What all this means is that you have to consider all three factors in determining what to change in order to prevent the development of abnormal tissue growth or to treat it, if it is treatable.
If you adjust your diet to comply with that of a patient who had colon cancer, it doesn’t mean it will prevent you from coming down with breast cancer if you have the genetic potential and the right trigger.


Take skin cancer for example. Generally, the sun is the trigger. Should we all now avoid the sun? Or do we consider that only those with certain skin types (with less melanocytes such as Caucasians and Albinos) as well as the genetic potential (which may be evidenced by family history of skin diseases) are the ones who need to avoid the sun? Of course, only those prone to the disease ought to take the precautions or treatments.

In dealing out birth control pills, nobody thinks of giving it to men, right? It’s the same thing.

Cancers are like every other disease. The problem is the finality associated with the diagnosis because science is still limited in this area. And so the associated fear tends to cripple from the inside out.

And please know that not every abnormal growth is a cancer. Abnormal growth, generally known as neoplasms can be benign (non cancerous but not necessarily harmless and usually treatable) or malignant (aka Cancer which may be treatable depending on the stage).

So why is it getting commoner in recent years?

Wait for part 7.
