The new rules for defeating cancer

The new rules for defeating cancer : “Being even slightly overweight can increase the risk of a range of common cancers including breast, bowel and pancreatic cancer, a landmark study has found.”

I heard a good discussion of this on the radio today. It’s true that we are all trying to avoid cancer. It’s disgusting but there is so much stuff coming out that probably we’ll avoid a lot of it and just stay ourselves and that won’t really help. Some cancers are preventable and we need to be clear about which ones and what we can do to avoid those. Other things comes down to who we are and what we can manage. It is something we need to learn about but it’s becoming harder to practice because it’s no really clear anymore. In truth, all we can do is our best.
