Lung Cancer

As we have learnt in previous posts Cancer is the disease caused by abnormal cells multiplying out of control. Normally, our body has a system to check and balance on cell growth so that cells divide to produce new cells, only when new cells are needed. When this system is disrupted it results in an uncontrolled division of cells that eventually forms a mass known as a tumor. Lung cancer is the most common cause of death due to cancer in both men and women throughout the world.

Many factors contribute in developing lung cancer, but the most common of them all is smoking. Lung cancer was not common before 1930s but increased dramatically over the following decades as tobacco smoking increased. The risk of lung cancer increases with the number of cigarettes smoked and the time over which smoking has occurred. We have learnt more on  Health risk related to smoking and the side effects of  Passive smoking from previous posts.

In exposed individuals air pollution can raise the likelihood of developing lung cancer and experts believe that prolonged exposure to highly polluted air can create a risk for the development of lung cancer similar to that of passive smoking.

As discussed in previous posts balance is the key. If you have enough antioxidants to balance the amount of free radicals produced, the body is protected from oxidative stress, and by preventing oxidative stress you can avoid developing cancer.

Antioxidants and their supporting nutrients also optimize your body’s natural repair system and natural immune system. So even if you have started down that road to developing a cancer, your body has the best opportunity to either repair or destroy that mutated cell.

Cancer facts has been explained in an interesting way, read and gain more knowledge.
