Products that trigger the development of pancreatic cancer
If a morning snack sandwich with bacon onwork all day to eat chocolate and other sweets, and evening dinner of fried chicken with sweet soda, the risk of cancer will increase by five times. In women, this show is even higher - to all other types of disease they add more and breast cancer.
Addicted to chocolate, candy, candiedfruits and carbonated beverages people at risk of pancreatic cancer, which is considered the most deadly type of cancer. This conclusion came the Swedish Dr. Susanna Larsson and his colleagues.
Scientists have observed the 77 797 men and womenat the age of 45-83 years for almost seven years. Participants of the project, every day Eat 5 servings of sugar (for example, preferred to sweetened tea or coffee) to 69% more likely to develop cancer than nesladkoezhki. For those who drank more than two day sweet alcoholic beverage, a risk of cancer has increased by 93%.
According to the authors, so far doctors have not linked the occurrence of pancreatic cancer with higher intake of sugary foods.
Perhaps this is because most peopleeating sweets is still limited and in small quantities. But now it is evident that the sweetness increases the risk of cancers of this type of.
Pancreatic cancer - one of the most serious forms ofcancers virtually incurable. Most patients are diagnosed with the die within 5 years after the discovery of the cancer cells. The disease, according to doctors, is caused by increased production of insulin by the pancreas. Since an increase in insulin levels is a natural reaction to the increased consumption of sugar, the body a sweet tooth simply forced to work in this mode, which most often leads to disease.
The inclusion in the daily menu, yellow and greenvegetables - corn, carrots, onions, spinach, cabbage - may reduce the risk of pancreatic cancer by half. That is the conclusion reached by researchers at the University of California San Francisco, examined more than two thousand people, including more than five hundred patients with this form of cancer.
"A significant reduction in risk by simply changingDiet does this change the most practical way to the terrible disease prevention ", - says head of research professor of epidemiology and biostatistics Elizabeth Holly. Pancreatic cancer - one of the most dangerous forms of cancer, which is diagnosed as a rule, in an already running state, since the pancreas is hidden by other organs, making it difficult to diagnose. Life expectancy after diagnosis is usually limited to a few months, and less than 5% of patients are alive five years later.
Injection of large doses of ascorbic acid -Vitamin C - slow down the rate of cancer growth by 50%, according to an article published by a group of American scientists in one of the most popular publications. Through experiments on mice, the authors showed that injections of vitamin C reduces the growth rate and weight of brain tumors, pancreas and ovary. This is due to the fact that due to the ascorbic acid in the fluid around the tumor produces a large amount of hydrogen peroxide that can kill cancer cells. Healthy cells is not damaged.
Upon receipt of ascorbic acid in tablet formor with food physiological mechanisms in the body does not produce its concentration exceeds a certain level. "If you eat the food of more than 200 milligrams of vitamin C per day, for example, two oranges and a serving of broccoli, your body does not give up the concentration of ascorbic acid in the blood above a certain level", - says lead study author Mark Levine of the National Institute of Health.
To overcome these control mechanisms,ascorbic acid researchers injected into the veins or in the peritoneal cavity of rodents with brain tumors, ovarian or pancreatic cancer. Thus, they were able to introduce high-dose vitamin - more than 4 grams per kilogram of body weight per day. Vitamin C plays an important role in the body, its shortage leads to scurvy and, ultimately, death. This substance is an antioxidant that protects cells from the harmful effects of free radicals.
The study's authors suggest that at highVitamin C doses will play the opposite role in generating free radicals, and contributing to the formation of hydrogen peroxide, which, according to experts' assumption can kill cancer cells. In experiments with 43 varieties of cancer, and five types of healthy cells, scientists found that ascorbic acid is 75% of the effect on cancer cells. In experiments on mice with cancer, injections of vitamin C reduced the rate of tumor growth by 41-53%.
Interest in vitamin C as a treatment for cancer originatedAbout 30 years ago, when a series of studies have shown the potential benefits of its use for tumors. However, it was later found that in vitamin tablets no effect on tumors in human cancer patients. According to Levin, is currently planning future clinical trials of new anti-cancer agent based on vitamin C.
