For every YES, give yourself 1 point. For every NO, add 0 points.

0-5 Points: Low Risk

The good news is that you are at a low risk for developing cancer. Awesome! The bad news is that "low risk" does not equal "NO risk" though, so it is important that you continue to make good choices when it comes to your health & well-being. 

5-10 Points: Average Risk

Okay... you are at about the same place as MOST of the American population. You have an "average risk" of developing cancer. The good news is that you can start doing better & lowering your risk TODAY! Look at what you're eating & putting into your body, change your habits, get some more sleep, quit smoking or drinking so much, get outside, & get physical! You can take control of your health!

10-15 Points: High Risk

This may be hard news to take, but it is important to know; you are at a HIGH RISK of developing cancer! You HAVE to start making changes NOW or you are almost guaranteed a shortened life span. Don't condemn yourself to an early grave - start small & change your life!!
