According to the American Cancer society website, the word cancer comes from the Hippocrates “the father of medicine” to describe the word “crab”. The word crab is to describe the finger-like spreading and jagged edges of the cancer growth. There are elements that may cause cancer in humans. Our food supply has not been the same as our past ancestor such as the overload of preservatives for longer shelf life, industrialization of emissions from cars and pollution plants, and the water supply that has toxins from the industrial plants and water wasting. These are all contributors of know cancer factors among cancer patients. (aca,2009)
According to the CDC (Center of Disease Control) breast cancer is the leading cause of death among women and prostate cancer among men. Most cancers are caused by high-fat diets, processed to death foods, which is a contributor to early rheumatoid arthritis, and the surrounding elements such as contaminated soil, polluted air, and contaminated water.
Cancers can be treated through conventional medical methods such as chemotherapy and radiation. The alternative methods of treating cancers may include herbal remedies, sun and water baths, and massages. These are all methods to producing a healthier vibrant immune system. Nutritional therapy may contribute to boosting the immune system and fighting cancer cell growths. Brown rice, green tea, and garlic are the leading foods that fight cancer, stop the growth of certain tumor cells, and slow or prevent free radicals from mutating good cells.
Tumors are cancerous masses that may cause pain or localized discomfort in the human body. Tumors are cells that do not have the DNA (Deoxyribonucleic acid) or the genes to stop producing other cells thus the cells stick together and form balls or tumors. Tumors came from the Latin word “oncos”, which means to swell. Whole garlic has been shown to stops and shrink tumors over a therapeutic period (6 weeks) Green tea has been shown to reduce the swelling and aid in boosting the immune system to fight foreign malignant cancer cells.
