More than 50% cancers preventable

More than half of all cancer is preventable and society possesses the requisite knowledge to act on this information, says a new study.
Investigators from the Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, have outlined obstacles that stand in the way of making a huge dent in the cancer burden in the US and around the world.
