Cancer Causes That May Surprise You

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

There are many cancer causes that are unusual and may give you an aha moment when you read about them and learn the facts. Some of them are things we do everyday in our general lives--in our cooking, eating and beauty routines.

In general we hear over and over again the same cancer causes--like smoking and polluted air and food. This is only scraping the tip of the iceberg. This is why we tend to concentrate on these things only and not other things that may be a factor. We are bombarded daily with carcinogens and free radicals which can be found in these general everyday things.

  • Water
  • Food
  • Air
  • Makeup
  • Hairproducts
  • Body washes and soaps
  • Toothpaste
  • Radiation from everyday products and technology

The list can go on and on. However it is certainly a daunting thing to think that you really cannot escape the poisons but there are ways to combat them. 

Ways to help prevent any cancer:

Antioxidants are what soak up free-radicals from your system. There are ways to eat and things to avoid so you stand a better chance of staving off these pesky cancer forming agents. You know, if it wasn’t for our environment and how we play with it--we wouldn’t have as many cancers around that we do now. Our bodies do a great job of filtering and healing but when we are hitting it from every end--we are going way over the top. 

Unusual Cancer Causes: 

  • Your work schedule: Your body has a natural sleep-wake cycle and when that is disturbed regularly it disrupts the normal melatonin-making pattern. This means tumors have a great environment in which to develop. This is true for women that develop breast cancer and are nurses and stewardesses. This is according to the studies done by the Agency for Research on Cancer.
  • The temperature you cook at: Yep, you heard right. Although we will put the disclaimer out there quickly and state that the colorectal cancer that they have found in people in this study have a very specific genetic makeup. But, the way it is believed they developed it was the carbon in well done and other elements in frying food. 
  • HRT: When a woman reached menopause-she will normally need hormone replacement therapy in the form of progesterone or estrogen. However, there are a lot of studies that are finding that this is a contributing factor in some female cancers such as breast cancer.
  • Infections: We are now discovering that any type of viral infection and HPV human papilloma virus as well as hepatitis infection play a factor in abnormal cell growth and cancerous tumors. Some examples are liver cancer and cervical cancer.

Bottom line, the C word is awful. However, if we are mindful of what we are doing and steer clear of any and all GMO’s in food, purify our water, steer clear of smoking and excessive drinking as well as eating excessive processed foods, we can avoid harbingers for unusual cancer causes.
