4. Curing Cancer Blog

Dr. Pernick has published a new essay in his blog, Curing Cancer – Part 7 – Random chronic stress / bad luck as a major cause of cancer.

Key concepts discussed are: (1) random chronic stress / bad luck is a major cause of cancer at some sites; (2) cancer often develops through rare bursts of activity in cells and their networks, not in a gradual, step-wide manner; (3) cancers due to random chronic stress may have better survival and other clinical differences compared to cancers due to traditional risk factors and (4) due to the presence of random chronic stress, cancer will always be with us; although we can prevent some cases, we can detect it earlier and we can treat it more effectively.
