    Nobody knows what causes cancer, and so nobody can tell you how to prevent it! If there was a known way, few of us would get it!Fewer than 10% of all cancer cases are hereditary; most of the rest are a mystery!Any claims that diet, stress, lack of exercise etc cause cancer are speculation and reflect the fears and prejudices of the person making the claim! Its less frightening for someone who hasnt had cancer to blame the victim – put cancer down to avoidable lifestyle factors – than it is to accept that cancer is a largely random disease that can strike any of us!I once felt that way; I thought, when I thought about it at all, that my healthy, largely organic vegan diet – coupled with the facts that I exercised regularly and have never smoked – would protect me from cancer! I was wrong, and I got cancer anyway!If we knew how to prevent cancer, few of us would get it! Yes you should eat healthily and exercise – youll be healthy, but dont rely on this to prevent cancer!!
