There is currently research going on to figure out what causes cancer, which is the killer of millions of people worldwide. Are you suffering with cancer or know someone who had fallen ill to it? This article goes into detail about 3 possible factors in the development of cancer. A few of the factors involved in the development of cancer are as follows: microorganisms, environmental toxins, and the body being out of balance. Do Microbes Cause Cancer? I wanted to probe the idea of cancer being started by microorganisms, or at least these microbes being a factor in the development of cancerous tissue. For years scientists were unaware of microbes even existing.
After the invention of the microscope scientists could actually start to see microorganisms. There was another 200-year period where physicians knew about microbes, but didn't know they could play a role in the development of disease. For some reason, many physicians didn't believe or weren't aware that certain kinds of microbes could be found in cancerous tissue. The cancerous tissue, which contained the microbes, had to be seen with a certain acid-fast tissue staining procedure. The same microbes found in cancerous tissue have also been seen in other diseases.
For example, in scleroderma the same cancer microbes are found in that diseased area. Are Environmental Toxins Causing Cancer? Environmental toxins are also associated with causing cancer. There was a study done on volunteers who work in a laboratory where various chemicals are found in great abundance. Studies showed that in the nine volunteers ninety one industrial compounds, pollutants and other chemicals were found in their urine.
The National Toxicology Program has named many of these toxins as cancer causing agents. Below are a few of these toxic compounds. Dioxins- these are organic compounds that contain carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. This toxin accumulates in animals with high fat content such as shellfish and fish.
Furans- these are chemicals related to PCB'S and dioxins are linked to problems with the endocrine system Metals- Metallic particles of lead, mercury, aluminum, arsenic and cadmium accumulate in the soft tissues of the body. Mercury is found in tap water and mercury in canned tuna. Phthales- These is a chemical that soften plastics and lengthen shelf life of cosmetics, mousses, hair spray and fragrances Out Of Balance Studies have shown that when the human body is in acidic state it is more susceptible to various diseases such as cancer! In contrast, when the human body is in an alkaline state it's virtually impossible to succumb to any disease including cancer. As new information is documented I will update this article accordingly.
