New cancer treatments that focus on improving your immune system's ability to deal with cancer pretty much validate this conclusion. In addition, after analyzing 1000 different studies, the American Institute for Cancer Research concluded that 40% all cancers could be prevented with "simple" lifestyle changes such as maintaining a healthy weight, eating well, exercising, and limiting alcohol consumption.
