Approximately 40 to 60 per cent of human cancers are related to lifestylefactors, especially smoking and nutrition,” says cancer researcher Dr. Gary Williams of American Health Foundation. He points out that “some people have a fatalistic attitude,” believing that it is of no use to quit smoking or change their eating habits since the damage already has been done. According to the doctor, these people are deluding themselves. “After 15 years of not smoking,” he says, “the risk (of getting lung cancer) returns to the level of someone who doesn’t smoke.” He recommends “cessation of cigarette smoking, moderation of fat in the diet, and more fibre in the diet.”
