Findings disclosed by the research, showed how healthier living could have prevented about one third of the most common cancers.
In America, the same improving diet, weight control and exercise would put a stop to 12 most common cancers including stomach, prostate, and pancreas, womb and esophagus tumors. The results complement the study conducted in 2007 which demonstrated the significance of growing and eating factors in cancer development.
