What is the top three main cause??™s of cancer Explain
The top main three main causes of cancer are:
??? Dietary Imbalances
??? Chronic infections leading to Chronic Inflammation
Why the three main does causes cancer
Smoking causes cancer by:
??? Smoking cause cancer by ingredients known as carcinogens. Carcinogen literally means “cancer-causing.” Cigarettes also contain nicotine, but this is not what causes cancer. Nicotine is the substance in cigarettes that one becomes addicted to. The other cigarette ingredients are what make it deadly. Tar is one of the many carcinogenic substances found in cigarettes. Tar contains over 4,000 chemicals. Over 60 of those chemicals are known carcinogens, all of which are deadly. On the list of carcinogens in cigarettes are:
Cyanide: Poisonous to brain and heart.
Benzene: Used to make plastic and rubber products.
Formaldehyde: Used to preserve dead bodies and body parts.
Methanol: Wood alcohol.
Ammonia: Used as a cleaning agent and to fertilize crops.
Acetylene: Used to fuel welding torches.
??? When a cigarette is lit, all the chemicals in it react with one another in such a way that alters the way a healthy cell behaves. Healthy cells grow, make new cells and then die. Cells grow faster during childhood, but this process slows down by the time we reach adulthood. By then, most cells in the body are made only to take the place of the ones that die. However, carcinogens affect a cells DNA, causing damage that causes the cells to behave differently. The damaged DNA in cancer cells is not fixed and causes cells to grow and make new cells in a way that is not orderly and healthy, but out of control. The damaged cells make new damaged and unhealthy cells that can spread throughout the body causing death and disease.
Dietary Imbalances causes cancer by:
??? Excess fat and calories; inadequate intake of fruits, vegetables, fiber, and calcium
??? Eating inappropriate foods causes cancer, because subtle biochemical injuries occur in tissues when we eat a diet that is deficient in fruits and vegetables, and contains excess sugar, vegetables oils (soybean, corn oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil, peanut oil and cottonseed oil), and trans fats found in nearly all packaged food and deep fried foods like french fries. The associated with a poor diet can initially occur without symptoms, so it is very subtle. However, over time, this chronic, initially symptom-free, diet-driven inflammation can lead to the chronic diseases that plague modern man, causing chronic aches, cancer, pains and endless suffering.
??? More than half of those natural pesticides tested in high dose animal tests are rodent carcinogens. There are about 10,000 or so different natural pesticides in our diet, and they are usually present at enormously higher levels than synthetic pesticides.
??? Cooking food also generates thousands of chemicals. There are over 1000 chemicals reported in a cup of coffee. Only 26 have been tested in animal cancer tests and more than half are rodent carcinogens; there are still a thousand chemicals left to test. The amount of potentially carcinogenic pesticide residues consumed in a year is less than the amount known of rodent carcinogens in a cup of coffee.
Chronic infections leading to Chronic Inflammation cause cancer by:
??? Hepatitis B and C viruses, Helicobacter pylori infection, schistosomiasis, etc..
??? Chronic inflammation is a major cause of cancer in the world because it releases powerful oxidants which both stimulate cell division and are mutagens.
??? Two factors are critical in the formation of mutations: lesions in DNA, formed when DNA is damaged, and cell division, which converts DNA lesions to mutations. Agents increasing either lesions or cell division increase mutations and as a consequence increase cancer incidence. Hormones stimulating cell division increase cancer incidence.
What type of cancer the three main causes
??? Lung cancer is the most common type of cancer associated with smoking. However, cancer of the larynx, mouth, throat, bladder and esophagus are all very common forms of cancer that are directly caused by cigarette smoke. Also, cancers of the kidney, stomach, pancreas and even a form of leukemia are linked with, though not directly caused by, smoking.
Dietary Imbalances causes:
??? Breast cancer (levels of estrogen) and Prostate cancer (level of testosterone).
Chronic infection leading to Chronic Inflammation causes:
??? The hepatitis B and hepatitis C viruses, which infect the liver and are closely associated with liver cancer
??? Several human papilloma viruses (HPV) have been implicated in causing cervical cancer.
What is the percentage of the three main cancer causes
Smoking Percentage is:
Dietary Imbalances Percentage is:
Chronic infections leading to Chronic Inflammation Percentage is:
Can the cancers be treated or cured
??? Lung cancer can be treated.
??? Breast cancer can be cured.
??? Prostate cancer can be treated.
??? Liver cancer can sometimes be cured but treated.
Cervical cancer is more likely to be cured once detected early
