Dispells the many Cancer related myths...

This book was really interesting. Cancer seems to run in my family and as such it is of course a worry to me. I bought this audio book as I heard that it explained some currently known causes of cancer and also discussed the theory of certain cancers being genetic. It explains all the officially known causes such as smoking and over indulging on certain food types and did indeed explain the research to date on genetic cancer types. This book has certainly put my mind at ease and was very informative generally.
