National Week for Prevention of Cancer

16-24 March 2013

XII edition of the of the Italian League against Cancer (LILT)

 Lilt_affiche   The 12th National Week for Prevention of Cancer in Italy was held this year 16-24 March.  This is one of the highlights of year for the Italian League against Cancer.  Established by a Ministerial decree the event aims to provide information and increase awareness that prevention is now the most effective and successful weapon against cancer. 

Science and medicine concur that more than one-third of all cancers are preventable if we were to eat healthily.  A healthy and balanced diet is in fact an indispensable ally for good health.  The Mediterranean diet, for example, is famous for its health benefits because it includes plenty of fresh fruit, vegetables and whole grains, fish, small quantities of meat, and extra virgin olive oil, renowned for its protective qualities against various types of cancer (in particular cancers of the digestive tract and carcinoma of the breast).  Extra virgin olive oil was therefore elected as a symbol of the historic National Week for Prevention of Cancer of LILT. 

We must all eat healthily, follow simple rules, and adopt behavioural patterns that help reduce the risk of developing the disease, in addition to taking regular exercise, refraining from smoking and reducing alcohol consumption.  If people were to follow this advice and adopt a healthy lifestyle, in the short term, more than 80% of cancers could be cured. From 16-24 March, LILT mobilized volunteers in major Italian cities and offered a bottle of extra virgin olive oil to members of the public in exchange for a modest contribution to support the activities promoted by LILT and help pay for diagnostic equipment.  They will also provide a booklet full of information on a healthy lifestyle with tips and recipes offered by a well-known national chef. 

Approximately 400 LILT Prevention bureaus were opened with doctors, health workers and volunteers on hand to offer all the services which represent LILT’s fight against cancer during the past 90 years.  The Campagna Amica Foundation which has always been a reference point for the development of Italian products, guaranteeing their authenticity, freshness and high quality, also worked together with LILT.  They are an exceptional partner and support many initiatives introduced by LILT.  Throughout Italy, the Campagna Amica offered Italian agricultural products to the Italian public, together with a bottle of extra virgin olive oil thus helping to spread the message to encourage a healthy and balanced diet in a positive way.
