How does any carcinogen cause cancer?
How does radiation cause cancer?
What are the effects of natural foods on a person who already has cancer?
Many carcinogens and radiation are thought to cause cancer by
causing breaks or other problems with the DNA molecules in the
cell. This seems to cause the normal mechanisms that control
the rate of cell division to go out of control. Chemical
carcinogens have a structure that allows them to slip between
the units of a DNA molecule and do this.
