Cancer is predominantly caused by smoking and alcohol abuse. Cancer can also happen without them. We need to be aware of cancer causing agents and cancer causing lifestyle. Prevention is better than cure!
As cancer is multifactorial and non-linear event, act now to prevent cancer. Health literacy is the potent tool to lead a healthy life.
Stay healthy......
