    Introduction: The rates of the risk of cancer differ with difference in place, climate, habits such as smoking and drinking, lifestyle, etc. The changes we see with time, around us are proof that certain elements of lifestyle or environment largely affect the rate of common cancers. When case–control studies were performed, consumption of fruits and vegetables was linked with reduced rates of cancer risks. Excess energy intake when compared to the required amounts can elevate the risks of human cancer. However, increased input of vegetables and fruits into the body has been indirectly proportional to the levels of cancer risks in people. Change in dietary patterns might be able to judge the risk of cancer in a person. Materials and Methods: A survey-based questionnaire with a set of 10 questions was prepared and distributed among the participants. Results: Reheating of food, consumption of red meat, etc., have increased the risks of cancer. The risk of various cancers was directly proportional to the consumption of red meat, carbonated beverages, etc. Conclusion: Among the group of participants, non-vegetarians had more chances of getting cancer than vegetarians.
