Eating habits can increase your chances of developing certain types of cancer. Cancer care experts advocate that all individuals exercise healthy eating practices—even on birthdays.

By substituting these unhealthy dishes with foods like applesauce and dried fruits, you can enjoy a delicious and nutritious birthday cake this year.
