cancers A remarkable 90-95% of cancer cases a caused by your environment and lifestyle. Lifestyle factors linked to cancer include alcohol, sun exposure, environmental pollutants, infections, stress, obesity, and physical inactivity.

Professor of Cancer Research Bharat B. Aggarwal, Ph.D, at The University of Texas points out that ??while it is believed that as much as 90% of cancer-related deaths (linked to tobacco, infections, alcohol, obesity, diet and environmental pollutants) are preventable, more than 90% of the funds spent are on treatment and not on the prevention of cancer (3).?
