I know it is easy to make different assumptions to get the answer you want … so I am always a little skeptical of things like this.
The bottom line is if you want to avoid cancer or survive longer with cancer you need to clean up your diet, exercise and get rid of excess body fat. Those things are good for all of us, and it if helps to avoid cancer that is even better.
