I am dedicated to doing everything in my power to combat this horrific disease -- not just as a Member of Congress, but also as someone who has been personally affected.
Spoof or not, e-cigarettes are no laughing matter. Neither are their largely unknown health consequences.
Scientific evidence tells us that over 50 percent of all cancers are preventable by applying what we know right now.
My appeal to one and all is that we make cancer prevention the No. 1 priority for ourselves, our communities and our nation. Cancer does not discriminate; it has no particular ideology or political party.
When the Bagbys arrived Monday morning to see a wall vandalized by graffiti, they were distraught. Then they took a moment and looked at the message: "4 Kenny-Cancer Can't Kill Me," and they knew there was more to this story. In their blog, the Bagbys wrote, "this was bigger than us."
If there's one key scientific finding over the past two decades that has the greatest potential to have a positive impact on cancer, it's that 50 percent or more of all cancer is preventable by things we can do.
For millions of Americans, cancer can be stopped before it's cured -- stopped by prevention. Recently, I spoke at TEDxHouston on cancer prevention...
February is National Cancer Prevention Month. I appeal to all decision-makers and influencers in government, education, healthcare, media and nonprofits to place a greater emphasis on cancer prevention. We can save lives -- now.
Still the most feared of all diseases, cancer now has some good news. But the responsibility is yours to make sure you are one of the good statistics, not one of the bad ones.
Cancer prevention should not be just experiments performed in a laboratory or a reason for building a new medical center, but rather cancer prevention must include looking at the choices we make in our everyday lives and in business.
In the spirit of Thanksgiving and the holiday season, witnessing everyone gathering with their families, friends and even strangers, I want to explain how cancer has made me thankful... for life.
The story of the pink ribbon is the story of how breast cancer prevention has been marginalized and the power of people to stand up to corporations. Few people know that the pink ribbon began as a peach ribbon for prevention.
Scientists are working hard to uncover gene-nutrient associations for all types of diseases, especially cancer. Once these associations are better understood, nutrition recommendations can be then personalized for disease prevention and management.
Let me introduce you to the idiot that was me 11 years ago. I actually said, "Man, that's nothing compared to what I have coming to me." I still cringe when I think of those words today, because when you are going through cancer, the last thing that will ever help you is comparing your situation to others.
In my teens, I ate wheat, gluten, sugar; basically the normal SAD (Standard American Diet). My dietary staples were breads, muffins, baked goods, hamburgers, Chinese food, spaghetti, pizza. If it was junk food -- I ate it.
The fact that we are surrounded by high speed everything -- living, eating, driving, breathing and of course technology -- is taking its toll on our sense of inner peace. Perhaps we can't change our entire life, but we can certainly make small steps towards healthy choices that in fact will make us happier.
