Beating the gene pool

by Contributing Editor: Health Sciences Institute, 3/20/2002

We've known for over a decade that certain kinds of cancer seem to run in families. In many ways, that knowledge is helpful. But a genetic predisposition to cancer can also leave you feeling doomed.

That is certainly understandable. But more and more, we're learning that a family history doesn't mean your fate is cast in stone. There are many things you can do to mitigate that genetic risk - or even eliminate it completely.

Fascist Code Words
