It’s impossible to talk about cancer without realizing that everybody’s life has been touched by it either directly or indirectly. In the United States, half of women and one third of men will be afflicted with cancer in their lifetime, and it still ranks as the second leading cause of all death, only a hair behind atherosclerosis.
But unlike heart disease, cancer lethality is even greater in mid-life than among seniors. In fact, for people between the ages of 45 to 65, cancer is the leading cause of death, killing more people than heart disease, liver disease, and stroke combined.
Below is a collection of past articles and podcasts discussing the latest science on cancer and cancer prevention.
