50% Cancer cases can be prevented!

A latest study has claimed that 50% of the Cancer cases can be prevented! Interestingly, this research has given stress to the preventive measures rather than treatment. The report was published in the journal Science Translational Medicine.

Researchers from the Washington University School of Medicine claim that the society itself possesses the required knowledge to prevent Cancer! Graham Colditz, the study lead author who is also an epidemiologist at the Siteman Cancer Center, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri stressed on exercising, balanced diet & abstaining from smoking as the key ways to prevent Cancer.

The study has described smoking to be the chief reason for Cancer. It gives the statistics that about one third of the Cancer cases in US are due to smoking. The research also prescribes some vaccination like the vaccination against cancer-causing viruses such as the human papilloma virus can do well but still it's true that treatments focus only on a single organ but behavioral changes reduce Cancer plus death rates from many chronic diseases. 

The research study also says that humans are impatient & this characteristic itself is an obstacle to Cancer prevention. Crime & pollution, poor public transportation, lack of open fields for play & exercise & absence of nearby supermarkets for fresh obstructs the adoption of a perfect lifestyle which actually leads to the risk of Cancer in many cases. Along with the other medical preventions the study has also prescribed for a policy change to provide all a perfect atmosphere & lifestyle to throw away Cancer & other diseases.
