Written by Simon Mitchell

Below The World Health Organisation (W.H.O.) summarise what we know about cancer from scientific research:

Cancer is largely preventable: by stopping smoking, providing healthy food and avoidingrepparttar exposure to carcinogens. Some ofrepparttar 147755 most frequent cancer types are curable by surgery, chemotherapy or radiotherapy. The chance of cure increases substantially if cancer is detected early. Quality of life of cancer patients and their families can be greatly improved byrepparttar 147756 provision of palliative care. Cancer control is a public health approach aimed at reducing causes and consequences of cancer by translating our knowledge into practice.

Recommendations fromrepparttar 147757 World Health Organisation concerning cancer include action inrepparttar 147758 following areas:

minimising or eliminating exposure to cancer causes reducing individual susceptibility torepparttar 147759 effects of these causes servingrepparttar 147760 greatest public health potential identifyingrepparttar 147761 most cost-effective long-term cancer control tobacco control obesity control control of composition ofrepparttar 147762 diet control of consumption of alcoholic beverages

The World Health Organisation sees cancer prevention programmes as part of integrated, national strategies. The risks they identify for cancer above are common to all noncommunicable diseases including heart, diabetes and respiratory problems.
