Here you will find out what can cause cancer.
†††††† Although there are many things that are thought to cause
cancer, like cellular phones, there are only two things that cause cancer often
and have been proven to do so. These are smoking and rapid dieting.
About 30% of all
cancer-related deaths in America are caused solely by smoking, making it the
biggest cancer-related killer. Smoking creates carcinogens (chemicals) in your
body that damage and mutate genes, which in turn, form what is commonly known
as a tumor. Getting a tumor from smoking has a bigger chance of being
cancerous, since there are a lot of mutated genes in a smokersí body. Smoking
(especially smoking cigarettes, because of the usersí likeliness to smoke a
pack a day) can cause any and every type of cancer, but the following are the
most common: lungs, diaphragm (a muscle that aids in breathing), esophagus
(food tube), trachea (wind pipe), bladder, pancreas, stomach, liver, colon,
rectum, and kidneys. Take note that the younger you are when you start smoking,
the greater risk youíre at. Smoking at a young age makes you twice as likely to
get cancer in the bladder, but eight times more likely to get cancer in a lung.
Passive smoke, or second-hand smoke, is not as cancer-causing as active
smoking. But contrary to this fact, thousands of people die from passive smoke
each year. The yearly deaths due to second-hand smoke is equal to the deaths of
outdoor air pollution.
Diet is the only cause of
cancer that is even remotely close to tobacco smoke. Red meat in particular is
cancer-causing. It can normally give someone cancer in the colon or the rectum.
IF you diet and eat meat, your chances of getting cancer are greatly increased.
Thatís basically all there is to know about dieting. There is a lot of other
information about cancer and dieting, but these ideas are always being changed
and denied. So basically, this information is what most scientists and doctors
