"The way I feel about it it is that
eat nutritionally or adequately
prevent it because that appears to be the trend now. During the old times it was not heard of but because there are so many cancers being discovered and there are numerous
food intake is one of the factors

" Just like with any type of disease or cancer you won't know until you’re getting regular checkups and sometimes in a family you don't even know, you don't have the signs and it happens anyway. I guess it’s worth it to pay attention, to always have regular visits obviously
eating good nutrition
, it’s going to build a foundation for where you’re going to be in the disease. I think with any disease in general kidney, colon cancer
nutrition is going to be a big impact overall
because the more
poorly you eat
don't have the nutrients
or the immune system built up to
fight against the infection.
