cancer and its prevention by natural ways

                                                                   Cancer

Cancer is one of the most dreaded diseases of the modern day world.

How can we prevent it?
The various way of preventing is listed below:
Ø  BY QUITTING SMOKING
Ø  BY REDUCING ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION
Ø  BY REGULAR EXERCISES
Ø  BY CHECKING WEIGHT GAIN
Ø  BY MAINTAINING POSITIVE ATTITUDE
Ø  BY AVOIDING CARCINOGENS
Ø  BY EAT PALEOLITHIC DIET
Ø  BY TAKING SUPPLEMENTS
Ø  BY USING HERBS
Ø  BY ENHANCING IMMUNE SYSTEM
Ø  BY REGULAR CANCER SCREENING


Now let us look into each of the above mentioned ways.

QUITTING SMOKING
Cigarettes smoking increases the level of free radical in the body .Free radical are very unstable and cause tissue damage these tissue damage are repaired by body.
 However  when the amount  free radical increase it cause more tissue damage than the body can repair thereby increasing the risk of cancer.
Cigarettes smoking increase the level of tar and its metabolite in body which are potent carcinogen increase the risk of cancer.

BY REDUCING ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION
1-2 drinks of alcohol a day can help protecting against cardiovascular disease thereby reducing the risk of heart disease, stroke.
However more than 2 drinks increase s the risk of cancer.

BY REGULAR EXERCISES
Regular exercise helps prevent several type of cancer including breast cancer. Even modest exercise boost y our immune system.

BY CHECKING WEIGHT GAIN
Obesity contributes to several types of cancer apart from heart disease, strokes, diabetes, so maintain a healthy weight and protect yourself against cancer.

BY MAINTAINING POSITIVE ATTITUDE.
Attitude affects immune system. Chronically depresses person get often sick and recover slowly. They also have higher death rates, including cancer.
Avoid carcinogens like cigarette smoking constant exposure to pollutants, pesticides and other toxic chemicals also raises cancer risk

BY EAT PALEOLITHIC DIET.
Diets of Stone Age ancestors were much healthier than one of todays.
It consist primarily of plant foods, fruits and vegetables or ancestors ate meat when they could get it was wild animal which contain less fat than red meat.
There diet was naturally high in fiber & low in fat especially the saturated fat found in most animal products and processed foods.
A study has shown that with increases in fruit and vegetable consumption of fruit and vegetable decrease in risk of cancer were seen.
Fruit and vegetable protect every form of the disease like lung, breast, and colon, prostrate.

What makes fruits and veggies such potent weapons against cancer?
Quite simple, they’re our best sources of antioxidant nutrient, antioxidants help prevent and even reverse the cell damage that set the stage for cancer as well as heart disease and other condition normally associated with aging.

Normal metabolic processes as well as dietary fat and carcinogens introduce highly unstable oxygen molecules called free radicals into your blood stream.

Free radical strives to stabilize themselves by gaining electrons. They do this by snatching electrons from other molecules that they encounter leaving behind a path of cell damage.
Usually your body’s immune system can repair this cell damage. But over time the free radicals, stabilizing the renegade molecules without producing additional cell damage.
 Some of the key antioxidant nutrients are vitamin C and E , the carotenoids,( including beta carotene) and the mineral selenium.

All fruits and vegetable contain generous amount of antioxidants.
 The oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) is high in food like ginger , kiwifruit, pink  grapefruit ,white grapes, cauliflower, and green tea.

ORAC score of 3000 to 5000 is required in daily. The only way to accomplish that is to eat lots more than 5 serving of vegetable and fruits a day.
Tomatoes: Tomatoes are rich in lycopene a member of the carotenoid family. Harvard researchers have found that eating just 2 serving of tomato based foods a week can reduce a man’s chances of developing of prostrate cancer by about one –third.eat more tomato rich foods, and risk drops even more. lycopene also inhibit mouth, throat, esophageal, stomach, rectal, and colon cancer.

Bean: soybean contains important compounds: genistein and diadzein. It help in preventing the growth of new blood vessel to nourish developing tumors. Tumor need blood supply. They use chemical signal to trick your body into growing new blood vessel for them a process called angiogenesis. So eat more beans, you reduce your risk of cancer.

Brazil Nuts: 3 Brazil nuts to get the 200 micrograms of selenium that is potent anti cancer effect.

BY TAKING SUPPLEMENTS

Supplements are recommended for cancer prevention is the anti oxidants: vitamins C and E, beta carotene, and the mineral selenium. Grapes seed extract  which is generously endowed with polyphenol, reveratrol, anthocynosides –all antioxidant compound.

Herbs

Garlic: Garlic contains diallyl sulfide which reduces the potency of nitrosamines, which are major class of carcinogens. It enhances the immunity help fight against many cancer like leukemia and melanomas.

Green tea: Green tea is potent antioxidant . 3 to 4 cups of green tea is effective in reducing chances of cancer. Use of 2 to 3 teaspoon of herb per cup in freshly boiled water. Steep for 10 minutes , then strain. Studies have shown that 95% of the herbs antioxidants pass into the water within 10 minutes.

Turmeric: it contain curcumin which as anti inflammatory action. Curcumin helps relieve in joint pain in people with osteoarthritis and sport injuries. It’s a natural COX 2 inhibitor.

So how does it work?
It inhibit neoangiogenesis in tumor cell which starve to death.

Lemon: It contain limonene a compound that’s potent cancer prevention.

BY ENHANCING IMMUNE SYSTEM

By taking measure that enhances immunity cancer can be prevented.
