There are few dominant triggers for cancer, however these triggers culminate into cancer only when the mental health has collapsed. So if one has rich amalgamation of mental and physical health, cancer cannot sip in. Now we shall explore what are the triggers for cancer.
Genetics and Cancer : - Some types of cancer run in certain families, but most cancers are not clearly linked to the genes we inherit from our parents.
Tobacco and Cancer :- The new study published in the journal states that cigarette smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals, including 43 known cancer-triggering (carcinogenic) compounds and 400 other toxins. These cigarette ingredients include nicotine, tar, and carbon monoxide, as well as formaldehyde, ammonia, hydrogen cyanide, arsenic, and DDT.
Diet and Physical Activity: - Food is the fuel for the body. Imagine how your vehicle performs when you fill adulterated fuel. Hence, it is very vital for us to consume stable organic diet rich in nutrients. Market today is flooded with food items loaded with carcinogens and owing to the fast paced life, such edible items loaded with carcinogens have become staple food. To lead a healthy life one should completely avoid ready to eat and processed food items, aerated and bottled drinks, excessive alcohol, excessive consumption of red meat and poultry, canned food, hydrogenated oils, genetically modified processed and refined foods.
While food fuels the body, physical activity ensures that all the body parts are exercised enough to eliminate any stored waste and toxin. You may know people who are smokers and drinkers and yet healthy, this can be only due to the fact that their mental health is sound and they are exercising their bodies thereby draining all the carcinogens and other waste material from the body.
Sun and UV Exposure: - Overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun or sunbeds can trigger skin cancer.
Radiation Exposure and Cancer Risk : - The probability of occurrence of cancer increases with exposure to electromagnetic or nuclear radiations. Also, exposure to heavy metals like mercury, lead etc can trigger cancer.

Most of the time, when someone is diagnosed with cancer, the first question to the self is “Why me?” and could be the case that the patient may not be a smoker or alcohol consumer. That even intensifies the question. The answer is very simple, as you have realized till now there are various factors that lead to cancer and the weed of cancer is result of the carcinogens one may have consumed over a longer period of time consciously or unconsciously. Carcinogens are prevalent everywhere right from water you drink, food you eat to air you inhale. But at the same time humans have been blessed with wonderful gift called intellect and highly evolved physique that if nurtured can regularly flush out the carcinogens. There are millions of people working in nuclear plants, metal industry, health industry. Do all of them end up having cancer? NO. Reason is simple they have built their mental and physical health to cherish the wonders of life.
As we all know, we have been blessed with higher intellect and the nervous system that we posses is responsible for enriching and making this lifetime a heavenly experience. The root of all health is in the brain and the mind. The trunk of it is in emotion. The branches and leaves are the body. The flower of health blooms when all parts work together.
