Hit the weakness of the cancer
The famous Hong Kong film and television actor Savio Tsang Wai Kuen died of lung cancer in 2020. Li Yong, a famous CCTV host, died in the United States in 2018 due to laryngeal carcinoma. Benny Chan Muk Sing, a famous Hong Kong director, died of Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma in 2020.
Cancer happens all around us.
People turn pale at the mention of cancer because cancer is difficult to detect in the early stage and is usually in the middle and advanced stages once it is diagnosed.
Do you really understand cancer? Can cancer be prevented?
On the evening of April 10th, in the expert live broadcast room of the 3rd "Universal participation and sharing of benefits - National Health" public welfare activity, Professor Zhao Ping, also the former president of the Cancer Hospital of the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, the former chairman of the Cancer Foundation of China and the chairman of the cancer prevention and treatment committee of the Chinese Association of Geriatric Research, popularized what cancer is and how to scientifically prevent and treat cancer.
Basic conditions and causes of tumor incidence
According to the annual report released by the China Cancer Registry, in 1998 at the end of the last century, the incidence of cancer in China was 216/100,000, and in 2015 it had risen to 286/100,000. Roughly calculated, there are about 1 million new cancer patients in China every year compared with the last century.
With the improvement of living conditions, the life expectancy of the Chinese population has increased rapidly, and now it has reached over 76 years old. Analysis of Chinese tumor registry data shows that more than 60% of malignant tumors occur in people aged 60 and over. That is to say, among the 250 million elderly people, 2.4 million new malignant tumors occur every year.
According to the development trend of China's aging, the growth of China's elderly population is still rising, and the continuous increase in the incidence of cancer in China is difficult to change in the short term.
So, what are the causes of cancer?
President Zhao Ping introduced 11 well-documented causes of cancer, including smoking, infection, alcohol consumption, dietary structure, food carcinogens, lack of exercise, exposure to sunlight, environmental carcinogens, ionizing radiation, occupational carcinogens and drugs.
2. Is cancer hereditary?
In recent years, the rising incidence of cancer has made many people feel anxious, and many people have questioned whether cancer can be inherited and whether cancer can be contagious?
In the introduction of "On the Infectiousness of Cancer", Professor Zhao Ping explained that cancer is indeed a genetic disease. Some cancers such as colon cancer and breast cancer have a genetic predisposition, and genetic testing has also confirmed familial gene defects.
However, with the deepening and popularization of research, it is found that the proportion of familial cancer evidence is less and less, and people pay more attention to the carcinogenic risk of external factors.
In fact, no evidence of cancer infectiousness has yet been found. However, some cancers are indeed related to some infectious viruses and bacteria.
For example, hepatitis virus can cause liver cancer; human papillomavirus can cause cervical cancer; Helicobacter pylori can cause stomach cancer. These viruses and bacteria are contagious.
3. Is cancer preventable and how should it be prevented?
In 1980, the World Health Organization pointed out that 1/3 of all cancer cases are preventable. In 2006, the World Health Organization adjusted this figure to 40% at the IARC meeting held in Lyon, France.
The United States has reduced the incidence of lung cancer by controlling smoking. The incidence of esophageal cancer in Linzhou, Henan, China, has dropped by nearly 50% after 40 years of efforts. Facts have eloquently proved that the incidence of disease can be controlled by identifying the cause of the disease and cutting off the cancer-causing pathway.
When asked how to prevent cancer, Prof. Zhao Ping replied: "According to the AJCC tumor staging, the 5-year survival rate of stage 1 cancer can reach 90% after timely treatment, while stage 4 cancer, also known as advanced cancer, 5 The annual survival rate is less than 10%. Therefore, early diagnosis and early treatment is an important strategic measure for cancer prevention and treatment."
So, if you unfortunately get cancer, is there no hope of cure?
Professor Zhao Ping said, "The diagnosis and treatment technology of tumors is improving with each passing day, and the cure rate of tumors is gradually improving. The latest report shows that the overall 5-year survival rate of cancer in the United States is close to 70%.
I think that if the overall 5-year survival rate of cancer exceeds 50%, cancer patients can build enough confidence to face cancer; doctors can also confidently say: cancer does not mean death! "
1. In the early treatment of tumors, can it be treated with traditional Chinese medicine?
Precancerous lesions involve a process that cannot be reversed if cancer has been diagnosed, but in the process of early treatment of tumors, hope can be placed on traditional Chinese medicine. Chinese medicine has a history of thousands of years and can be said to be a treasure trove. The question is how do we dig it. Traditional Chinese medicine and Western medicine should work together to study how to transform precancerous lesions into normal, and traditional Chinese medicine should be able to "prevent disease".
2. Are there any new anti-cancer drugs?
After entering the 21st century, anticancer drugs have reached the highest stage of historical development. The first is the availability of targeted therapy drugs, which solve many problems. Secondly, there are newly developed targeted therapy drugs every year. Now there are many new drugs entering the research system. All people with cancer must have the confidence to live.
3. Can anticancer drugs be taken together with traditional Chinese medicines such as Ganoderma lucidum?
With the queuing up of the famous doctor's consultation number, it can be seen that the common people are thirsty for traditional Chinese medicine treatment. Most of the current tumor treatment is Western medicine treatment, but the treatment methods have serious side effects. Some patients can't bear the side effects and give up treatment. A very important supplement, anti-cancer drugs can be eaten together with traditional Chinese medicine.
4. How to reduce recurrence or metastasis in cancer patients after surgery?
At present, most of the cancer treatment methods are surgical treatment. It is very important to remove the tumor first. However, there is no way to clean the second and third stage tumors. Now, adjuvant radiotherapy and chemotherapy can still be cured. After surgery, it is very important to improve the body's immunity so that new cancers do not appear again. Traditional Chinese medicine has made a difference in improving immunity. Now there are many people who have cancer and live for more than ten years.
Through the Q&A of Director Zhao Ping, it can be seen that traditional Chinese medicine also plays a great role in the comprehensive treatment of tumors, and can achieve "preventive treatment" and "prevention of lesions".
Xiaozhi Classroom Online "Science Science"
Ganoderma lucidum has a flat nature, non-toxicity, and long-term consumption, it is the only "top-grade medicine" among thousands of Chinese herbal medicines that can enter the Five Classics.
Ganoderma lucidum can enter the five internal organs, can help the human body to detoxify and at the same time support the righteousness, while strengthening the righteousness and expelling the evil spirits, truly "supporting the righteousness and consolidating the root", so as to achieve the purpose of curing diseases.
