War on Cancer

I won't add much of my voice to the headlines of today - that it has been 40 years since President Nixon enacted a  law that led to much cancer research and subsequent medical breakthroughs.

But I will concur with those who attribute the decline in cancer death and cancer rates to 
  • screenings (i.e. pap smears, colonoscopy, and mammograms), 
  • a significant reduction in tobacco use and tobacco exposure, 
  • diets that are plant based and calorie controlled and 
  • to daily excercise

This is my last post for a bit - enjoy the holiday-
