Your cancer risk: So much more than just genetics

by , 23 March 2015

Environmental factors are to blame for the other 90%.

And that means there's something you can do to protect yourself from getting it.

Read on to discover which environmental factors are putting you at most risk so you can keep yourself and your family safe from this devastating disease.

Your Body’s #1 Defence Against Cancer Is…
There's a smart way to fight cancer—and it is not by cutting it out, burning it out, or poisoning yourself hoping that the cancer dies before you do.
No, the smart way to fight cancer is to separate the good cells from the bad.
No chemo drug can do that.
But your own immune system can. It’s always your first line of defence. So anything you can do to strengthen it will guard against invaders like rogue cancer cells.

What environmental factors are to blame for cancer?

We all know that smoking causes cancer (it’s printed on your cigarette box, after all) but it’s not the only the carcinogen that substantially increases your risk of developing cancer.
Carcinogens and pollutant in the air and water, as well as pesticides on your food and clothes, can increase your cancer risk too. 
In fact, warn researchers at the Natural Health Dossier, anything that “kills” anything else, is dangerous to you too – no matter what their health labels say. 
This because traces of these toxins seep into your body and reside there – ultimately boosting your body’s toxin burden. Too much, and your cells start to mutate and you can develop diseases like cancer. 
And then there are the common chemicals you find in a variety of your personal care products like hygiene products and washing powder. From parabens, formaldehyde, mineral oils and even aluminium, your personal care product are brimming with chemicals, artificial colours, synthetic fragrances, thickeners and preservatives that can cause cancer. 
And let’s not forget medication you take each day. 
As Dr Bruce and Elizabeth Chabner explain: “Certain drugs and medical treatments may increase the risk of developing cancer. For example, oestrogens in oral contraceptives may slightly increase the risk of breast cancer. [While] the hormones oestrogen and progestin that may be given to women during menopause (hormone replacement therapy) also increase the risk of breast cancer
While many of these environmental factors are directly to blame for cancer, that’s not the only reason you need to keep an eye on them. 
Why environmental factors are so important in your cancer prevention plan
Studies show that if your family history puts you at risk of cancer, these environmental factors can alter your genetic interaction and cause cancer much faster.
And that’s why it’s important to understand what your cancer risk is and do what you can to change it.
