Cancer is a group of diseases that can impact basically every organ of our body, all of which have in common uninhibited cellular growth. The cells forming our body have the ability to grow in the background of wound healing or for the continuous replacement of cells in our skin, blood, or intestine. Behind each newly diagnosed malignant tumour in adulthood, there is an individual history of perhaps 20 or more years of tumorigenesis. Thus, malignant tumour formation usually takes time making cancer in most cases an aging-related disease that we seem not to be able to avoid. However, tumorigenesis is reliant on multiple environmental influences, many of which we have under control by lifestyle decisions, such as holding from smoking, selecting healthy food, and being physically active. Thus, cancer preventive interventions are the most helpful way to fight against cancer.
