When I entered his room and saw his eyes open, it was like no other experience I’d ever had. In this blog post, I will share my story and tell you what it was like to be woken from the coma and see his eyes open
Cancer is considered to be the second leading cause of death worldwide.
More alarmingly, since the 1990s, the number of cancer cases among people under the age of 50 has increased significantly in various parts of the world.
But why has the rate of cancer diagnosis in people under the age of 50 increased so much in the present era?
This is answered in a new medical study.
The study, published in the journal Clinical Oncology, found that lifestyle factors such as diet, body weight and environmental influences in adolescence are associated with cancer risk in middle age.
The study analyzed data from 14 types of cancer worldwide between 2000 and 2012.
The results showed that the rate of cases of 14 types of cancer, including breast cancer, esophagus, head and neck, kidney, blood, bladder, stomach and thyroid, increased among people aged 50 years.
The researchers then analyzed existing research on factors that may increase cancer risk.
According to the researchers, evidence suggests that early life habits influence cancer risk in middle age.
He said that there is a relationship between diet, lifestyle, environmental influences and cancer prognosis.
He said that the western style diet i.e. high consumption of fat, red meat, processed meat and sugar increases the risk of cancer.
Similarly, alcohol and smoking use, lack of sleep from childhood, working night shifts, increased rates of type 2 diabetes, physical inactivity and sitting for long periods of time are major risk factors for cancer. are
Research has shown that 8 out of 14 types of cancer are related to the digestive system, so this proves that a healthy diet can be very helpful in preventing cancer.
The research also gave tips for protection against cancer.
A Western-style diet—processed food, animal fat, sweets and red meat—should be consumed to a minimum, the researchers said.
Similarly, one should avoid consuming too much sugar, exercise regularly, avoid smoking and alcohol, ensure a balanced diet and good sleep.
