Excerpts from the Paper

The beginning:
Cancer and Food
Is it possible to avoid cancer by a proper diet of healthy foods? In other words, are there ways to reduce the risk of developing cancer through what we eat? While eating healthy and avoiding a lot of processed foods, the risks of cancer may be slowed, but science has yet to prove that there is a valid relationship between what, and how, one eats and the onset of cancer. While, just like cigarettes, there may be some carcinogens in poorly prepared foods, the advent of cancer cells is usually a far different origin. Still, by taking certain precautions and a healthy diet, the onset and progress of cancer cells may be slowed.
Among the most important precautions in terms of diet is avoiding obesity.
