Dear Pta Lady
You can prevent cancer by eating healthy foods, taking anti-oxidants, avoiding preservatives and very refined foods, high fat foods, and living a healthy lifestyle. Certain cancers run in families - one has to do regular breast examinations, see your doctor yearly for a medical check up, and avoid the sun or use sunblock to prevent melanoma.
