30 of the most dangerous things that scientists believe cause cancer

Working as a hairdresser is extremely dangerous!
Tumors are in second place in the list of the leading causes of death in the United States. They are early on diseases of the cardiovascular system, writes Business Insider.
In the human body he constantly has damaged cells. But the body's defense mechanisms are able to identify and destroy them. The disease occurs when this mechanism is weakened and unable to cope.
To degenerate into cancer, a damaged cell requires five to forty years. This happens due to mutations in the genes (radiation, environmental toxins, carcinogens).
If a person has a genetic predisposition to a particular type of cancer, it is almost impossible to prevent cancer. But the disease can be postponed.
Science has long known that certain foods and substances that surround us increase the risk of developing cancer.
Here are 30 things you should pay attention to those who are watching their health or have a poor legacy:
1) Sugar
The passion for dessert leads not only to diabetes but also to cancer. It has long been known that sugar stimulates the growth of malignant tumors in the body – from the sweet to being power.
2) Processed products.
These are the products that have passed one or more processing steps from the point of view of food engineering. Processing increases shelf life, improves appearance and accelerates cooking times.
They contain huge amounts of sugar, which feeds cancer cells.
Interestingly, 50% of residents in developed and developing countries receive no sugar from sweets and processed products such as sauces, convenience foods, canned goods, etc. And drinks.
3) Smoking
Tobacco smoke contains at least 70 chemicals that can cause cancer. And this applies not only to active smokers but also to passive smokers, that is, to those who breathe cigarette smoke.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, passive smoking increases the risk of developing lung cancer by 20-30%. Those who use chewing tobacco are also at risk.
4) and the lack of tanning on the sunscreen of the skin.
According to the Foundation for Skin Cancer, young people aged 35 who visit the Solarium, the risk of developing melanoma increases by 75%.
Avoid intense solar radiation, it can hurt you, cover the exposed areas of the body, apply sunscreen, try to stay in the shade, especially if you have to stay out during the hot season for more than 15 minutes.
5) Toxic substances at work.
Some people (due to their profession) are forced to contact carcinogens every day. This, for example:
factory workers in the production of aluminum parts;
painters;
asphalt pavers which come into contact with carcinogenic benzene;
rubber producers;
hairdressers who come into contact with dyes;
manicure and pedicure – they also breathe dangerous vapors.
6) Night shifts.
The international cancer research agency, called night shift work, is extremely dangerous to health. People who work at night, violate the natural circadian rhythms.
This type of "biological clocks" that regulate the physiological processes in the human body depending on the moment of light or darkness. Such failures do not go unnoticed and can cause skin, lung or breast cancer.
7) Arsenic.
The inorganic form of arsenic is extremely toxic. It is often found in drinking water in countries like Bangladesh.
According to the World Health Organization, at least 140 million people in 50 countries drink water that contains a huge amount of arsenic. It also stimulates the growth of cancerous tumors.
8) Meat cooked on an open fire.
American scientists claim that under the influence of high temperature in meat they start to form a special chemistry, aromatic heterocyclic amines and polycyclic aromatic carbohydrates.
They break cell DNA. This in turn increases the risk of developing cancer, especially in men.
9) coal.
For many years miners, more often than people in other professions, have been diagnosed with lung, bladder, and stomach cancer. According to some reports, cancer causes coal dust.
10) Alcohol.
Regular consumption of alcohol increases the risk of throat, liver, breast and colon cancer.
According to the National Cancer Institute, "the risk of cancer increases in proportion to the amount of alcohol consumed".
An international team of researchers has studied data of 600,000 people in 19 countries with a high standard of living. The results showed a high risk of developing cancer of the digestive system all participants in the study.
11) of the exhaust gases.
According to the International Agency for Cancer Research, diesel oil is more than 30 components that can cause cancer.
12) Pickles and products in brine.
Salted fish, popular in China, contains large quantities of dangerous carcinogenic nitrates and nitrites. These chemical compounds can damage DNA cells, which will lead to cancer development.
According to Cancer Research UK, "immigrants from China or having Chinese roots, but currently living in Britain, more common rhinopharyngeal cancer than members of other ethnic groups", could be due to their diet.
Eating large amounts of pickled foods also increases the risk of stomach cancer.
13) Drilling.
While the perforation in the air and water are benzene and formaldehyde – chemicals that stimulate the growth of cancerous tumors.
14) Meat-based sausages, ham bacon, sausages.
According to whom, sausages, ham, bacon and sausage are potentially carcinogenic. All these products have undergone some processing – salting, smoking, fermentation, etc.
A recent study found that regular consumption of large quantities of processed meat increases the risk of developing breast cancer by 9%.
Eating a hot dog, or about two slices of bacon every day increases the risk of developing bowel cancer by 18%.
15) Asbestos.
For many years, asbestos has been used in construction as an insulating material for many years. Now this mineral is banned in 63 countries due to its toxicity and carcinogenicity.
