Publisher's Summary

Myths and misinformation abound as to how to prevent cancer. While there is no way of saying for certain who will or will not get cancer, over the last 50 years medical scientists have learnt a great deal about its causes.

Consultant oncologist Terry Priestman looks at factors which increase the likelihood of getting cancer, and what can be done to decrease the risk. All the common cancers, including breast, bowel, prostate, cervical, lung and skin, are discussed.

Among the topics covered are:

  • Genetic factors
  • Smoking, drinking alcohol and diet, weight control and exercise
  • HRT
  • Cancer and the environment, including sunlight
  • Cancer vaccines and chemoprevention
  • Screening

    Reducing Your Risk of Cancer presents the facts, not the fantasies, and helps you make an informed choice about advice that may make a difference.

      "Dispells the many Cancer related myths..."

      This book was really interesting. Cancer seems to run in my family and as such it is of course a worry to me. I bought this audio book as I heard that it explained some currently known causes of cancer and also discussed the theory of certain cancers being genetic. It explains all the officially known causes such as smoking and over indulging on certain food types and did indeed explain the research to date on genetic cancer types. This book has certainly put my mind at ease and was very informative generally.
