Cancer 101 | National Geographic


– [Narrator] Today cancer causes one in every seven deaths worldwide. But how does cancer start, and what is being done to combat it? Our bodies contain trillions
of highly specialized cells and each carries genes responsible for regulating cell growth and division. But when a genetic change
disrupts this process cells begin to grow and
divide uncontrollably thereby becoming cancer. The genetic changes that cause cancer usually happen in three types of genes. Proto-oncogenes, which signal
a cell to grow and divide. Tumor suppressor genes, which signal a cell to stop dividing. And DNA repair genes, which preserve and maintain genetic codes. Changes in these genes lead
to abnormal cell growth resulting in masses of
tissues called tumors. Tumors may be benign, meaning
that they remain in one area, or malignant, which means that they are capable of spreading. Through a process called metastasis a malignant tumor’s cells
will eventually break off, travel throughout the body, and begin forming tumors in other regions. When this happens the
cancer has become metastatic and is most dangerous. The cause of cancer is still a mystery. Inherited traits may be behind some of the genetic changes that lead to the formation
of cancerous cells, and so might environmental exposures. Such as excessive radiation from the sun, or chemicals in cigarette smoke. In the United States today
roughly one-third of all people will eventually develop cancer. Of the over 100 different types of cancer breast cancer is currently
the most prevalent type, and lung cancer causes the most deaths. But our ability to fight
cancer is improving. Since just the 1990s
cancer mortality rates have dropped more than 26% in the US, and more than two million
lives have been saved. As treatments and methods
of early detection improve, and doctors, scientists, and the public better understand cancer, hope remains in the fight
against the disease.

It was in a mole on her arm, they shaved off the mole, then did a touch of of surgery to ensure she wouldn't get it.

After 7 years of treatment, it's been 6 years and I'm cancer free… I've heard people say that though the doctors are really good but they don't know how it feels to go through the cancer journey, how everything feels and etc but I know all these, I've experienced it. And from then I've made my decision to become an oncologist and become an inspiration for all those who are suffering.

  • Cheat Cancer: How I Survived 18 Years Using Supplements – Kindle Edition By George Wieland The bulk of the book is an account of the 37 supplements Wieland used in his successful fight against cancer, including the dosages for each as well as the different cancers they act upon.
    Wieland suggests four basic books if one is to research supplements. He then describes the key physiological mechanisms on which supplements operate: (1) Differentiation or normalizing cancerous tissues, (2) Apoptosis or programmed cell death of cancer cells, (3) COX-2, elimination of dangerous inflammation, (4) Angiogenesis or the growth of new blood vessels by tumors, (5) 5-LOX, an inflammatory enzyme that fosters the progression of cancer, (6) NF-kB, the protection of cancer cells against the body’s normal defense mechanisms.
    Wieland’s four main strategies in his fight against cancer were: (1) Synergies or multiple supplements in low doses rather than just a few supplements at high doses, (2) Multiple inexpensive supplements rather than fewer that are expensive, (3) Whole herb extracts that include a host of anti-cancer ingredients rather than purified extracts of a single anti-cancer ingredient. (4) Use of repeated laboratory tests to see if various supplements are working, or not.

  • Who actually believe they going to release or develop a cancer cure? I certainly don’t! Is basic knowledge that illnesses is profit for the medical industry, so treatment or keeping people alive are the only MAIN goal.

    When I was working as a RT — respiratory therapist— Med. business is pretty dark/unfair. Med. providers only focus on treatment and practice modern medical skill to keep patient alive. Doctors only talk about treatment and better benefits and basically gave up for cures. Is basically just money insurance, treatments, next visit, repeat. One time they skipped out a patient — he was treated several times before — who insurance didn’t pass and his cancer got worse when he came back. All providers and nursing were antisocial about it and left the poor guy for preventible or unnecessary treatments. Is a world with dark people outdoor so pray for the best.

  • There has already been many cures for cancer. But when people found out cures the government and higher status people destroyed the mans lab and all his stuff was lost. I don't really understand what donating to cancer does they have so muh money already and im pretty sure it doesnt cost a trillion for each set of equipment. What do they do with the money does it even actually go to cancer? Also the same for all the homeless kids or sick kids o forgot the name they have raised over MILLIONS of dollars yet theres still a whole bunch of kids homeless or sick. I dont understand, if iI donate the money like everyone else the money should go DIRECTLY to the people that need it. Not to the government, not to some random person. To the people. That. Need. It.
