Many cancer causing mutations are attributed to inheritance and environmental factors. Errors associated with DNA replication may also play a prominent role in cancer development. There are opportunities for DNA replication mistakes at every cell division. These mutations can accumulate and cause uncontrolled cell division that can lead to cancer development. Cancer is more common in tissues that divide often. For example, colon cells divide more frequently and are likely to introduce random DNA replication mistakes. In contrast, lung cancer is more likely associated with mutations influenced by environmental factors, making it less prevalent. As we age, the risk of cancer due to random DNA replication mistakes may increase.

Previously, mice genetically modified to destroy their own senescent cells have shown a reduced buildup of plaque and increased longevity. Researchers have now developed a FOXO4 peptide that selectively induces apoptosis in only senescent cells.

Colorectal cancers (CRC), often considered a disease of aging, have been declining in older adults yet there has been a sharp rise in diagnosis in young adults. Widespread screening, including colonoscopies for people over 50, have been contributed to a decline in cancer rates. Screening tests can detect polyps that can be removed before cancer develops. Experts attribute the lower cancer rates in the older population to screening and lifestyle changes including healthier diets and not smoking. Diets associated with less red and processed meat, more fruit and vegetables, and fiber are linked with reduced risk of developing cancer.
