Good news - Cancer can be prevented

One of the worry aspects about cancer is that it is becoming almost normalised, to the point where we think that Cancer is an inevitable part of life. This is not so.
“For many there is a sense that they have no control over their cancer risk,” says John McCormack, CEO of the Irish Cancer Society. “This is a myth. In fact, specific inherited genes only cause about 5-10% of all cancers.  For the vast majority of us, the risk of getting cancer can be reduced by changes in our lifestyle.”
