Organization (WHO) lays out cancer causes
as: physical carcinogens (such as ultraviolet and ionizing radiation),
carcinogens (such as asbestos, components of tobacco smoke, food &
drinking water contaminants) and biological carcinogens (such as
from certain viruses, bacteria or parasites).
Physical and chemical
carcinogens are tied to our
choices like - where we live, quality of air we breathe, the food we eat,
we drink and anything else we allow into our bodies.
The majority of our food and water has been
tainted with chemicals before reaching us. Our meats stocks are shot with steroids and antibiotics,
sprayed with pesticides and preservatives, and our water supplies are
with chemicals. Our bodies have become
the end user and storage for all of these toxins. A 2005
study by the Center for Disease Control found 148 chemicals in the
urine of average Americans. A more
recent study a 2008 by the Environmental Working Group found 232
pollutants in the umbilical cords of newborn infants.

of the overall cancer cases could be more effectively treated with
detection. Early detection is usually a product of screening
personal vigilance for signs of cancer. Screens like mammograms
pap-smears are where doctors pre-empt the physical signs of cancer and
on a molecular level to find any cancerous or pre-cancerous cells. Screens are the first level of
detection and personal detection is the next level.
Recognizing cancer signs like lumps, sores,
bleeding or persistent coughing can help doctors to catch the cancer in
early stages. Both of these practices provide the optimal chance
defeating the cancer before it grows stronger in the body.
