Preventive Measures for all Types of Cancers
A tidal wave of cancer is sweeping the globe. Very recently, the World Health Organization predicted a 70 % rise in cancer cases. Awareness to fight the war on cancer is needed. The history of cancer, its causes, risk factors, symptoms, detection, diagnosis, staging, and the treatment of cancers and their complications will be presented. Preventive measures to fight the main supporters of cancer such as smoking, air pollution, food contaminants, inactivity, UV and electro- magnetic radiations, and emotional stress will be discussed. In addition, the work being done by our research team for prostate cancer at Biomedical Engineering Department, NJIT will also be presented.
