Cancer Prevention

Cancer prevention is defined as active measures that are taken to reduce the risk of cancer. Not all cancers are preventable such as the cancers that are caused due to hereditary genetic disorders. More than 30% of cancer deaths could be prevented by avoiding tobacco, obesity, poor diet, physical inactivity, alcohol, sexually transmitted infections and pollution. Scientists are studying different ways in which cancer can be prevented which includes:

  • Diet and lifestyle

  • Medications

  • Vaccinations
