Cancer Prevention

Posted By pcfadmin On February 28, 2011 @ 10:03 pm In | No Comments

Research suggests that only five percent of cancers are hereditary. That means the non-inherited causes of cancer — the lifestyle choices we make, the foods we eat, and our physical activity levels — have a direct impact on our overall cancer risk. The Foundation encourages people of all ages to take charge of their health by making smart lifestyle and nutrition choices, seeing their doctor regularly for checkups and health screenings, and monitoring their bodies for any changes that should be brought to the attention of medical professionals.

Preventable Cancers

The Foundation focuses its resources on cancers such as breast [1], cervical [2], colorectal [3], lung [4], oral [5], prostate [6], skin [7] and testicular [8] that can be prevented through lifestyle changes or early detection and treatment.
