The Website:  contains many informative articles and a “Challenge” for those keen to do practical things towards reducing Cancer.

Oral Cancer still has a poor prognosis due to a late diagnosis in many cases.

A regular dental check up includes review of soft tissues which enables early detection of any changes. Also noting any smoking habit, alcohol intake and fresh fruit and veggies intake and herpes infections as risk factors for oral cancer.

Another challenge is “ Close the Care Gap”, which provides details on the gaps in care available for different communities. For example in Australia Rural communities have much less access to specialised medical services than city folk.
