There are several forms of leukemia including some that develop quickly and others that form more slowly. Risk factors are not the same for all types, but they include smoking, exposure to radiation or toxic chemicals and having certain viral infections or a family history of leukemia.
In a study published in "Biologics: Targets and Therapy" in 2008, several chemicals from garlic caused apoptosis of cultured malignant cells taken from children with leukemia, while leaving normal cells uninjured.
