Poverty is a Carcinogen...

Dr. Len says...Poverty is a carcinogen. Does any one care?
We have heard lots and lots about how cell phones and Styrofoam cause cancer.  But do you hear anyone talking about the huge impact of poverty and limited education on cancer?

...let's start to focus on the fact that we could save thousands upon thousands of lives every year if we all followed some basic living habits and had access to the services that reduce the risk of dying from cancer.

...but sitting right in front of our noses is the fact that if we did what we already know, at least 37% of cancer deaths in people between the ages of 27 and 64 could be avoided right now.
