The National Institutes of Health (NIH) approximated that, in 2009, the total yearly costs of cancer were $216.6 billion. The Journal of the National Cancer Institute computed the potential health care costs for treating cancer among the U.S. population five years from now. The Institute learned that, by 2020, these costs could reach $158 billion at the minimum (in 2010 dollars). Moreover, as new tools for diagnosing, treating, following-up, and monitoring cancer become increasingly expensive, these medical costs may rocket up to $207 billion. Given past medical care costs and future expenses, to prevent cancer will reduce personal and national health care costs. Besides seeking to lessen the costs of cancer, this proposal intends to do research on diets and lifestyles that can improve people’s ability to fight cancer, instead of merely being reactive by focusing on advanced and expensive cancer treatment tools and options. This study will improve scientific knowledge by showing that certain ways of nutrition and living can effectively stave off cancer. Cancer Prevention Strategies.
