Cancer is newly diagnosed every 75 seconds, and kills one person every minute in the U.S. The news of having cancer is both frightening and shocking to an individual and his or her family, since most of cancers are life-threatening and not curable.

The possible contributing factors are environmental chemical toxins, radiation exposure, certain genetic modified foods, genetic factors, etc. According to World Health Organization, five major risk factors are Tabaco use, excessive alcohol intake, unhealthy diet, physical inactivity and chronic infections. However, it is not fully understood how these contributing and risk factors cause or trigger proliferation of cancerous cells. The most common sites of cancer causing death are lung, liver, colorectal, stomach and breast. The 5-year cancer survival rate is 67%.

This is why integrative oncology is gaining population in the U.S.
