Cancer – prevention is better than cure

Eating plenty of vegetables and fruit everyday can provide us with many different vitamins and minerals which may help protect against diseases such as cancer.

Tips on including more vegetables and fruit everyday:

• Eat fruit with breakfast, e.g. a banana with cereal or a glass of fruit juice with your toast. Make fruit salad on the weekends.

• Snack on fruit between meals - apples, pears, grapes, naartjies or bananas are easy to eat at work. Dried fruit, e.g. raisins and dried peaches make tasty snacks.

• Include salad with lunch or on your roll, e.g. slices of tomato, lettuce and carrot sticks.

•Try to include at least 2 different coloured vegetables with dinner, e.g. green beans and carrots, spinach and butternut, peas and corn, broccoli and cauliflower, or mixed salads and stir-fries.

I'm all for it - we're going to have power cuts regardless, so we might as well have some stability to better plan our lives

No thanks! I prefer having periods of no load shedding and we cannot normalise this crisis
