Breast Cancer: Can You Prevent It?

Amelia Lawson & James Lawson

Breast Cancer: Can You Prevent It? Breast cancer is the most common and feared of all cancers affecting women in the developed world.For many women their breasts are intrinsic to their femininity: loss or damage of them through cancer can result in profound dismay and grief. Nearly forty thousand research studies have been done in the past decade alone. The search is one of the most crucial scientific detective stories of the twentieth century. In this pioneering book, Professor James Lawson and his daughter Amelia Lawson describe the research-based, scientific progress that has been made in the fight against breast cancer. They outline the basic facts about breast cancer so women can assess their risk of contracting the disease and they suggest steps women can take to reduce these risks. Breast Cancer: Can you Prevent It? does not and cannot offer a world free of breast cancer but it does offer an understanding of the disease and therefore, hope.
