Cancer prevention and treatment

 

People are scared of cancer . What is even more alarming is that more and more cancer patients are found now. Malignant tumors are so close to us. The society has already talked about carcinogenesis. How to prevent cancer, greatly reduce the risk of cancer, but mostly at a loss. Professor Li Aimin, vice president of Guangzhou Cancer Society and vice president of Integrative Medicine Center of Southern Medical University, said: vigilance on daily carcinogenic factors, chemical and biological factors can not be underestimated, and change or avoid the main risk factors, more than 30% Cancer can be prevented.

 

Be wary of carcinogenic chemicals in everyday life

 

In our country, cancer has become the leading cause of death and morbidity and mortality are still rising. Cancer has become a very important public health issue. According to the 2015 China Cancer Statistics, China reported 4.292 million new cases of cancer and 2.81 million cases of cancer deaths last year. The causes of cancer include both internal and external factors. External causes refer to various possible carcinogenic factors in the surrounding environment, including chemical carcinogenic factors, physical carcinogenic factors, biological carcinogenic factors and various chronic stimuli. The high incidence of cancer is closely related to the environment and times in which we live. There has never been an era Like now, a variety of synthetic chemicals flooded every corner of our lives. Looking around our home, we have added dozens of artificial chemicals to home decor, food packaging, tap water, air, vegetables, fruits, all kinds of meat, bath shampoo products, and more.

 

Professor Li Aimin from Southern Medical University Cancer Center pointed out that we should avoid contact with and ingestion of chemical compounds in our life, including smoking, tar in automobile exhaust, nitrosamines in pickled foods, , Moldy food aflatoxin and a variety of industrial raw materials in arsenic, chromium, nickel, molybdenum and other heavy metals and so on. In addition, you should stop smoking, limit alcohol, avoid sun exposure, do not intake barbecue, smoked, mildew and fried food, pay attention to cleaning the vegetables and fruits of pesticide residues, eat less hormones and antibiotics, meat, milk, Chemicals that may cause cancer in your home are removed.

 

Professor Li Aimin pointed out that a balanced dietary nutrition, increase nutritional supplements, enhance the body's antioxidant system and immunity, these are important means of prevention of cancer. We usually can eat more fruits and vegetables juice, it can clean the stomach, clear blood, but also promptly help us eliminate toxins.

 
Tumors and viruses and other biological factors are closely related

 

According to Professor Li Aimin, in addition to carcinogenic factors related to the chemical and physical factors surrounding our environment, there are many tumors that are closely related to biological factors such as viruses, including molds, bacteria, viruses and parasites. Such as human T-cell leukemia virus (HTLV) and leukemia, sarcoma, lymphoma , breast cancer and so on; herpes simplex virus-2 and human papillomavirus associated with the incidence of cervical cancer ; Epstein-Barr virus and nasopharyngeal carcinoma , multiple B cells Lymphoma and infectious mononucleosis related to the incidence of various hepatitis viruses and primary liver cancer , hepatitis, cirrhosis , liver cancer isHepatitis B trilogy, but also other hepatitis trilogy. The gastric cancer and H. pylori infection is closely related.

 

The current scientific evidence that cancer is preventable, Professor Li Aimin pointed out that by changing or avoiding the main risk factors, more than 30% of the cancer can be prevented. For example by hepatitis B vaccine, HPV (human papilloma virus) vaccine, abstinence to avoid multiple sexual partners, stay away from drugs, prevention of hepatitis B virus, HPV, HIV ( AIDS virus) infection. The implementation of sub-meal system can help prevent HP infection. Avoiding unnecessary blood transfusions and the use of blood products can reduce the risk of contracting the virus. In addition, the infection of Schistosoma japonicum, Schistosoma japonicum, Schistosoma tuberculosis may cause cancer, which requires us to pay attention to food hygiene, do not eat cold, undercooked food, from the beginning to avoid illness from the mouth. Chinese Classic Huang Di Nei Jing also mentions: "The Sage has not been cured, the disease has not been cured; the disorder has been chaos, the cure has not been chaos." It can be seen that the importance of preventing cancer and early prevention is an important guarantee for patients to obtain long-term survival or cure.

 

Expert advice

 
Good anti-cancer habits

 

About 30% of cancers come from five major behavioral and dietary risk factors: high body mass index, low fruit and vegetable intake, lack of exercise, tobacco use and alcohol consumption. Obesity, lack of exercise, excessive intake of alcohol are risk factors for cancer. Therefore, Professor Li Aimin made a few suggestions:

 

Reasonable diet: drink less sugary drinks, high intake of fat, high sugar and low-fiber foods, eat fruits and vegetables; avoid or minimize the processing of processed meat products, that is, added nitrite varieties.

 

Regular exercise: exercise at least 30 minutes a day. The study reports that postmenopausal women who have regular exercise habits have a 20% lower prevalence of breast cancer. Every 1-inch increase in waist circumference increases the risk of cancer by more than 8 times.

 

Avoid excessive alcohol consumption: excessive alcoholic drinks lead to a variety of cancers (such as mouth, pharynx, larynx, esophagus, colorectal, breast) occurred. In addition, cancer survivors should also be "disciplined."

 

Maintain a good living habits: clean oneself to avoid multiple sexual partners, stay away from drugs, reduce the risk of adverse infections caused by bad living. All cancer survivors (people who recover) must follow advice on diet, health, weight, and exercise. To achieve a reasonable diet, regular exercise and to ensure normal weight and develop good habits, we can avoid 30% -40% of the incidence of cancer.
