    Hi Norman, thanks for another informative sharing about cancer. I come to know some of the food that contain trans fat which should be avoided, to prevent excessive cholesterol build up that will lead to cancer. Dessert, cake, bread, fried food are those which contain the Trans Fat. I believe cancer can be prevented through a healthy diet. Although some of the factor such as polluted air and sunlight which is out of our control, but still we can decide where we live and work, if we really care about our health

The mind is a power house or a computer that controls the body, so I believe with the use natural medicine and keeping a postive out look that involves the entire persons mind , will and emotion can do a whole lot of good. Hope I answered you question. All the best to you and have a good day.
