10 Interesting Things about Cancer

1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion.

2. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

3. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.

4. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumours.

5. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

6. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system

7. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage,like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

8. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

9. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

10. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complication
