Cancer and environment

Cancer and environment

Cancer is one of the most dangerous and deadliest illnesses in the world and no one knows the exact cause. Some scientists say that it is genetics, stress, lifestyle, pollution, chemicals, cigarettes and other factors, but still we are not 100 percent sure.
What we do know is that some chemicals can cause human cancer. If we take a look at the United States we can come to a conclusion that more than sixty percent of people have cancer because of cigarettes and diet.

Still it is sixty, not one hundred percent, so what about the rest? Some studies have shown that environmental factors play a big role when it comes to cancer.
Scientists are convinced that environmental contaminants are jeopardizing our health, but they are not able to explore that effect, because our lifestyle, genetics and other factors intertwine.
What we do know that since the day we were born we are exposed to so many different carcinogens in our food and even in our air, water, etc.
Some of you probably didn’t know that benzene often causes human leukemia, then we have radon which is a radioactive gas and you can find it in almost every home, and unfortunately radon can give you a lung cancer.

Benzene and radon are not the only carcinogens, you also have aflatoxins, asbestos, hexavalent chromium and vinyl chloride.
Experts on the other hand will say that lifestyle factors such as diet, alcohol, stress and smoking have the biggest impact on us, especially when we compared them with environment, but it is still very important for them to decrease the impact environment has on human health.
