About yCancer Foundation
Our main goal is to answer the question of who gets cancer and why. So that we can help.
We conduct cutting-edge research on cancer causes and share findings with the public to give people information and practical tools to prevent cancer.
We want to live in the world where people have the knowledge and therefore power to protect themselves from cancer and to make informed decisions about their lifestyle, nutrition choices and medical treatments. Knowledge brings long life and happiness!
Our mission is to eliminate cancer in the United States and Worldwide through research on cancer causes and risk factors, public education in cancer prevention, advocacy, and services to the community.
Our Cancer Research
We are a group of scientists and volunteer-supporters dedicated to understanding how people's everyday activities, environment, medications, diet and other factors play a role in cancer risk.
We gather cancer data from hospitals, local and world leading global health organizations, and add it to our database. Next, our top-notch specialists investigate those cases, perform a statistical analysis of the data and establish reliable and valid conclusions and recommendations. Finally, we develop and implement algorithms and systems that clearly and efficiently convey the information to the public at yCancer.org via statistical graphics, plots, information graphics and more.
Scientists of yCancer Foundation created one-of–a-kind database for medications and supplements, which have been reported to cause cancer.
www.yCancer.org is the only resource in the World that provides information about the correlation between specific medications and types of cancers caused by those medications.
Using our "Search a Medication for Carcinogenic Reports" functionality located on the Home Page people can find out what types of cancers and how many cases are associated with particular medications or supplements.
