Stopping DNA damage

The body has many protective factors in place of stopping DNA damage before it begins, including sophisticated detoxification and excretion mechanisms; specialized cells that remove dead and damaged cells from the breasts; antioxidants and other nutrients that help the cell protect and repair DNA; and hormones such as progesterone, which encourages cells to differentiate and to die when they're supposed to. Cancer arises when they DNA in a cell is permanently damaged, and this escapes the body's normal detection systems. The damage is passed on from one generation of cells to the next, resulting in an accumulation of DNA-damaged cells without the proper controls needed to keep them normal.
