How to prevent cancer?

Practically everyone is unconsciously afraid of getting cancer. But it is really not possible to do something to minimize the chances of the appearance of the disease. Is it possible to prevent cancer, what preventive measures give and how much effort we will need to maintain our health - you need to know more.

Cancer - just the facts
The incidence of cancer in the world is increasing. The World Health Organization reports disappointing facts: today, every eighth inhabitant of the planet is dying from cancer. And this is not an epidemic: from 30 to 35% of tumors are caused by smoking, as much by harmful food.

 

The remaining causes are viruses, heredity, alcohol abuse, the impact of harmful production, radiation and pollution of the environment.
The term "cancer" hides more than 200 types of various tumors. Most often, people suffer from breast, colon and lung cancers.


Cancer mortality ranks second after deaths from diseases of the cardiovascular system.


Approximately 20% of people who suspect they have cancer do not go to doctors to confirm or deny the alleged diagnosis. Why? The reason is simple - fear.


Meanwhile, early diagnosis and timely treatment could save the lives of many - in the first stage, cancer is curable in most cases.


Cancer - how not to get sick?

 

We are often too frivolous about our health, although almost always the body itself signals problems and asks for help. And we are only brushing off - they say, it will pass by itself. But regular prevention helps to avoid many diseases, including cancer.


Be sure to pay attention to these symptoms:

  • you are worried about some new painful sensations of the internal organs;
  • sores or ulcers do not heal for a long time;
  • new moles and birthmarks appeared, and old ones changed their color, shape and size;
  • found nodules and lumps in the mammary gland;
  • there were some discharge (possibly bleeding) from the nose, vagina, rectum, the color of urine changed.

These symptoms do not necessarily indicate the appearance of a tumor, but they accurately indicate any problems in the body, some inflammatory processes.


There is such a thing - pretumor diseases. So - if you do not treat such diseases, the risk of getting cancer is significantly increased.


We do not like to go to the doctors, it is a fact. But if time does not identify the problem, then it may be too late. Do not postpone examinations at doctors, especially if something disturbs you.


Women over 40 need to undergo a mammogram at least once a year. A cytological smear is recommended every three years (check for cervical cancer). This analysis appeared 65 years ago and thanks to it, the mortality rate among women has decreased by 74%.


After 50 years, it is necessary for everyone to check the colon, you can start prophylaxis before: 1 time in 3 years to do a colonoscopy.


Prevention of gastric cancer is carried out with the help of gastroscopy (it is especially necessary to go through it if there is pain, loss of appetite, there is a sharp weight loss).

Smokers generally need to be constantly alert - there is a high risk of developing lung cancer. Even fluorography may not reveal the onset of cancer. Inveterate cigarette lovers need to do a chest tomography once every 3-5 years. There is also such a study - fibrobronchoscopy.
You should regularly check your body for viruses.The fact is that today there are several types of viruses that cause up to 15% of all tumors.
For example, human papillomavirus. The vaccine from it is recommended to do to girls from the age of 11 until the age of 26 years.
Hepatitis B and C viruses are responsible for almost 80% of cases of liver cancer. A vaccine against these viruses is the best prevention of the disease today.

 

Healthy lifestyle as a cancer prevention
Smoking - a solid "no!"Why consciously put yourself at risk for a terrible disease? Smokers seem to think that cancer will bypass them. And in vain, because more negative effects on the body than tobacco addiction, you will not find.

One may talk about healthy eating, weight loss, morning exercises, but for smokers these factors are secondary. The best cancer prevention is quitting smoking. Just think about these numbers - throat cancer in 90% of cases is caused by nicotine, lung cancer - in 75%.
Dangerous alcohol.The risk of cancer is increased in those who often apply to the bottle, especially those people face swelling of the throat, mouth, liver and mammary glands.
Those who can not give up alcohol, doctors advise - at least limit its use. It is permissible to drink no more than 50 g of strong alcoholic drink and 150-200 g of wine per day.

