Are Tumor incidents on the rise, or does it just seem that way?

One can't turn around now-a-days without hearing of someone who has/had Tumors/cancer (of some sort, at some stage).

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) has claimed to be winning the war on cancer. Last March, newspapers across the country dutifully heralded a decline in cancer incidence and mortality, citing the latest annual report of the National Cancer Institute. The report credited the decline to lifestyle changes, improved detection, and reduced smoking.

Despite such celebrated claims of progress against the disease, the facts tell a different story.

Over recent decades, the incidence of cancer has escalated to epidemic proportions (1), now striking nearly one in two men (44%) and more than one in three women (39%). This increase translates into approximately 56% more cancer in men and 22% more cancer in women over the course of a single generation (2). As admitted by recent NCI and ACS estimates, the number of cancer cases will increase still further because of the growth and aging of the population, dramatically doubling by 2050 (3).

From 1973 to 1999 (a 26-year period), based on available data (1), the overall incidence of cancers (expressed as the numbers per 100,000 population), adjusted to reflect the aging population, has increased by approximately 24% Source

Cancer isn't new. The origin of the word cancer is credited to the Greek physician Hippocrates (460-370 B.C.), - The world's oldest documented case of cancer is from ancient Egypt, in 1500 BC. The details were recorded on a papyrus, documenting 8 cases of tumors occurring on the breast.

"In 1904 only 1 out of 24 Americans had cancer in his lifetime.
Today the cancer rate is 1 out of 2 for men and 2 out of 3 in women."

More than 50% of the population will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime and the percentage is steadily climbing. The purpose of this newsletter is to help people become aware of this trend by providing information for those who do not want to become victims.

A recently released Institute of Medicine report, sponsored by the American Cancer Society and the National Cancer Institute, highlights the rapid increase in cancer in low- to middle-income nations and calls for immediate global action. Source

Doctors now say that "every man will develop prostate cancer if he lives long enough, even though the overwhelming majority will not die from it." Breast cancer in women is as common as prostate cancer in men. Most people now have cancer in their body when they die, even if they die of something else.

''Cancer is reaching epidemic proportions and we need to identify the links between the public health crisis and the environment,'' declared Priscilla Rosenwald of the Pennsylvania Women's Health and Environment Network during a breast cancer conference in 1997. Such claims are often accompanied by pleas for massively expensive regulations that would require removing even the smallest traces of synthetic chemicals from the environment.

More Americans die of cancer each year than died in World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam combined. In 2007 it is expected that more than 1.4 million Americans will be diagnosed with cancer and nearly 560,000 will die from it. Someone dies of cancer every minute.

Types of common cancers vary in different countries. For example, in India, cancer of mouth and throat is most common and accounts for about 35% to 40% of all cancers. It is estimated that about 15 lakh Indians would get cancer. In America and Europe, cancer of lung, prostate (male) and breast (female) is most common. Cancer of colon is also getting more common. This may be related to poor quality of foods consumed and unhealthy lifestyles. In Japan, cancers of stomach and food-pipe are common. These differences may be due to different life styles, food habits etc in different regions.

The Time To Choose Is Now!
You have to decide wether you will
get on with living or get on with dying.

"It will not be long before the entire population will have to decide whether we will all die of cancer or whether we will have enough wisdom, courage, and will power to change fundamentally all our living and nutritional conditions." - Dr. Max Gerson

There is substantial evidence on the risks of brain cancer and leukemia in children from frequent consumption of nitrite-dyed hot dogs; consumption during pregnancy has been similarly incriminated. Nitrites, added to meat for coloring purposes, have been shown to react with natural chemicals in meat (amines) to form a potent carcinogenic nitrosamine.

CHICAGO, May 9 /PRNewswire/ — The following was released by Samuel S. Epstein, M.D., Chairman of the Cancer Prevention Coalition and Professor Emeritus of Environmental and Occupational Medicine, University of Illinois School of Public Health, Chicago, and Quentin D. Young, M.D., Chairman of the Health and Medicine Policy Research Group, Past President of American Public Health Association, Chicago:

Since passage of the 1971 National Cancer Act, launching the "War Against Cancer," the incidence of childhood cancer has steadily escalated to alarming levels. Childhood cancers have increased by 26% overall, while the incidence of particular cancers has increased still more: acute lymphocytic leukemia, 62%; brain cancer, 50%; and bone cancer, 40%. Source

In most developed countries, cancer is the second largest cause of death after cardiovascular disease, and epidemiological evidence points to this trend emerging in the less developed world

"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."

Cancer is a global issue and is among the most feared diseases in the world. It is estimated that the yearly incidence of cancer could be 15 million per year by 2020 (World Health Organization 2003). Given this alarming forecast, it is little wonder that the prevention of cancer is of utmost importance.

