Welcome to the website of the Foundation for Advanced Cancer Studies. This website looks at the ways in which the medical profession and research scientists are attempting to find a cure for cancer and promote good health and longevity.
While modern medicine continues to search for a reliable cancer cure, there are many aspects to the disease that are potentially preventable by following some relatively simple precepts. Essentially, they involve maintaining a healthy mental attitude while being sensible about what goes into the body by way of food and drinks. While a person may not be able to do very much about their environment, they can do something about the aspects of their lives that they can control.
Healthy is Happy
By doing everything possible to maintain a good level of health, a person can help themselves to avoid many of the triggers that seem to cause cancerous tumors to grow in a normally healthy body. From what is currently understood, a combination of healthy diet and healthy mental attitude can indeed go a long way to helping prevent this disease ever taking hold.
We read everywhere about the potent tumor-busting properties of certain superfoods and much research has been undertaken in that direction. Similarly, it has become quite obvious that a poor diet made up of foods containing several artificial additives can trigger the onset of cancer cell growth, especially in high doses. The obvious answer for helping to prevent this terrible disease is to ensure the diet is as free as possible from artificial additives and based on a whole food concept including lots of fresh vegetables and fruit.
Our series of informative articles are based around these ideas and provide nutritional information as well as advice to help people to choose a healthier diet. There is also a series on attending to mental health and by exploring the power of the mind to similarly help in the prevention of cancer. Prevention of this disease is infinitely preferable to submitting to any of the current treatments designed to affect a cure. Websites such as this provide a useful way to reach a large audience to provide the right kind of education in order that more people can be made aware of the fact that in many cases, the ability to prevent cancer lies in each individual's hands.
It is recognized that more people should be proactive in working toward its prevention, rather than to continue in ignorance only to be forced to submit to the terrifying revelation that they have cancer that can often be through their own negligence in taking care of their health. That may not be something that anyone wants to hear, but often the truth is far less palatable than the lie.

The Obesity Link
It's a commonly held belief among many people that obesity leads to cancer. It's not necessarily true, but the belief that it is seems to have been instilled in people's minds by watching the many TV shows designed to raise awareness of the dangers of being overweight and obese. While there is definitely a link between the two, the message that needs to be understood is that gaining a lot of weight can raise the risks of certain cancers forming in the body, although it's not necessarily a forgone conclusion.

Prostate Cancer and Pomegranates
One of the biggest problems many men face as they approach the age of fifty and beyond is the increased risk of prostate cancer. Many studies have been undertaken in an attempt to learn what causes this form of the disease and how a reliable preventative method can be formulated alongside research into affecting a definite cure. One area that has been given a lot of time and effort is in how healthy life diets can positively reduce the risks. Literally, it seems that what we eat affects our risk levels and some surprising results have been obtained so far,

Is Diet Everything
There is a lot of compelling evidence to point the finger of blame squarely at the modern diet for the increase in the number of cancer cases over the last few decades. Environment and the quality of the atmosphere aside, what you eat and drink can definitely have an impact on your general state of health and various diets, from those designed to be healthy to certain weight loss diets comprised of a variety of ingredients can have a positive or indeed a negative effect on your physiology. But how much of what you eat and drink can directly be accorded the blame for the onset of one or other form of cancer?

There is still much debate on the direct effectiveness of daily exercise in helping to prevent the onset of many forms of cancer. However, one thing is quite certain and that is a physically healthy person is generally less likely to develop certain forms of cancerous tumors thanks to a more robust physical makeup. A person who keeps to a daily workout routine is generally going to be fitter and healthier than one who does not and this in itself can be a determining factor in the increased chance of remaining cancer free.
