Dispelling myths and misconceptions about cancer

 

Around such topics as cancer, there are a lot of MYTHS. But what is really the truth?

CANCER IS CONTAGIOUS

There are viruses that can favour the development of cancers, such as the human papilloma virus that are transmitted sexually and raise the risk of developing cervical cancer. However, they are not the only permissive factor. Even with blood transfusions and organ transplants the risk that will be transferred cancer cells is extremely low.

IT IS ALL ABOUT PERSONALITY

Angry, negative people do not develop cancer more often than others, although stress can greatly affect the immune system. However, the probability of the existence of unhappy "cancer man" is also small, as the probability of the existence of the belief that happy and cheerful people can be cured thanks to his positive attitude.

DEODORANTS ARE DANGEROUS TO HEALTH

Aluminum salts have a bad reputation. However, this is not supported by scientific data. Information on this topic is too vague, and the research is very contradictory. Institute for risk assessment advises not to put deodorant on broken or irritated skin, to reduce the absorption of aluminum salts or use deodorants that contain no aluminium salts.

THE RISK IN ORAL CAVITY

Dental amalgam fillings contain mercury. Some people fear that this substance may cause cancer, if it is, for example, through saliva spread in the body. In this case, we can reassure You: at the moment there is no scientific evidence that amalgam fillings increase the risk of developing cancer.

BREAST CANCER FROM BRAS

Bra pinch ways of outflow of lymph, which prevents impurities generated due to the exchange processes that leach from the human body? The answer is no. Scientific evidence for this assertion exists. Today much more likely to assume much greater importance for the occurrence of disease has the body weight.

LIFESTYLE

Feed Your baby breast milk at least for six months! Breastfeeding protects mothers from breast cancer, the longer the feeding, the lower the risk.

Quit Smoking! No matter active or passive Smoking increases the risk of cancer development. After five years without Smoking, the risk of developing cancer is reduced by half.
