It is said that you cannot throw a brick without it landing on someone who has either had cancer or knows someone who has cancer. The word cancer- the emperor of all maladies is heard about everywhere these days .It is caused when cells multiply well beyond control.
The cells in our body are replaced by an orderly process of growth – the old dying cells are replaced by new healthy cells. But when cancer strikes there is a mutation in the genes that are responsible for regulating the growth of cells and keeping them healthy . The abnormal cells then divide uncontrollably producing more and more cells , resulting in a cancerous mass . One is either born with a cancer causing genetic mutation or the mutation can be triggered in the body by inflammation , hormones, certain viral infections, environmental influences such as harmful chemicals. Nothing can be done about Genetic mutations but controlling our lifestyle is in our hands as cancer is a life style related disease .So lets focus on the preventive aspect .Here are a few ways to naturally safe guard your family from this dreaded disease .
