Treating cancer differently

Posted by Chauncey Garduno on June 26, 2018 in Perth News |

Many of us battle against cancer. It is one of the most feared diseases amongst many Australians as it is one of the leading causes of deaths in the country. It is not just a myth or misconception that cancer is a terrible disease, however common ideas and myths we believe about how cancer starts and spreads are often scientifically wrong.

First, let us learn about cancer as a disease. There are over 100 types of cancer and each type has different symptoms diagnostic tests and treatment options. As a result, there are many terminologies and phrases that are used to describe the type, symptoms and diagnosis of cancer, and treatment methods.

Understanding cancer is often very confusing as well as frustrating to understand. Especially when you are just reading articles about cancer, it becomes very confusing to absorb too many medical jargons or terminologies are used in describing this condition. It is too hard for readers to understand the context of the topic or take any action. As a result, the information is often misinterpreted or not fully understood or comprehended.

With the advancement in modern medicine and the advent of chemotherapy, treating cancer is still almost impossible and expensive. The cancer industry spends virtually nothing of its multi-billion dollar resources on prevention strategies, such as dietary advice, exercise, and obesity education. Instead, it pours its money into treating cancer – chemotherapy drugs, radiotherapy, surgeries, and diagnostic technologies. However, there is still no certainty on how to cure cancer.

Keep in mind that that if you get cancer, it is not merely the draw of bad luck or it is inevitable. If you eat and live right, you still stand a good chance of preventing the development of cancer. Therefore, you need to take preventive steps today. It is much easier to prevent cancer than to treat it once it takes hold.

Cancer can be treated differently than what we previously believed. Check out this post for more details: https://thewest.com.au/lifestyle/health-wellbeing/treating-cancer-differently-ng-b88803872z
