Have you noticed how some people live their lives in "cancer prevention" mode? They attempt to eat well, exercise, and do certain things with the mindset of warding off cancer. It's like they assume it's out there waiting to pounce and they must kept it at bay.
Why not eat healthy, get proper rest, and exercise because it makes you feel better? Why not operate from a place of feeling good instead of living in fear?

Human attitude has a tremendous influence on health. It can be so simple and now science is proving it. (I'll spare the intricate scientific details of DNA and genes; it's basically like each gene has an on/off
