Observation 1. Conquer Cancer by not getting it in the first place
Cancer is a preventable disease, or at least partially, through minor changes in lifestyle, diet and avoiding risk factors. Become more informed by reading this insightful Thomas Goestz article
Extract : Cancer is perhaps the most frightening of all diseases we face. And the thing is, it's very often entirely preventable. If we simply made some different decisions, earlier, many cancers would never happen.That sounds like an audacious statement. Cancer after all, comes "out of the blue" -- we report that it happened "suddenly," that it came "without warning." It is the proverbial bolt of lightning that changes our lives all in one strike. How could we prevent lightning? But in fact, a newly emerging consensus holds that 90 percent of cancers are rooted in environmental or behavioral causes].
Friends, family, colleagues, anonymous web readers with unhealthy habits and lifestyle ... wakey wakey... Why are you risking it? When you experience the pain and suffering of cancer down the line you will regret your early arrogance and ignorance. Go to a local hospice or an oncologist department and see the pain and impact that cancer has.
My oncologist said a possible cause of my cancer was radiation and the most likely source of the radiation was long distance flights. Mmm no international holidays or business trips, tough decision but avoidable. Very low risk and I was unlucky, but suggested to sit in centre rows and let radiation filter through other passengers first. Where do Pilots sit when they are travelling back with the passengers? A. In the center/ aisle rows away from the windows.
Get informed, know the risks, make better decisions.
What lifestyle changes should you make?
