4 toxic eating habits that can lead to cancer
Scientist and academician Sun Yen (93 years old, works at the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences Cancer Hospital) is an extremely famous expert in the field of oncology.
The expert has more than 60 years of research on malignant tumors, has saved many cancer patients from death and is also a regular guest on CCTV.
Academic Ton Yen said: Cancer is mainly “man-made” but we can prevent it in many ways. Prevention is better than cure, early treatment is better than late treatment.
Bad eating habits, smoking, pollution or biological infections can lead to the development of cancer, so these factors should be avoided as much as possible. Starting today, you should quit smoking. They should eat lightly, eat clean, and consciously avoid viral infection.
Academician Ton Yen said that about half of cancer patients are due to poor lifestyle habits. In particular, patients commonly share the following four toxic dietary preferences. If someone can limit the intake of these foods, the ability to prevent disease is very good.
Cancer has 4 “favourites”, if you don’t use it for a lifetime, you will definitely stay away from the disease
1. Fatty foods
If you’re a person who eats high-calorie, high-fat foods on a regular basis, you’re more likely to become obese — a factor closely linked to many types of cancer.
A UK study published in leading medical journal The Lancet has shown that body mass index is linked to 17 types of cancer. For every 5 kg/m2 increase in body mass index, the likelihood of uterine cancer, gallbladder cancer, kidney cancer, cervical cancer, thyroid cancer and lymphoma increases significantly. According to statistics, for every 1kg/m2 increase in body mass index, there are 3,790 new cancer patients in the UK each year.
As we age, it’s almost impossible for us to better control our weight if we don’t know how to control portion sizes. Eating more vegetables, fruits, and fiber-rich whole grains is healthier than foods high in calories, fat, and sugar.
2. Salted food
If you regularly eat foods like salted meat, salted fish, pickles, etc., the risk of cancer is high. These foods all contain many nitrite components. Under the action of gastric acid, nitrite reacts with proteins to form nitrosamines and causes cancer of the esophagus, colon and stomach.
3. Fast food, food that is too hot
Fast food or very hot meals can also increase the risk of cancer. Academician Ton Yen said that people who like to eat hot food and drink hot water have a very high risk of esophageal cancer.
Alcoholism and dependence on stimulants can also promote the growth of cancer cells and increase the risk of liver, stomach and esophagus cancer.
Experts reveal ways to prevent cancer
According to expert Ton Yen, the first way to prevent cancer is to see a doctor every year. Most cancers are highly curable in their early stages, and the effectiveness of cancer treatment is highly dependent on how long it takes for the disease to be diagnosed. Therefore, experts suggest that it is best to have an annual check-up, especially for middle-aged and elderly people or those at high risk of cancer.
Second, don’t stay up late. The expert warned that staying up late is a precursor to many dangerous types of cancer. According to Academician Ton, lack of sleep or staying up late impairs the immune system, followed by the digestive and mental systems, and then the cardiovascular, endocrine, liver and kidney functions. It is best to get enough sleep for 7-8 hours a day and not stay up late. In general, if the quality of sleep is good, the incidence of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases decreases.
And importantly, for effective cancer prevention, everyone should keep a good mood, relieve their own pressure and learn to enjoy life.
