Cancer cells are most afraid of you doing these 12 things
1. I am afraid that you will quit smoking
Tobacco control can be said to be the “primary issue” of cancer prevention. Since 1991, the cancer death rate in the United States has decreased by 26%, more than half of which is attributed to the decline in smoking rate.
Smoking may shorten the average life expectancy by more than 10 years. Quitting smoking is beneficial to people of any age. As long as you can quit smoking in time, it is never too late.
2. Afraid that you will limit alcohol
In 1987, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified alcohol as a carcinogen for the first time. Excessive drinking can cause many adverse effects on the body, and is related to at least 7 types of cancer.
According to the recommendation, the amount of alcohol consumed by men should not exceed 25 grams a day, and women should not exceed 15 grams, otherwise it would be considered excessive drinking. 25 grams of alcohol is about the same as liquor: no more than one tael each time; beer: no more than one bottle each time; red wine: limited to about one red wine glass each time.
Even moderate alcohol consumption increases the risk of certain cancers, including breast cancer. Alcohol is not recommended for cancer prevention.
3. I am afraid that you will develop a good habit of drinking water
If you drink a lot of water, the concentration of carcinogens in the urine will not be too high. If you drink less water, the urine in the bladder will decrease, resulting in a higher concentration of carcinogens in the urine, which will cause irritation to the bladder mucosa , drinking plenty of water can prevent bladder cancer.
Develop a good habit of drinking water every day. It is best to remind yourself to drink some water every half an hour. Don’t forget to drink water because you are busy with work, thereby burying the risk of cancer.
4. I’m afraid you’ll keep a good mood
Among the adverse emotional reactions, those closely related to cancer are depression, strong frustration, hopelessness and helplessness. There is a saying that “depression catalyzes tumors.” People with severe depression tendencies are three times more likely to die of cancer than ordinary people. For example, women with major depressive disorder are more likely to develop breast cancer and have a worse prognosis after developing cancer.
You should communicate more with others at ordinary times, and you can release and relieve stress in the process of communicating with others. Many entangled things can be helped and released by communicating with others.
5. Afraid you like sports
Exercise can effectively improve immune system function, lower levels of insulin and insulin-like growth factor, and reduce body fat. It not only helps to lose weight or keep in shape, but also has a preventive effect on cancer.
Studies have shown that people who get at least 30 to 60 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity every day have a reduced risk of cancer, especially breast and colon cancer. In addition, rates of several other cancers, including prostate, lung and endometrial cancers, also declined.
In order to prevent cancer, the American exercise guidelines recommend that adults should do at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise (such as brisk walking), or 75 minutes of high-intensity exercise (such as jogging), or an equivalent combination of the two exercises every week.
6. I am afraid that you will keep in good shape

Obesity not only increases the risk of heart disease, diabetes, bone and joint disease, but also increases the risk of cancer. More than 20 different types of cancer are associated with obesity, most notably rectal, endometrial, and esophageal adenocarcinomas.
Keep in mind “8580”, maintain weight to prevent cancer – 85: refers to the standard weight, the waist circumference of men should be controlled within 85 cm; 80: the waist circumference of women should not exceed 80 cm.
7. Afraid of your healthy diet
Gastric cancer is closely related to bad eating habits, especially too much salt is very harmful to the stomach. The high osmotic pressure of salt will directly damage the gastric mucosa, causing a series of pathological changes such as congestion, edema, erosion, ulcer, necrosis and hemorrhage. At the same time, it can also reduce gastric acid secretion and make the gastric mucosa vulnerable to attack.
Nitrite in many pickled foods combines with amines in food to form amine nitrite, which is highly carcinogenic and has been listed as a first-class carcinogen by the World Health Organization.
Note: the total salt intake per person per day should not exceed 6 grams; eat less nitrite-treated foods, such as sausages, ham, luncheon meat and cured meat products; eat a variety of foods every day, such as fruits, vegetables, Grains, protein and dairy.
8. Afraid you have enough sleep
Modern people are busy with work during the day, and are used to staying up late at night. They don’t pay attention to falling asleep on time. Over time, people are in a sub-health state and provide favorable conditions for cancer cells to do evil. In clinical diagnosis and treatment, most cancer patients have experienced poor sleep.
It is best to fall asleep before 11 o’clock at night, and you only need to rest for 30 minutes between 11 o’clock and 13 o’clock for a nap.
9. Afraid of your sun protection
Sun exposure is the biggest risk factor for skin cancer. Almost 86% of melanoma skin cancers and 90% of non-melanoma skin cancers (including basal and squamous cell carcinomas) are associated with UV radiation from the sun. The most effective way to avoid your risk of skin cancer is to limit your time in the sun.
Sunbathing is a good way to supplement vitamin D, but you should pay attention to: use sunscreen properly; avoid direct sunlight at noon; wear a wide-brimmed sunhat and sunglasses; wear sun-resistant clothing.
10. Afraid of your regular physical examination
For your own health, regular physical examination is necessary, early examination, early diagnosis, early treatment. The following screenings are recommended on a regular basis: breast cancer screening, cervical cancer screening, colorectal cancer screening, hepatitis C virus screening, HIV screening, lung cancer screening, obesity, etc.
Cancer prevention physical examination is different from general physical examination. Different high-risk groups of cancer have different physical examination methods to choose from. For example, lung cancer can choose chest low-dose spiral CT; breast cancer: mammography, ultrasound; liver cancer: ultrasound + blood alpha-fetoprotein detection; colorectal cancer, gastric cancer, esophageal cancer: colonoscopy and gastroscopy.
For most cancer screenings, routine cancer prevention checkups are generally available for those over the age of 50. However, breast cancer is relatively young, and breast cancer prevention checkups can be started at the age of 40.
11. I am afraid that you will reduce the radiation of indoor building materials
Before moving into a newly decorated home, it is recommended to ask a professional testing organization to conduct an indoor environment test, and decide whether you can move in based on the test results. If the pollution is not very serious, it is best to ventilate for about 6 months before moving in. More ventilation in the home can reduce the concentration of indoor radon and formaldehyde.
Radon pollution, formaldehyde pollution, benzene pollution, etc. will all have an impact on health. Among them, radon pollution has been confirmed by the World Health Organization as the second largest lung cancer substance after tobacco.
Radon: A radioactive gas widely present in nature. Building materials are the most important source of indoor radon, such as slag bricks and natural stone used for decoration, as well as ceramic products such as tiles and sanitary ware.
Formaldehyde: It mainly comes from wood-based panels used in decoration and furniture, such as composite flooring, large core boards, density boards, and white latex and fabric products used in decoration.
Benzene: mainly from solvent-based wood varnishes, paints, solvent-based adhesives and cleaners, etc.
12. I am afraid that you will stay away from 11 kinds of pathogens
Some viral infections (such as HPV, HIV, and hepatitis B virus) also increase the risk of cancer. Currently, a total of 11 pathogens are identified as carcinogenic by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC).
11 kinds of pathogens include – 1 kind of bacteria: Helicobacter pylori; 7 kinds of viruses: hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus, human papilloma virus (HPV), Epstein-Barr virus, human immunodeficiency virus, etc.; 3 kinds of parasites: Thai liver sucker worm, Clonorchis sinensis (liver fluke), Schistosoma haematobium.
