Cancer

How we Die: Cancer. Which cancers kill the most?

Graphic doesn’t tell us as much as is needed.
I was diagnosed terminal melanoma nearly 5 years ago. It started as a skin cancer, migrated to my lymph system, then established in my liver.
It was all spindle cell type melanoma – a type which does not even appear in the graphic. Had I died it would probably have appeared in the above chart as liver, or perhaps skin, but neither would have been really accurate.

It is not where the cancer ends up growing and killing you that is important, it is the source and type of cancer, prior to its moving to where-ever it finally causes terminal problems.

I appear to have beaten mine – high dose oral Vitamin C appears to have played a large role in that – all of what I did is on my blog – tedhowardnz.com.

There is a lot of evidence that diet plays a large role in the body’s ability to fight cancer.
