Can the Incidence of Cancer be Reduced with Change of Lifestyle?

Introduction

People say cancer can be cured if detected earlier. In the later stage, the cancer cells from the source become mobile and move into other places in the body through the blood stream. This stage is called metastasis. When it happens, other regions in the body also get equally affected, sealing the way for complete recovery of the systems in it. The physicians would not be able to find the source of the disease as it is spread to more than one place. In such cases, the complete cure is not just possible, with the person succumbing to the secondary infections very easily. The fact of the matter is that the cancer does not kill the hosts on its own. The secondary infections do kill the patients in most cases. The opportunistic infections such as pneumonia and tuberculosis take the toll on the patients’ life.

The primary reason for its occurrence is the change in lifestyle and food habits. More youngsters are drawn to alcohol and smoking as they consider them as the status symbols. Due to the sedentary lifestyle at the workplace and home, people tend to become more obese. Despite the change of lifestyle, people still eat a lot of junk and fried foods. Due to these adverse changes in the lifestyle, the cancers affecting the liver, womb, mouth and skin have arisen.

  • Should Not Over Fry Food: When the food items are over fried, the constituents present in them get either charred to form carbonaceous particles or get changed to carcinogens.
