Smoking Are No The Only Lung Cancer Triggerer

Lung cancer triggers not only because of smoking. A number of carcinogenic substances such as asbestos, arsenic, chromate, nickel, chloromethyl ether, radiation, and pollution also can cause lung cancer.


About 90 percent of cases of lung cancer in men and 70 percent in women are due to smoking habits. The more smoke of cigarettes enter the lung, the greater the risk for lung cancer. The cause is because tobacco smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals, and most are carcinogenic and cause cancer.


Two major carcinogenic substances in cigarette tobacco are nitrosamines and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. However, cigarette is not the only cause of lung cancer.

Many who inhaled substances in the workplace which are carcinogenic. For example, asbestos, arsenic, chromate, nickel, chloromethyl ethers, mustard gas, and coke oven emission and radiation can cause lung cancer.

Soy against 2 cancer, prostate and breast cancer

In addition to flavor our food, soy may also help in the battle against two types of cancer: the breast and the prostate. To detect the two studies were reported by British newspaper the Daily Mail. The first ‘was conducted by a team of researchers at the University of Chicago Northwestern. The results ‘showed that one pill a day of’ genistein ‘, the main isoflavone found in soy, and’ able to slow or stop the spread of prostate cancer.


Although the study involved a small sample of 38 men, scientists believe that these results could lead to the first non-toxic treatment that prevents the movement of cancer cells.

“The first step – said Raymond Bergan, who led the study – and ‘was to see if the drug has the desired effect on the cells and the prostate, and the answer’ it was ‘. If this drug can’ effectively prevent prostate cancer can spread throughout the body, such therapy could theoretically have the same effect on the cells of other types of cancer. “


The second study ‘pro-soy’ and ‘was conducted by the University’ of Buffalo (New York) and involved nearly 1,300 women. The results’ showed that soy isoflavones may reduce the risk of developing breast cancer. Researchers have found that women who consumed more ‘isoflavones have a 30 percent chance’ to be less affected by invasive breast cancer and 60 per cent chance ‘in less than developing cancer’ low degree ‘.


To arrive at these conclusions, the scientists compared the data of 683 women with breast cancer with 611 healthy women. “We have definitely seen – said Anne Weaver, who led the study – a reduction (risk) that deserves further investigation.”

Zafgen diet pills originally developed to treat solid tumors in cancer cases

The active ingredient used in the diet pill of Zafgen (ZGN, 433) was originally developed by a South Korean pharmaceutical (CKD Pharmaceuticals) to treat solid tumors in cancer cases. It works by increasing the breakdown of fat. Zafgen CKD Pharmaceuticals has bought the exclusive rights to use ZGN-433 in the world (except South Korea).


Various scientific studies have suggested that the more overweight you become, the more your body will struggle to change its composition because the body becomes “programmed” to produce and store more fat. This makes the body less sensitive to the insulin hormone (a hormone that helps us to fight against excess weight because it encourages the body to burn fat). 


The researchers say that the Zafgen ZGN-433 diet pill blocks an enzyme called MetAP2. This enzyme is harmful because it prevents many genes that are important to function properly. This enzyme MetAP2 indirectly promotes insulin resistance, excessive fat, inflammation, various health problems related to obesity. In fact, scientists believe their Zafgen drug works because it resets the way the body metabolizes fat.

Decrease Your Risk Of Cancer With Green Tea


green-tea-cancer



The majority people are frightened rigid of cancer disease. That is fairly reasonable – nobody wants to waste a couple of years having chemotherapy just to pass away a few years later? Or yet if you get well it is a couple of years out of your existence that have been upsetting and punishing. And not just for the patient but for associates and family too.

So, most people do the whole lot they capable of to decrease the risks of developing cancer. Many of us don’t think we recognize how to do this, while other people are not certain, but they have listened to or read a bit that sounds ‘about right’ and other people are assured that they know how to avoid having cancer.

My relatives are persuaded that I might obtain cancer from consumption of burnt toast and others are convinced that they can ward off cancer by saturating their flesh with green tea. It has frequently been said out and for decades too, that countries where green tea is the norm, say the Far East, have a large amount of lower occurrence of cancer than we do in the West.