 

Weight control.The extra pounds of health have not been added to anyone yet. They are also dangerous in terms of oncology, an excess of body weight increases the likelihood of getting cancer.


Know what your waistline should be? Its girth in women is no more than 80 cm, in men it is 94 cm.


Rigid diets to lose weight avoid. It is better to balance your diet and eliminate harmful foods from your diet.
There is no hypodynamia!Excellent cancer prevention - regular exercise. Choose a complex that besides the benefit of the figure also gives you pleasure. Classes should like you, otherwise you probably will soon abandon them.
In general, you need to move as much as possible, light jogs and easy walks are useful. Do you like cycling, swimming, badminton, tennis, aerobics and even dancing? Great, do this more often and be sure that you are definitely reducing the risk of getting cancer.
Proper sunbathing.For some reason, many of us forget - our luminary is not only useful, the sun also causes various diseases.Life-giving rays stimulate the body to produce vitamin D, which is the prevention of breast cancer in women.

 

But for these purposes it is not necessary to fry under the scorching rays, 15-20 minutes of exposure to the sun will suffice.

But the desire to spend more time in the heat and get a beautiful tan fraught with burns. Imagine - skin cancer in 80% of cases occurs due to intense ultraviolet radiation.
 
Do not forget about sunblock creams and sunglasses. The headdress will not hurt at all.
Full sleep.At night, the body needs rest, and night shifts are harmful to health.


This is due to the production of melatonin, which regulates the cycles of falling asleep and awakening and increases the risk of developing breast cancer.
People who have trouble falling asleep need to fight insomnia. Chronic lack of sleep provokes many ailments, including an increased risk of cancer.
Vitamin B17. Many of us are unaware of the existence of an amazing substance capable of effectively fighting cancer.
Officially, medicine does not recognize vitamin B17(laetril, amygdalin) medicine for oncological diseases.

You can read about this alternative method in the book of the American writer Griffin, A World Without Cancer.
The healing vitamin contains the seeds of apricot, cherry, plum, peach, bitter almond. There is also in flax seed, in corn, millet, and apple seeds.
More positive.To live without stress, of course, is impossible. But trying to avoid chronic overwork and nervous conditions is helpful to everyone.
There is even a version that you can get cancer from a constant negativity in your life, when everything is bad, continuous problems and the machinations of detractors.

You can not believe that thoughts are material. But there is also quite medical evidence of the harm of persistent stress: they change the effect of immune cells, causing their mutation. A weakened immune system increases the risk of cancer.
To get involved in antidepressants is not an option. It is important psychological attitude, which will help to achieve meditation, auto-training and yoga.
Balanced diet. Scientific studies have shown that a healthy diet can prevent 3 out of 4 cases of colorectal cancer and 50% of breast cancer cases.

Restriction in the diet of high-calorie and salty foods:
exclude high-calorie foods (225-275 kcal per 100 g of product)
do not drink drinks with sugar content, give up fast food
limit the consumption of salty foods, eat no more than 6 g of salt per day
Herbal Products:
Include 5 servings (at least 400 g) of various vegetables and fruits in the daily ration
include cereal or legumes at every meal
 Animal products:
Do not consume more than 500 grams of red meat per week
eat fish at least 2 times a week: fat (sardines, salmon, trout) and white (flounder, haddock)
include in the diet rich in selenium foods: liver, kidney, seafood, eggs

Cancer prevention will be incomplete without the use of some products that are famous for their property to strengthen immunity from this disease: tomatoes, shiitake mushrooms, soybeans, broccoli, cauliflower, various varieties of onions and garlic, soy products, brown algae, citruses, tea (black and green).

Do not be afraid to get cancer. It is necessary to lead a lifestyle that minimizes the risks of developing cancer problems.It is unreasonable to hope for a miracle - it is better to treat your health with care, to undergo check-ups at the doctors in time.

 

Doctors claim that cancer detected at an early stage is treatable. Oncologists say that 90% of patients will live 5 years and more if they start fighting the disease in time.

Take care and be healthy.
