Cancer is a complex disease that can be caused by a combination of factors that can include genetics, lifestyle choices, and environmental effects. While it’s difficult to pinpoint the exact causes of increasing cancer rates, research shows that cancer is more likely to be caused by lifestyle choices than is commonly thought. Lifestyle and environmental factors, such as poor diet, lack of exercise, and exposure to environmental toxins, have been shown to play a role in the rising rates of cancer. It is estimated that genetic mutations contribute to around 5-10% of all cancers. Identifying the genetic cause of cancer is also important for both prevention and treatment purposes, particularly in individuals with a family history of certain types of cancer.
It’s important for individuals to take steps to reduce their risk of developing cancer by making healthy lifestyle choices, getting regular cancer screenings, and seeking medical care if they have any concerns about their health. These choices can be tailored by our professionals to suit your body using your genetic information.
