Live right to stop Cancer
It is indeed depressing to witness a rapid increase in the cancer incidence and deaths in recent years. Often many people do not recognize the symptoms of cancer in its initial stages and deteriorate the symptoms to the extent where it is almost incurable. But it is more unfortunate that many people even after noticing some unusual changes in their body hesitate and are scared of consulting a doctor making the scenario worse. The chance to increase the life expectancy of a cancer patient is to diagnose it early and start the therapies as early as the first stage of cancer.

The probable cause, the risk factors and the age for developing cancer is not limited. Heredity, exposure to harmful UV rays, exposure to certain chemicals, faulty dietary habits and lack of proper physical activity, drug abuse and even microorganisms may increase the risk for developing cancer. Lack of education is one thing but ignoring the probable factors and faulty lifestyle behaviors is totally our lack of responsibility towards our health. Urban living is certainly taking its toll in increasing the incidence of cancer and other lifestyle diseases like hypertension, diabetes, heart diseases, etc. Simple preventive actions can reduce some of the risk factors that may be responsible in causing cancer.

Indiadiets team steps ahead to help you in taking care of your family’s health and surroundings.

The best measure to prevent or fight cancer is to take charge of the following:

Environment: Pollution is known to be one of the contributors for cancer, for example, pesticides in farming, industrial water and fumes, smokes coming out of vehicle, etc. The way to protect ourselves is by cautious selection of our food, driving environment friendly vehicle and by living in the area relatively away from industrial exposure. Make sure of the cleanliness and safety of drinking water supply. Stay indoors as much as you can.

Diet: A diet rich in fat especially saturated and trans fat can be a contributor to cancer. The younger generation swaps green leafy vegetables, dietary fibre and whole foods for fast, packaged, heat-and-eat food which may contain carcinogenic additives and preservatives. Choose fresh, organic and natural foods as far as possible. Ensure to read label before selecting any packaged product. Go for lots of fresh fruits and colored vegetables as they are the natural sources of antioxidants and phytochemicals that help in fighting the toxins and carcinogens.

Lifestyle: Tobacco is a major contributor to head and neck cancers. It can affect other organs as well. Smoking is a major cause of lung cancers. Passive smoking is known to expose person to non-small cell lung cancers. Avoiding breastfeeding is counter-productive as is the use of unhygienic sanitary napkins (exposure to infection and cervical cancers). Certain oral contraceptive pills (OCPs) and hormone replacement therapies (HRTs) can make patients vulnerable to cancer (although recent studies have actually proved the opposite). Delayed age of conception and obesity are also considered risk factors. So stop smoking and chewing tobacco, go for any medication with permission from a registered medical practitioner, stay fit, healthy and stress free by adapting to some physical activity routine and meditation.

Most importantly it is be your own scrutinizer to keep a check on your external body changes and internal symptoms. Any usual illness like flu, cough and cold, diarrhea, constipation, menstrual changes, skin pigmentation, unusual feeling of fatigue or restlessness, etc if elongated should not be ignored and should immediately get diagnosed by an experienced doctor. More so every individual must make it a habit to go for a periodic health check-up after the age of 40.
