American Internet Tech donates to American Cancer Society (February 2020)

February 4th is the 20th anniversary of World Cancer Day, when organizations and people around the world unite to raise awareness about cancer and work to make it a global health priority.

The UICC (Union for International Cancer Control) is calling on governments around the world to:
• Make cancer awareness a priority with progressive health policies and education that support healthy behaviors and focus on engaging people from lower socio-economic populations.
• Make sure the public has up-to-date information on cancer risks and prevention, in a way that is accessible to people from lower socioeconomic backgrounds.
• Enact policies to help lower use of products that increase the risk for cancer, such as tobacco and sugary foods and drinks.

It is also asking everyone to:
• Personally commit to reduce your cancer risk by quitting smoking, eating better, getting more exercise, and staying safe in the sun.
• Take advantage of what your health care can provide, including getting recommended health screenings and vaccinations.
• Use World Cancer Day as an opportunity to improve your understanding of cancer risk factors and share your knowledge with others.

Communities around the world will hold festivals, walks, seminars, public information campaigns and other events on World Cancer Day. The goal is to raise awareness and educate people on how to fight cancer through screening and early detection, through healthy eating and physical activity, by quitting smoking, and by urging public officials to make cancer issues a priority.

American Internet Tech, considers fighting against cancer as a number one priority and thus proceeds to one more monthly donation towards the American Cancer Society.
