Preventing cancer is in our power. Cancer may be the worst contemporary scourge but it is also the most susceptible to preventive measures.
In his latest book, David Khayat delves further into prevention, to take into account recent findings on the multiple causes of cancer.
Preventing cancer depends on each and every one of us, on our ability to modify our lifestyle and diet so as to limit the possibility of developing the disease. Cancer prevention consists of a multitude of small measures that may ultimately change the whole picture. Diet is important, of course, but not exclusively. Sleep, sexuality, medication, night work and even the quality of the leather of our shoes all play a part. As do pollution and magnetic fields. There is much to learn — and knowledge is indispensible. On all these matters, David Khayat reviews the latest research and gives us valuable guidelines on what each of us can do to prevent cancer.
