30 of the most dangerous things that scientists believe cause cancer

To work as a hairdresser is extremely dangerous!

Cancers are in second place in the list of leading causes of death in the United States. They are ahead of only diseases of the cardiovascular system, writes Business Insider.

In the human body is constantly having damaged cells. But the body’s defense mechanisms are able to identify and destroy them. Disease occurs when this mechanism is weakened and unable to cope.

To degenerate into a cancer, a damaged cell takes from five to forty years. This happens due to mutations in the genes (radiation, environmental toxins, carcinogens).

If a person has a genetic predisposition to a particular type of cancer, to prevent tumor almost impossible. But the disease can be defer.

Science has long known that certain foods and substances that surround us, increase the risk of developing cancer.

Here are 30 things that you should be careful of those who are watching their health or has a poor heredity:

1) Sugar.

The passion for sweet leads not only to diabetes but also cancer. It has long been known that sugar stimulates the growth of malignant tumors in the body – from sweet to be getting power.

2) Processed products.

Those are the products that have passed one or several stages of processing from the standpoint of food engineering. Processing increases shelf life, improves appearance and speeds up the cooking time.

They contain huge amounts of sugar, which feeds cancer cells.

Interestingly, the average resident of developed and developing countries 50% gets no sugar from sweets, and processed products such as sauces, convenience foods, canned goods, etc., as well as drinks.

3) Smoking.

Tobacco smoke contains at least 70 chemicals that can cause cancer. And this applies not only to active smokers but also passive – that is, those who breathe cigarette smoke.

According to the Center for control and prevention of disease, passive Smoking increases the risk of developing lung cancer by 20-30%. At risk are also those who use chewing tobacco.

4) and the lack of Tan on the skin sunscreen.

According to the skin cancer Foundation, young people to 35 years old who visit the Solarium, the risk of developing melanoma increases by 75%.

Avoid intensive solar radiation, it can harm you, cover exposed areas of the body, apply sunscreen, try is in the shade, especially if you have to be outside in hot weather for more than 15 minutes.

5) Toxic substances at work.

Some people (because of their profession) are forced every day to contact with carcinogens. This, for example:

  • workers of factories on manufacturing of aluminium parts;
  • painters;
  • pavers, which come into contact with carcinogenic benzene;
  • manufacturers of rubber;
  • hairdressers that come into contact with dyes;
  • manicure and pedicure – they are also breathing dangerous vapors.

6) Night shifts.

The international Agency for research on cancer called a job that involves night shifts, is extremely hazardous to health. People who work at night, violated the natural circadian rhythms.

This kind of “biological clocks” that regulate physiological processes in the human body depending on light or dark time of day. Such failures do not go unnoticed and can cause skin cancer, lung or breast.

7) Arsenic.

Inorganic form of arsenic is extremely toxic. It is often found in drinking water in countries such as Bangladesh.

According to the world health organization, at least 140 million people in 50 countries drink water that contains a huge amount of arsenic. It also stimulates the growth of cancerous tumors.

8) Meat cooked on an open fire.

American scientists claim that under the influence of high temperature in the meat begin to form a special chemical, heterocyclic aromatic amines and polycyclic aromatic carbohydrates.

They break the DNA of cells. This in turn increases the risk of developing cancer, especially in men.

9) coal.

For many years the miners more often than people in other professions, was diagnosed with lung cancer, bladder and stomach. According to some reports, cancer causing coal dust.

10) Alcohol.

Regular alcohol consumption increases the risk of cancer of the throat, liver, breast and colon.

According to the National cancer Institute, “cancer risk increases in proportion to the amount of alcohol consumed”.

An international team of researchers studied data of 600,000 people in 19 countries with a high standard of living. The results showed a high risk of developing cancer of the digestive system all participants in the study.

11) of Exhaust gases.

According to the International Agency for research on cancer, diesel fuel is more than 30 components that can cause cancer.

12) Pickles and pickled products.

Salted fish, popular in China, contains large amounts of nitrates and nitrites dangerous carcinogens. These chemical compounds can damage your DNA cells, which will lead to the development of cancer.

According to Cancer Research UK, “immigrants from China or who has Chinese roots, but at the moment living in Britain, more common cancer of the nasopharynx than do members of other ethnic groups”, it may be due to their diet.

Eating large amounts of pickled foods also increases the risk of stomach cancer.

13) Drilling.

While drilling in the air and water are benzene and formaldehyde – chemicals that stimulate the growth of cancerous tumors.

14) Processed meat products sausage, ham-like bacon, sausages.

According to the who, sausages, ham, bacon and sausage are potential carcinogens. All these products have undergone some processing – salting, Smoking, fermenting, etc.

In a recent study it was found that regular consumption of large amounts of processed meat increases the risk of developing breast cancer by 9%.

Eating one hot dog, or about two slices of bacon every day increases the risk of developing bowel cancer by 18%.

15) Asbestos.

For many years asbestos was used in construction as insulation material for many years. Now, this mineral is banned in 63 countries because of its toxicity and Carcinogenicity.

