Beauty research: most cancers are just bad luck
According to the US Fox News website, a new study in the United States found that in most cases, people with cancer are only because of bad luck, and the risk of cancer caused by factors such as unhealthy lifestyles, eating habits and even genetics is relatively small.
Researchers at Johns Hopkins University in the United States compared 31 different cancers.
Of these, only nine types of cancer are thought to be linked to a genetic and unhealthy lifestyle.
And two-thirds of cancers are caused by mutations in cells that are “unlucky” during division.
Breast and prostate cancers were excluded from the study.
The most common cause of cancer is mainly because the DNA has been incorrectly divided, causing genetic mutations.
The more these mutations accumulate, the greater the risk that normal cells will evolve into polymers.
The incidence of cancer is higher in some parts of the body, and cells regenerate faster, creating more random mutations.
Researchers point out that stem cells are usually the only cell type that produces tumors, and even they make up a small percentage of the total cells.
Christian Thomasmasti, an assistant professor of oncology at Johns Hopkins University and one of the authors of the study, said he hopes the research will advance medical researchers to the early detection and treatment of cancers caused by abnormal cell division.
For example, research indicates that brain tumors, lung cancer, cervical cancer, testicular cancer, and bone cancers that occur in the head, limbs, legs, and pelvis, occur in non-smokers, and even lifestyle changes may not affect this.Too much help.
Scientists should focus more resources to intervene in the early detection of this cancer so that they can be cured as soon as possible.
However, this study may be a negation of a healthy lifestyle.
Thomasti pointed out that having lung and skin cancer is clearly related to smoking and sunlight.
Not smoking, cutting alcohol, maintaining a healthy weight, avoiding sunburn and maintaining a positive attitude can help reduce the risk of some of these cancers.
