American Cancer Society second vice president has produced a book explaining all aspects of cancer

Dr Carolyn Runowicz, a breast cancer survivor herself, will become president of the American Cancer Society in 2005. She believes that cancer prevention is the next big thing in cancer research. She also claims that people can reduce their risk of cancer by eating at least 5 serves of fruit and vegetables daily, regular exercise, healthy weight and participating in all available cancer screening tests. She has also written a book called “The Answer to Cancer” which explains the development of cancer and details the risk factors, causes, available screening tests, preventative measures and new and developing drugs that aim to stop or slow cancers.
