In this video lecture from MIT World, Professor Robert Weinberg gives a overview of adult cancer and how it develops over time. He charts the rise and fall of certain cancers in America over the past hundred years ago and attributes most of these changes to lifestyle rather than any genetic predisposition or environmental pollutant. He sees cigarette smoking and eating a high fat, red meat diet as the two most influential factors towards the rise of lung cancer, prostate cancer, and other cancers in America. He shows that it is much easier to dramatically reduce the likelihood of many cancers than it is to rely upon any form of cancer treatment. Professor Weinberg also shows the stages a tumor goes through before they become malignant and develop into cancer. This lecture is an excellent introduction for anyone interested in how cancer develops and how one might take action to prevent it.
