Why fight cancer? It starts from prevention.

About the Event
According to the CDC 2017 data, cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States. Did you know that only 5% of all cancers are genetic, which means it is passed on? On the other hand, 95% of all cancers are due to environmental factors, which we can obviously choose not to be exposed to. Even if you are in the 5% having cancer genes, your genetic code for cancer still has to be expressed to produce the disease/cancer. Lifestyle medicine operates under the assumption that "genes load the gun, lifestyle pulls the trigger". Understanding the events that lead to the development of cancer will give you the right armor to shield yourself from this disease. You have a chance to win the fight against cancer, before or even after it starts.
