According to the paper, 66% of cancerous mutations are random, 29% are preventable, and only 5% are genetic.

Humans want to believe we control our own destinies. If we exercise for 30 minutes every day, eat healthy, avoid cigarettes, alcohol, and drugs, meditate, and participate in the health trend du jour, it seems logical that we will live longer, be happier, and avoid diseases like cancer. Unfortunately, it seems fate is more chaotic than that. A new study published in Science suggests that most cancers are unavoidable. They're caused more often by bad luck than anything else.

It isn't "bad luck" or superstition that makes you more likely to get cancer. It's statistically-increased risk caused by inadequate government controls on pollution of our air, soil, crops, and water, of our cities, and our indoor spaces, of our energy industry, and so on ad nausium. It's the death by 1001 cuts to our immune systems. It's the myriad sources of industrial genotoxicity that now contaminate our world, at least for the "40 percent" of cancers that "are preventable" according OP article cited.
