About 1 in 5 cancers are related to diet or lifestyle, and could be prevented.

If you are fighting cancer, it is important to catch it in the early stages. This is when treatment is most like to work the best.

The human body is a finely balanced machine. It is necessary for all parts to work for optimal health. Cancer hinders parts of the body from working properly. Cancer tumors disrupt normal functioning of various organs.

As cancer cells increase in an organ, that organ is less capable of doing its job. Since all jobs are vital to the body (lungs for breathing, digestive track for absorption of nutrition, bone marrow for the creation of red blood cells, pancreas for the creation of insulin), then as the organs stop working, the body eventually loses its ability to function as a finely tuned machine. This leads eventually to death.
