Three out of ten people who get cancer could have prevented the disease by having a healthier lifestyle, according to a study done by the Dutch Cancer Society, conducted by Dutch scientific research institute, TNO.
Whether or not a person smokes, their diet, and how much exercise they get are the most important factors.
In the Netherlands, every year there are more than 100,000 new cases of cancer. Of these, 44,000 people die from the disease. Genetics plays a big role, but whether a person has a healthy or unhealthy lifestyle is also important. An estimated 30 percent of new cancer cases in the Netherlands are caused by an unhealthy lifestyle.
People who smoke have a much greater chance of getting cancer. 19,000 people get cancer every year by smoking, which is 19 percent of all cancers in the Netherlands. More than a quarter of them die. Excessive drinking, being overweight, or overexposure to the sun also increase a person’s risk of cancer, but smoking is by far the biggest risk factor.
Not one but several factors.
This short article in ‘nu.nl’ . Other studies show this number is much higher at 50%. Exercise is also important. There are so many factors that play a role and whose effects are added together because they all contribute to an overload of the immune system; they drain the ability of the body to create wastes and toxins. Substances that pollute the body can be found in the air, food, drinks, skin care, hair care and even cosmetics. The sum of all these taxes can ensure that the immune system no longer has enough energy to meet these challenges. Seldom does one substance or genetic predisposition determines whether the cancer can develop. Obviously, this is not the view of the average medical practitioner. No attention is paid to psychological factors or the effects of a combination of factors.
Also, the sun itself is not a risk factor. Our skin produces vitamin D when exposed to the sun. Only getting a sunburn is a risk factor. Being in the sun is a preventative factor more than it is a risk.
Not Genetic but environmental factors are decisive!
It is also important to know that genetic predisposition is not necessarily important. The latest research has found the genetic predisposition to more than 10% plays a role in the risk of developing cancer. The genetic predisposition can namely only be carried out if the environmental factors, such as diet, think and feel permit. That means someone may have a predisposition to cancer, but when this person has a healthy lifestyle, a little more than average in his or her diet, and careful attention to mental health problems, the risk is very small (10%) that he or she will get cancer.
There is so much more involved in the onset and course of the disease than the doctors think and or want us to believe.
Medical treatment is not completely effective because it is based on a strijjd and broken want to make of cancer. Cancer cells come in each body; the body’s own immune system to cancer cells and is well able to restrain this process. Only when it is overloaded, do the cancer cells get a chance to further develop into cancer.
The way to deal with this is, therefore, not to make the body broken with chemotherapy but to strengthen the immune system. This way, the body itself will be capable of the process of return. Examination of physical or psychological factors also plays a role in the occurrence of overload and what can be done to reduce and resolve them.
