones like blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, kale, spinach and broccoli - very lightly steamed or with spinach and kale literally wilted by putting a piece of fish or meat on top of it ( organic is preferable if you can afford it)
Plus obviously avoid/limit colours and preservatives and any processed or fast food
Only use coconut oil or olive oil ( or only cold pressed oils) and look at reducing your omega 6 intake
Avoid all processed meats and eat more fish
A wide variety of food is the best , don't keep eating the same things all the time

- Drink more tea, especially green tea (antioxidants)
- Exercise approx 30min each day (increase body strength/immune system)
- Use more herbs & spices, especially turmeric

- increase 'orange' vegetables high in Beta carotene, eg- sweet potato
- include peanuts / peanut butter in your diet for vitamin E to help keep your cells defences strong.

People have had lots of success stopping cancer through high carb, low fat vegan diets. So plenty of fruit and veg, organic would be best.
I think diet would only be part of it. We are exposed to carcinogens everywhere in just about everything. I think going as natural as possible/back to basics would help. Look at your cleaning products, shampoo, body wash, make up, etc.. no doubt half of the ingredients you can't decipher as they long names for harmful chemicals. Things like BPA in plastics, the lining of tinned food, etc.. can all leach into your food.
Hmm.. have you read slow death by rubber duck? They explain the harmful effects of chemicals you commonly find around the house.

Triclosan (an antibacterial product) to their 'Total' toothpaste, which has been associated with things such as cancer, hormone disruption, reduced heart function and allergies in some studies.
Colgate Total, one of Australia's most popular toothpastes, has come under international scrutiny over health concerns connected with one of its active ingredients, triclosan.
The toothpaste contains 0.3 per cent of the ingredient, the maximum level before it must be declared a poison by the Australian department of health's national industrial chemicals notification and assessment scheme.
The threshold for poison warnings was raised from 0.2 per cent after submissions claimed that it would have widespread commercial implications for a variety of industries.
Crest have removed triclosan from their toothpastes and Johnson & Johnson are phasing it out of their products due to safety concerns
I swapped back to a regular fluoride Colgate toothpaste because I'd been using the normal Colgate toothpaste for years with no major oral health issues.
While chemicals are important in certain workplace settings such as healthcare, research is showing that antibacterial chemicals in consumer products such as toothpaste and liquid soaps are unnecessary at best and harmful at worst.