Constant contact with asbestos dust can trigger the onset of lung, stomach and ovarian cancer. Every year due to diseases caused by asbestos, it kills more than 107 thousand people.
16) Means of glyphosate of grass.
Glyphosate is the main component of the popular Round Up herbicide. His producer is the American company Monsanto.
The World Health Organization in 2015 classified glyphosate as "probable carcinogen for humans".
At the beginning of this year Monsanto has sued more than 300 American farmers. They claim that glyphosate in popular herbicides has led to the appearance of their cancer.
Monsanto representatives believe that the scandal surrounding glyphosate is a consequence of the competitive struggle for international markets. Scientists can not yet give a definitive answer on the effects of the use of glyphosate in rural mosaics for human health.
17) wood dust.
Employees of sawmills and furniture industries, who regularly find themselves in the wood treatment process, breathing dust, prone to develop cancer of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses.
18) High levels of estrogen and contraceptives.
Women with high estrogen levels are at risk of being diagnosed with "breast cancer". It is usually women who pass menopause or girls whose periods begin.
Those who use contraceptive pills, sensitive to cervical cancer. Although there is evidence that the regular use of contraceptive hormone methods reduces the risk of developing other types of cancer – e.g. cancer of the endometrium, esophagus and ovaries.
19) Virus.

Some viruses can cause cancer. This happens when viruses break cell DNA, which in turn leads to tumor growth.
Such diseases include the human papilloma virus (causes cervical cancer), hepatitis B and C (can cause liver cancer), Epstein-Barr (can cause lymphoma growth). The H. pylori bacterium can cause stomach cancer.
20) Your genes.
Some types of cancer are transmitted from one generation to the next. Genetic mutations play a key role in about 5-10% of cancer cases.
The degree of involvement of genetic factors in cancer origin differently. For example, among breast cancer patients, hereditary forms occur in 7-15% of cases, among patients with colon cancer in 5-10% of cases.
21) Obesity.
Obesity can significantly increase the risk of breast cancer, colon, rectum, esophagus, kidney and pancreas.
22) Formaldehyde.
Formaldehyde is a colorless chemical with a strong odor, which is used in construction materials and for the production of many household products.
In the 1980s, laboratory studies have shown that formaldehyde exposure could cause nasal cancer in rats. The International Agency for Cancer Research (IARC) klassificeret formaldehyde as a human carcinogen.
23) Installations.
Data Danish scientists show that there is a connection between the implants and the particular type of tumor: large cell anaplastic lymphoma. Danes has studied the history of diseases in 43 women with this cancer over the past 26 years.
32 of them had facilities. The conclusions were clear: breast implants increase the risk of large cell anaplastic lymphoma at 421 time, ie at age 70, a 6920 woman with implants can suffer from this type of breast cancer.
24) Air pollution.
Air pollution triggers lung cancer. The Danish scientists have said so. They analyzed data from 312.944 study participants.
From 2095 he was diagnosed with lung cancer. The highest risk tended to people who lived at the same address for a long period of time. A Taiwan study found that at very high levels of air pollution the risk of developing oral cavity cancer is also increasing.
25) other types of disasters and disasters.
Firefighters who manage the debris after the September 11 attacks, as well as people working in the center of Manhattan following the tragic events, were forced to breathe the dust that had formed after the fall of the twin towers .
To 9300 of them was diagnosed 70 different types of cancer: breast, cervical, lung. 420 who was at the epicenter of the tragedy later died of cancer.
26) and silicon dioxide.
Silicosis is a professional disease of the lungs in those who regularly inhale silica gel powder or other free silica. Silicosis increases the risk of tuberculosis, bronchitis and emphysema.
Silicosis is an irreversible and incurable disease and the impact of quartz contributes to the development of lung cancer.
27) Radiation.
We know that X-rays and ultraviolet radiation cause cancer. Of course, if you do an X-ray once a year, you will not do any harm.
Tumors threaten people who have been exposed to high-dose radiation (remember Chernobyl) and those who are medically forced to undergo chemotherapy.
However, the American cancer society warns: "there is no minimum dose of radiation that can be considered safe".
28) Long-term chronic inflammation.
It can cause chronic infections, intestinal diseases or obesity. This inflammation damages the DNA of human cells. This in turn leads to cancer.
29) Plastic bottles and containers.
The material from which it is made of plastic, is very toxic. We all know that toxins penetrate every surface they come into contact with.
Compounds in the composition of plastic, when ingested, destroy it at the cellular level and cause health problems.
30) Sex on the first date.
Before going to the very pleasant, test partner for the presence of human papillomavirus. Because it is sexually transmitted and eventually causes cancer.
Many forms of the virus disappear by themselves and relatively harmless, but others can cause cancer of the cervix or penis. Even a condom can not protect you from 100% disease.
This is why it is recommended that men and women vaccinate against HPV before the first potential sexual contact.
What is the point of this list was open to you? Which of these things are constantly present in your life?
