According to Cancer Research UK, 1 in 2 people born after 1960 will be diagnosed with some form of cancer during their lifetime. 4 in 10 cases each year in the UK are linked to major lifestyle and other factors, like tobacco which is the single most preventable cause of death in the world.
There is no cure for cancer yet and the race to find a lifesaving treatment has been on for years, and has given life to a global industry. What are your options when it comes to choosing an effective treatment for cancer? Are you genetically predisposed to the disease? Can you prevent this disease from happening to you or a loved one? What is the real impact of the gold-standard treatments – chemotherapy and radiation – on your health. Do you even have other options to choose from?
Here at the Daily Health we explore all these questions and more because like everyone else, when it comes to cancer, we are also looking for answers.
