Understanding Cancer: Causes, Spread, and Control Measures is a brief work of non-fiction in the world of health and wellness, and was penned by author Rishikesh Ram Motilall. Following the full exploration of human biology and what science and medicine have taught us, the author encourages readers to approach the volume without viewing cancer as a disease, but rather a process which can and does occur as part of our own biology. The volume goes on to explain these cell mutations and why they may happen, as well as looking at measures to control them and prevent their spread when they do.

Any book which begins with the statement that there will never be a cure for cancer is one to persevere with because the explanations provided by author Rishikesh Ram Motilall are actually a lot more helpful and hopeful than they might first appear. Whilst many of us fear cancer and see it as a beast that we may eventually have to fight off, the process of cell division, as explained here in Motilall’s excellent wordage, is actually a natural and normal occurrence. This work is well organized in its explanation of the nature of cancer, not as a disease but a malfunction within our own cells and the processes by which we control its impact and spread are also very well explained for laymen to understand. Overall, Understanding Cancer: Causes, Spread, and Control Measures is an accurate scientific work that dispels many myths and gives clear concise information.

Rishikesh Ram Motilall’s Understanding Cancer: Causes, Spread, and Control Measures offers a brief, straightforward explanation of what cancer is. The book begins by breaking down the components of a human body from cells, organs, and systems. It goes on to explain the workings of a cell and the process of adaptation, a process that is quickened by modification and change of the environment. It then explains the process of cell fission and how cancer results from the growth and propagation of cells that result from abnormal cell fission. By explaining how an element such as an artificial sweetener or sunscreen affects the body, the book explores how industrial effects, current products, and procedures such as genetic engineering, growth hormones, synthetic medication, and pesticides have a considerable impact on the functioning of cells and organs.

Understanding Cancer by Rishikesh Ram Motilall begins by explaining how the body works which provides a foundation for the rest of the work. The language remains straightforward as it avoids jargon, hence the discussions contained can be easily understood. The work is short and to the point. It remains focused on the topic. Though explanations are brief, the work is still comprehensive. For instance, in explaining the effect of man’s modification of certain products on the body, the work uses artificial sweeteners to explain this impact which gives an overview of the effects similar products have on the body. Understanding Cancer is an essential work that provides any reader, despite their lack of knowledge on the topic, with a clear and extensive explanation of what causes cancer, how cancer spreads in the body and how it can be controlled.

Understanding Cancer: Causes, Spread, and Control Measures by Rishikesh Ram Motilall is comprehensive and relevant information on the anatomy of cancer as a disease, its causes, and its prevention. It gives us a microscopic examination of the complex multicellular beings that comprise our system and how they relate to one another to moderate bodily functions and how imbalance can tip the scale between well-being and illness. Mr. Motillal points out that our body’s internal mechanisms, like cell division, can incur errors in reproduction. While the human body is a marvel of engineering, the intricate interrelationships between our organs and systems can generate a loss of equilibrium. It leads us to understand that every living cell in our body has the potential for developing into cancer and that this potential has existed since the development of early life.

The concept of causation has always played a role in the application of epidemiologic evidence for controlling cancer. Numerous examples have been identified and have been applied to prevention. Understanding Cancer: Causes, Spread, and Control Measures by Rishikesh Ram Motilall gives a fascinating overview of causal inference complemented with a focus on metastasis and intervention. Mr. Motillal includes emerging issues concerned with other factors contributing to the development of the disease as well as methodologies that assist in remission. But it doesn’t stop there. One piece of good news that Understanding Cancer brings is that our body’s electrochemical system is driven by our mood to trigger our natural mechanism for healing; a positive mood helps to cultivate positive signals that help our body perform at its peak. Our temperament carries weight in preventing this morbid disease—an evidence-based intervention that we can all put into practice.

Understanding Cancer: Causes, Spread, and Control Measures by Rishikesh Ram Motilall is a very informative book that provides useful information about cancer. In this book, the author explains the causes of cancer, how it develops and the right way to keep it in check. Like most readers, I have always thought of cancer as a disease, but this book proved the contrary. The author explains that there can be no permanent cure or total eradication of cancer, and while there can be proliferation control, tissue removal, “forced stagnation, and spread control,” it can never be eradicated as a disease.

Rishikesh Ram Motilall explains the process by which cells replicate themselves and how cell replication or fission can lead to cancer. Cells replicate themselves in the fight to preserve life and ensure survival, and when the conditions are abnormal, the cell will fight to propagate, adjust, or adapt. It is in this context that cancer cells eventually get formed and the author explains the process in language that is simple and clear. Rishikesh Ram Motilall explains human biology and delves into the behavior of the human cell. Readers will understand how their body functions when they read this book and I found material that was both surprising and stunning. I’d never thought of cancer as resulting from a growth process or as the cell’s fight for survival.

This book explains how human cells function and the conditions within which they evolve into cancerous cells and how to control and stop the growth. This book is an eye-opener for non-medical professionals and readers who want to understand cancer. Understanding Cancer: Causes, Spread, and Control Measures is easy to comprehend. It reads like a very well-developed essay on a topic that is important to every living soul.

Understanding Cancer: Causes, Spread, and Control Measures by Rishikesh Ram Motilall is a non-fiction educational and self-help book on the titular topic. Taking a blended philosophical and scientific standpoint, Motilall breaks down what cancer actually is on a cellular level, and how our bodies and environment respond to the nature of the abnormal and adverse cells. The book is written in a format that reads similarly to a thesis, with arguments for and against each piece of information Motilall puts on the page. There are no chapters, which gives the manuscript more weight as a dissertation than a book, heavily driven by the science of cellular biology.

Understanding Cancer is an interesting read, particularly for someone who has seen it ravage their own family. Rishikesh Ram Motilall does an excellent job of taking a highly complex topic and breaking it down into layman's terms. For me, the most interesting part was on the role that food preservatives play in creating conditions that encourage adverse cells to grow. I knew very little about organ and cell confusion that are the result of chemical preservatives and so that was a massive eye-opener for me. I believe this book will be well received by those in the medical community, families, and individuals who are grappling or have grappled with cancer themselves, and all who have a general interest in the subject as a whole.