The situation in Australia
Australia, with its ageing population, “faces an unprecedented cancer control challenge” and it is estimated that cancer incidence rates will increase by 30% in the next five to ten years (Cancer Council Australia 2007a)

Additional benefits of cancer prevention
Prevention recommendations for cancer can also prevent other chronic conditions, thus making it preferable to providing a cure for cancer alone. The Seven major modifiable risk factors for cancer are smoking, poor nutrition, having a physically inactive lifestyle, being overweight or obese, alcohol misuse , exposure to UV radiation, chemicals and drugs.

Cancer is on the Rise.
The rate of rise is dramatic, doubling in the last 30 years. Furthermore, of the estimated 560,000 cancer victims who would die in 1997, most of them could have prevented their illness had they paid attention to some simple lifestyle factors.

Cancer develops when cells in a part of the body begin to grow out of control.

Normal body cells grow, divide, and die in an orderly fashion. Because cancer cells continue to grow and divide, they are different from normal cells. Instead of dying, they outlive normal cells and continue to form new abnormal cells.

Virus cause cancer?

To be fair, the history of cancer-virus research is littered with false starts and embarrassing missteps. In 1926, a Danish scientist scored a Nobel Prize for showing that parasitic worms cause stomach cancer; it was later discovered that the "tumors" were actually lesions, triggered by vitamin deficiency. In the early 1970s scientists still believed that many if not most human cancers were triggered by some sort of infection. Famed HIV scientist Robert Gallo spent years at the National Cancer Institute trolling for the viral culprit, but most of his studies were never replicated and by the end of the decade, the hypothesis had been abandoned. "You have to tread carefully with findings like these," says Robert Weinberg, a biology professor and cancer researcher at MIT. "The majority of these claims tend to go up in smoke."

Breast cancer cells dividing

Today we know that at least three cancers are virus-induced: cervical cancer (Human Papiloma Virus, or HPV), liver cancer (Hepatitis B), and lymphoma (Epstein-Barr virus). But many questions still need answers before scientists can add brain cancer and CMV to that list.

Professor Robert Souhami, director of clinical research for Cancer Research UK, said: 'Around 15-20% of all cancers are caused by viruses, so it's vital that we get a better handle on the role of viral infection.

Your Immune System and Cancer

What your immune system does
The immune system protects the body against infection by bacteria, viruses and other parasites. It is really a collection of responses that the body makes to infection. So it is sometimes called the 'immune response'.

There is a philosophy which says that we live in an ocean of bacteria and viruses. It is not the microorganisms that cause disease, it is an inefficient immune system. We see the evidence of this truth constantly around us. One person in an office gets a very bad cold. The one sitting next to him doesn't get a sniffle. Certainly both were exposed to the same microorganisms. What is the difference? "The persons immune system",,,it destroys cells foreign to the body.

The immune system is important to cancer patients in many ways because

The cancer can weaken the immune system
Cancer treatment can weaken the immune system
The immune system may help to fight your cancer
The cancer can weaken the immune system by spreading into the bone marrow where the cells that help fight infection are made. This happens most often in leukaemia or lymphoma. But it can happen with other cancers too. The cancer in the bone marrow stops the bone marrow making so many blood cells.

Chemotherapy and radiotherapy can weaken immunity by causing a drop in the number of white blood cells made in the bone marrow. Apart from bone marrow or stem cell transplants, this effect on the bone marrow is temporary. High doses of steroids can also weaken your immune system temporarily.

Some cells of the immune system can recognise cancer cells as abnormal and kill them.

An expression in one area of the alternative medical treatment of cancer is this; "All cancer is the result of an immune system that didn't destroy mutant cells" Obviously, cancer cells are foreign to the body. The immune system of a healthy person destroys "10,000" mutated (cancer) cells every day. When this defense ceases, the cancer can multiply and become a clinical case of cancer

Now, suppose that instead of damaging the body's only defense against cancer with chemicals and radiation, we focus on strengthening the immune system so it will do it's job,and work in harmony with medical protocols? This is exactly what a large segment of alternative treatments do.

Stress reduction
It's well known that chronically high levels of stress hormones (like adrenaline) suppress the immune system and reduce the body's ability to defend or repair itself. That's why many cancer centers and hospitals have begun offering stress reduction therapy along with traditional cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation. Tools for stress

Talk to your doctor or nurse about using these techniques in conjunction with your regular treatment.

 

Intuition that tells you (more like SHOUTS at you) that you need to build up your immune system to combat the cancer and to restore your overall health. Once you understand that you need effective treatment to deal with a threat as serious as cancer, and you go ahead with your treatment, you still need to listen to your intuition. It does make sense that your immune system needs to be nurtured. Here are some suggestions to help you help yourself.
