14 kiwis are diagnosed with a Gastro-Intestinal (GI) Cancer every day. That’s over 5,000 kiwis every year, making GI Cancers the most common type of cancer in New Zealand. And sadly, over 50% of those diagnosed will die within 5 years of receiving their diagnosis.

A balanced lifestyle including a healthy diet and regular exercise can reduce your risk of cancer.  For more information on gut cancers click on the picture below to watch a short video.
