DEBUNKED: 2/3rds of Cancer "Just Bad Luck"

Description

Dr. Rhonda Patrick sheds some light on the recent misleading headline stating that cancer is mostly due to bad luck. Of course, there is a bad luck component to cancer -- but there's also a very, very large environmental and lifestyle component. She addresses the many misleading ideas that accompanied this study, explains what the study actually showed, and also discusses an important role for magnesium in preventing random mutations. The title of the study that spurred this particular video is entitled (for your Googling pleasure): "Variation in cancer risk among tissues can be explained by the number of stem cell divisions" and is authored by Cristian Tomasetti and Bert Vogelstein.
