It seems like everywhere i look whether it be mainstream media or internet etc i hear about how such and such causes cancer and how overcooking meat or cooking it at high temp causes carcinogens wearing sunscreen causes cancer not wearing sunscreen causes cancer. Eating x and y causes cancer and partaking in such and such activity using such and such chemical/ingredient/product to groom cook etc causes cancer. Every step we take seems to cause it so is it unavoidable? Nowadays with the polluted world we live in is cancer inevitable? I hear about anti-nutrients antioxidants ratios of everything its just seeming overwhelming to find truth

I would suggest: Take the paleo/"natural" way as your default and then use your body's reactions to refine from there.
You can probably trust your body once you've entered into the basic paleo position, since your body will (we hope) no longer be telling you to compulsively consume sugar and watch television.
Don't wear sunscreen, but if your body tells you to get out of the sun (say, if being in the sun changes from being pleasant to being unpleasant) then get out of the sun. Don't make vegetables and fruits the caloric cornerstone of your diet, but do eat a variety of vegetables and fruits and find which ones you react well to. Cook your steaks in high heat, but don't cook them in vegetable oil; if something tastes funny to you start cooking them differently.
Apply to other areas of your life when necessary.
That's more or less the way I go about it, and it keeps my sane, or at least no one has told me I'm insane yet.

Of course it is good practice to try to reduce the overall amount of nasty stuff that goes into one's body, but the mainstream doesn't know about what happens on the inside. A carcinogen will cause a mutation of a cell but unless there is something hindering the protective process of apoptosis you will not get cancer since the cancer won't reach metastasis, it will be disposed of expediently. The seed oil and junky whole wheat products espoused by the mainstream will result in far more cancer cells than what's in your shampoo, it is inflammation and deficiency, and deficiency caused by inflammation, and inflammation caused by deficiency, and poor metabolic health caused by both, and both caused by poor metabolic health, and all of the other stuff we're pretty damn good on. It is all of that badness that will result in a malignant tumor. Those who have poor health are far more susceptible to exogenous carcinogens. That doesn't mean burn your food or drink paint (mmm) but I would be more concerned with what your hormones and your immune system is doing.

"The more you think about it, the worse it gets."

as my father always says "only in California" haha :p
but I agree, it is really distressing. Everywhere you turn something else causes cancer :\
