A good healthy diet & lifestyle, exercise & keeping insulin levels down & we have a good chance of avoiding cancer.

Don't smoke cigarettes, and you'll avoid lung cancer. Don't overeat, and you'll avoid arteriosclerosis. Don't lay around all the time, not exercising... the list goes on.

Of course this is wonderful news. Giving up smoking has greatly decreased not only lung cancer, but others as well. The cancer that the AMA has been greatly concerned about is pancreatic. This cancer kills 95%. It knows no age group, ethnic group, or sex. My father died of it 5 years ago. Billions of dollars in research has gone into finding a source - little progress has been made.

This is encouraging, but we must not let ourselves be lured into a false sense of security. The threats are real and this disease just cruel and horrible and there is still much work to be done in terms of finding cures. Thanks Suzane.

hard to avoid second and third hand smoke which account for a good percentage of lung cancer cases. interesting remark in the comment section about ozone therapy. i knew an elderly woman whose father was a doctor. she pulled a contraption out of her closet once and explained that this ozone machine had cured the majority of her father's patients. i didn't know what to make of it at the time. i guess i'll have to finally do some research.

Actually, cancer deaths worldwide have continued to increase and are right on schedule to meet the WHO's projection to double between 2003 to 2015.

We have been told just about every year since the War on Cancer was declared almost half a century ago that we are winning the war on cancer. We have not even come close. See:
