Cancer

There are millions of people currently living with cancer and this figure is predicted to rise.

Cancer is an umbrella term for a large group of diseases caused when abnormal cells divide rapidly, and spread to other tissue and organs. Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the world.

Cancers are named for the area in which they begin and the type of cell they are made of, even if they spread to other parts of the body. For example, a cancer that begins in the lungs and spreads to the liver is still called lung cancer. Carcinoma is a cancer that starts in the skin or the tissues that line other organs; Sarcoma is a cancer of connective tissues such as bones, muscles, cartilage, and blood vessels; Leukemia is a cancer of bone marrow, which creates blood cells; Lymphoma and myeloma are cancers of the immune system.

My focus is on nutrition and lifestyle choices and what you can do with your diet to help avoid getting cancer and get rid of it, if you already have it, including the latest cutting-edge research in this area.
