Take Control of Your Cancer Risk
John Whyte, MD, MPH
You have the power to reduce your cancer risk--and this book will show you just how easy it is.
Each year, over a million people in the United States alone hear the words no one ever wants to hear: You have cancer. But what if there was a way for fewer people to hear these words?

- knowing which screenings you need, and when
- learning the role food, exercise, and sleep play
- understanding the relationship between stress and cancer
This book will show you how easy it is to lower your cancer risk--something everyone has the power to do!
