Perfectly healthy is perfectly all right for a cancer prevention study. If you haven’t been diagnosed with cancer, the American Cancer Society (ACS) wants you as a new recruit. They’re undertaking a cancer prevention study that’s looking to enroll half a million men and women between the ages of 30 and 65 in the U.
