Summary
According to the latest World Health Organization statistics, cancer is now the biggest killer globally. In Australia, about three in every ten deaths are caused by cancer. In Western countries, including Australia, the rise in cancer cases is attributable to ageing populations and increased screening. Lifestyle has also been highlighted as a major causal factor, with cancer particularly prevalent in countries where people have poor diets, inactive lifestyles and high smoking rates. This book presents accessible information aimed at improving understanding around the causes and prevalence of cancer, as well as offering general advice on cancer prevention and awareness. What are the risk factors for the most common forms of cancer, and what are the best approaches to early detection and prevention? The best cancer is the one you don't get - prevention is the greatest cure
