"You Have Cancer"

Season 7, Ep. 1
This week on , we spent time talking about modifiable risk factors to reduce your chance of developing cancer. The special guest this week was oncologist Susan Escudier, who practices at Texas Oncology .With regard to cancer, there are multiple modifiable lifestyle changes that can have a big impact on the eventual risk for cancer and its development. The American Cancer Society recently published data indicating that 42% of cancer cases and 45% of cancer deaths in the United states are linked to modifiable risk factors. In other words, these cases could be prevented. Based on recent data, that translates to 660,000 cancer cases and 265,000 cancer deaths that could have been prevented.The main modifiable risk factors include smoking, secondhand smoke, obesity, excessive alcohol intake, eating red and processed meats, diets low in fruits and vegetables as well as dietary calcium, physical inactivity, UV radiation, and specific cancer associated infections including H. pylori, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, herpesvirus type 8, HIV, and human papilloma virus.In the weeks to come on the radio, we are going to continue this series of modifiable lifestyle changes and focus on other disease states including heart disease, liver disease, kidney disease, dementia, lung disease, and diabetes.
