Types and Causes of Cancer

Cancer is one of a large number of diseases characterized by the development of abnormal cells that divide uncontrollably. This type of disease can infiltrate and destroy normal body tissue. Cancer often can spread throughout your body. 

Cancer is known to be the second-leading cause of death in the world. On the other hand, survival rates are improving for various types of cancer. Luckily, there are improvements in cancer screening, treatment, and prevention. 

Types of Cancer 

Cancer is not just one disease but rather a group of diseases, all of which cause cells in the body to change and grow out of control. Cancers are classified either according to the kind of fluid or tissue from which they originate or according to the location in the body where they first developed. In addition, some cancers are of mixed types. Here are some types of cancer:

  • Bladder Cancer
  • Breast Cancer
  • Cervical Cancer
  • Colorectal Cancer
  • Kidney Cancer
  • Liver Cancer
  • Ovarian Cancer
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Skin Cancer
  • Thyroid Cancer
  • Uterine Cancer

What Causes Cancer?

Cancer is caused by changes to the DNA within cells, called mutations. The DNA inside a cell is packed into a huge number of individual genes. Each has a set of instructions telling the cell what functions to perform, as well as how to grow and divide. Mistakes in the directions may cause the cell to stop its normal function and may allow a cell to become cancerous. 

Risk Factors of Cancer 

Factors known to increase your risk of cancer include:

  • Your habits: Certain lifestyle choices are known to increase your risk of cancer. Smoking, excessive exposure to the sun, having unsafe sex, and being obese can contribute to cancer. 
  • Your health conditions: Some chronic health conditions can markedly increase your risk of developing certain cancers. Talk to your doctor about your risk.
  • Your environment: Your environment may contain harmful chemicals that can increase your risk of cancer. Chemicals in your home or workplace also are associated with an increased risk of cancer.

Considering Diet to Prevent Cancer 

One of the risk factors of cancer is being obese. Obesity is a condition in which a person has an unhealthy amount and distribution of body fat. Obese people often have chronic low-level inflammation which can over time, cause DNA damage that leads to cancer. Obese individuals are more likely than normal-weight individuals to have conditions that are linked to or that cause chronic local inflammation and that are risk factors for certain cancers.

To prevent cancer, you may consider having a certain diet plan. HCG Diet is a 30-day protocol that administers a daily HCG injection in conjunction with a low-calorie, lean and clean diet. Here are some of the benefits if you use HCG:

  • HCG works quickly
  • It is safe because it is not a dangerous weight-loss drug
  • Helps you lose fat where you need it the most
  • Changes your lifestyle
  • Reduce Blood Pressure
  • Reduce Diabetes
  • Fewer Palpitations
  • Increased Stamina
  • Reduced Cholesterol Level
  • Keeps People Active
  • Helps Sleep
