Today, more and more of the world’s population have cancer, but even the fact that cancer illness is widely spread and deadly, doctors have little idea about the reasons for causing cancer. One of the reasons which according us cause cancer are: medications, sunscreens and culprit as well as some jobs and bad lifestyle choices. However, according to a Canadian study, cancer is actually influenced by the food we consume, so it’s a lifestyle disease.
CURRENT FACTS ABOUT THE CANCER
Unfortunately, in the future, the cancer rate is expected to rise. According to some predictions, 1 from 2 women, and 1 from 3 men will suffer from cancer and may get cancer at some point of time by 2020. Today, cancer is so spread that is more likely to get this illness rather than get married and have a baby. These statistics are shocking because every year a million of dollars are spend for research of what cause the cancers as well as for the solutions for elimination cancer disease.
What is worst is that the cancer industries give to the patients chemotherapy which instead of killing and fighting against cancer, makes some tumors even more worse and spread, so the tumors become more aggressive than they were before the treatment. Chemotherapy is deadly treatment and this is the main reason why governments have been looking for safer, natural and alternative cancer treatment. However, the reasons for cancer’s cause still remain unknown and mysterious.
Although the cancer is widely spread, we can reduce the risk of getting cancer if we make changes into our lifestyle while factors of the environment are very high. According to a Canadian study, cancer rate is mostly linked to lifestyle. The study shows that 41% of the cancers cases are because of the environment or the lifestyle, so this means that these 41% may be eliminated.
A STUDY ABOUT CANCER IN CANADA
The Canadian cancer study shows the following details:
There are 24 risk factors that may cause cancer found in the population, these factors are: obesity and fatness, smoking cigarettes, inadequate diet ( inadequate intake of fruits and vegetables, a lot consumption of red meat, inadequate salt intake, inadequate intake of vitamin D and calcium), lack of physical activity, intake of alcohol, intake of hormones ( or a hormone therapy), infections( HPV, helicobacter pylori, hepatitis B and C) air pollution, ultraviolet radiation, water disinfection.
All these mentioned risk factors may be practiced by humans although they know their risk at causing cancer. Also, people can use foods that are closely related in causing cancer. If we add the environmental factor and the exercise we will see that there are lots of cancer causing things that we can avoid!
The Canadian cancer study also shows that:
Even 40.8% of incident cases of cancers were caused by the mentioned 24 factors ( Table 2). The factor that was the most responsible for causing cancer was tobacco smoking with 15.7% ( 2485 cases) , then follows the overweight and inadequate physical activity with 7.2%, and with 4.3% were the cases of incident cancer. The others exposure were responsible for less that 4.0% (1,6)
It’s a fact that we can prevent a lot of cancers, if we change our lifestyle choices and if the environment gives us its best. Our health is In our hands and we have more control of it than we know. From this point on, what should you do in order to protect you and your family from cancer?
