Isn't it important to speak about what causes or propiciates cancer?

People and specialists mainly speak about finding a cure for cancer (or cancers because there are many different ones). There seem to be alot of efforts to find cures and hopefuly it will happen. But is that enough? I think that while the fight is being done on one front, another front isn't given the due attention. Pollution, societies organized in a way that stresses constantly individuals, lives in concrete boxes and so on. I am not sure whether cancer is caused by pollution and low quality of pesticide and hormone filled food, but I am totaly sure that these propiciate cancer and other serious ilnesses and make it easier for it to survive. Why nobody pays real attention to the relationship between pollution (water, air, etc.) and cancer? Is it that people prefer to drive their petrol fed cars and remain into a self induced ignorance about the consequences of their behaviours? Isn't it worth seriously reducing or ending pollution for the sake of peoples and animals health?

    Please don't take vitamin B17 as it is not a vitamin as it has no Amine group. It has a cyano group in stead, which your body digests to form Cyanide. Many many clinical studies can be found with a 5min google search that demonstrate its toxicity.
