Cancer SuPPort accepts donations for its scientific research
through the Charity Cancer P Prevent
"Disease is not conquered by treatment, but by prevention"
John Cairns, Professor of Public Health, Harvard University.
Cancer P (Primary) Prevent is a research body that forms part of the Imperial College Trust, the registered charity of Imperial College London, no 2730710.
Research carried out by Cancer P Prevent is focussed on understanding the causes of cancer relating to diet, lifestyle and the environment. Being part of the University there is a minimum administrative structure that ensures that funding goes directly to state-of-the-art science.A Different Way of Approaching Cancer by:
- Primary prevention rather than surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy and drugs.
- Meta analysis and risk assessment not animal experiments to identify dietary and lifestyle factors, pollution and harmful chemicals and other cancer causing environmental agents.
- Developing strategies to reduce, and where possible eliminate exposure to environmental carcinogens.
- Communicating the facts in an accessible, available form to help prevent, treat and overcome cancer.
The main sponsor of this research is presently Breast Sense. Breast Sense is about Breast Awareness, being able to understand and identify changes in our breasts early to give greater treatment options and chances of recovery. The ultimate aim however must be to understand and eliminate the causes of those changes. Jane Plant has been happy to endorse the Breast Sense video and special glove for breast self examination. These are available at Lloyds Pharmacies nationwide.www.breastsense.net
