Question: How to Prevent Leukemia?

 happyfrog - Fri Jan 04, 2008 4:58 pm

I am doing a research project about leukemia. I have already gathered almost all the information about my topic, but I haven't found anything about preventing leukemia. Any information will be helpful. Thank you!

User avatar Leukemia is not one of the diseases we have learned can be prevented by any specific measures. The only thing we can do is take other measures for health and hope for the best. Most likely there is a genetic mutation component and we don't know who has it or how we can avoid it.

Good luck with your project.
