Guidelines are about small changes that improve cancer risk, not restrict life

the ONA take:

Lifestyle choices that affect a person’s risk of cancer go beyond sunbathing and smoking. Diet and exercise are two other significant factors in cancer risk. Including a variety of fruits and vegetables, especially dark leafy greens; limiting or avoiding alcoholic beverages; and avoiding red and process meat are all beneficial dietary measures. Two additional recommendations are women should eat soy foods and men should limit or avoid dairy products. Exercise is now also directly linked to reducing cancer risk, as well as the indirect benefits of weight control. This article offers this advice to share with patients: A complete overhaul of your lifestyle may be difficult. Instead, focus on making one change at a time. Furthermore, guidelines should be viewed as a series of small changes that can improve your life over time rather than a prescription for restricting your life.

The advice on avoiding processed meat is well supported by evidence.