Constant contact with asbestos dust can trigger the onset of lung cancer, stomach and ovaries. Every year due to diseases caused by asbestos, kills more than 107 thousand people.

16) a Means of weed glyphosate.

Glyphosate is the main component of the popular herbicide Round Up. Its manufacturer is the American company Monsanto.

The world health organization in 2015, has classified glyphosate as a “probable carcinogen to humans”.

Earlier this year Monsanto has sued more than 300 American farmers. They argue that glyphosate in the popular herbicides has led to the appearance of their cancer.

Representatives of Monsanto believe that the scandal surrounding glyphosate is a consequence of the competitive struggle for international markets. Scientists can not yet give a definite answer about the effects of using glyphosate in rural mosaiste to human health.

17) Wood dust.

Employees of sawmill and furniture industries, which are regularly in the wood treatment process, breathing dust, prone to develop cancer of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses.

18) High levels of estrogen and contraceptives.

Women with high levels of estrogen are at risk to diagnosis “breast cancer”. Usually it is women who pass through menopause, or girls whose periods start.

Those who use birth control pills, susceptible to cervical cancer. Although there is evidence that regular use of birth control hormonal methods reduce the risk of developing other types of cancer – e.g. cancer of the endometrium, esophagus, and ovaries.

19) Viruses.

Some viruses can cause cancer. This happens when the viruses break the DNA of cells, this in turn leads to tumor growth.

Such diseases include that human papilloma virus (causes cervical cancer), hepatitis B and C (can cause liver cancer), Epstein-Barr (can cause the growth of lymphoma). The bacterium H. pylori can cause stomach cancer.

20) Your genes.

Some types of cancer are transmitted from one generation to the next. Genetic mutations play a key role in about 5-10% of cases of cancer.

The degree of involvement of genetic factors in the origin of cancer differently. For example, among patients with breast cancer hereditary forms occur in 7-15% of cases, among patients with colon cancer in 5-10% of cases.

21) Obesity.

Obesity can significantly increase the risk of cancer of the breast, colon, rectum, esophagus, kidney and pancreas.

22) Formaldehyde.

Formaldehyde is a colourless chemical with a strong odor, which is used in building materials and to produce many household products.

In 1980, laboratory studies showed that exposure to formaldehyde could cause nasal cancer in rats. The international Agency for research on cancer (IARC) klassificeret formaldehyde as a human carcinogen.

23) Implants.

Data Danish scientists show that there is a connection between the implants and the particular type of cancer – anaplastic large cell lymphoma. Danes researched the history of diseases in 43 women with this cancer over the past 26 years.

32 of them had implants. The conclusions were clear: breast implants increase risk of anaplastic large cell lymphoma at time 421, i.e., to 70 years, a woman from 6920 with implants may suffer from this type of breast cancer.

24) air Pollution.

Air pollution triggers lung cancer. This was stated by Danish scientists. They analyzed data from 312 944 study participants.

From 2095 was diagnosed with lung cancer. The highest risk tended to the people living at the same address for a long period of time. A Taiwanese study found that at very high levels of air pollution is increasing also the risk of developing cancer of the oral cavity.

25) other kinds of calamities and disasters.

Firefighters handling the rubble after the September 11 attacks, as well as people working in downtown Manhattan following the tragic events were forced to breathe the dust, which was formed after the fall of the twin towers.

At 9300 of them was diagnosed with 70 different types of cancer: breast, cervical, lung. 420 who was at the epicenter of the tragedy later died of cancer.

26) and silicon Dioxide.

Silicosis is an occupational disease of the lungs in those who regularly inhales dust of silica gel or other free silica. Silicosis increases risk of tuberculosis, bronchitis and emphysema.

Silicosis is an irreversible and incurable disease, and the impact of quartz contributes to the development of lung cancer.

27) Radiation.

We know that x-rays and ultraviolet radiation cause cancer. Of course, if you do an x-ray once a year – no harm will be done.

Cancers threaten people who have been exposed to high doses of radiation (remember Chernobyl) and those who are medically forced to undergo chemotherapy.

However, the American cancer society warns: “there is no minimum dose of radiation that can be considered safe”.

28) Long-term chronic inflammation.

It can cause any chronic infections, bowel diseases or obesity. This inflammation damages the DNA of human cells. This in turn leads to cancer.

29) Plastic bottles and containers.

The material from which is made of plastic, is very toxic. We all know that toxins penetrate into any surface with which come into contact.

Compounds in the composition of the plastic, when ingested, destroys it on a cellular level and cause health problems.

30) Sex on the first date.

Before you go to the very pleasant, test partner for the presence of human papillomavirus. Because it is transmitted sexually and eventually causes cancer.

Many forms of the virus disappear by themselves and relatively harmless, but others can cause cancer of the cervix or penis. Even a condom is not able to protect you from the disease are 100%.

This is why, men and women are recommended to make vaccination against HPV before the first potential sexual contact.

What is the point of this list was open to you? Which of these things present in your life constantly?
