This seems not only to stop cancer cells spreading, but also prevent the disease recurring in people who’ve had it.

If these mutant cells grow and manage to elude your immune system, then they can spread throughout your body.

However, there’s also mounting evidence that you can weaken a cancer by starving it of the fuel it needs to grow — blood glucose.

The first is HIIT: we’ve known for some time that exercise can cut your risk of cancer, by up to 35 per cent for some forms.

Analysis of data from 3,000 people over a 20-year period showed that those who did intense aerobic exercise were 72 per cent less likely to develop metastatic cancer (cancer that had spread) than those who did no exercise.

In other words, they could ‘suck in’ more glucose from the blood, depriving the cancer cells of the fuel they needed to spread.

Researchers at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden found that the patients who lost lots of weight and got their blood sugar levels down to a normal level were 60 per cent less likely to develop cancer over the following ten years than those who didn’t.

This new research suggests that not only has this reduced my risk of heart disease and dementia, but it’s cut my risk of getting cancer by 60 per cent, too.

More controversial than exercise or weight loss are claims a ketogenic diet, where you eat more fat and protein but cut right back on carbs, can reduce your cancer risk.

Dr Michael Mosley: The downside of going keto is you may cut out foods known to prevent cancer, such as wholegrains, fruits and vegetables.

Like exercise, the idea is that by following a keto diet, you weaken cancer by depriving it of glucose.
