Transcript of Cancer - Sahil Samuel

Cancer starts in the cells of a person. When
there is cancer in a body, cells grow at an uncontrollable speed. When many of these cells are capable to separate uncontrollably, it is a called a tumour. When a tumour spreads rapidly, it can be cancerous or a more scientific word would be malignant. When a tumour grows slowly, and stays
in one spot, it usually isn't cancerous. That is
a benign tumour.

Normal blood cells are small and move easily...
...compared to cancer cells which are fairly large.
Cancer is one of the most fastest
growing diseases in the world. In
Canada, 487 people are diagnosed
with it daily, and 205 people die
of it daily on average. Because it is
spreading so rapidly, it's necessary
that we are all aware of this
horrible disease and how to prevent
this nightmare from happening to any
one of us.
A Basic Idea
Cancer can start anywhere where there are l living cells, therefore, cancer can be found
in almost every part of the human
body. The 9 most common types of
cancers are, Skin Cancer,
Bladder Cancer, Breast
Cancer, Colon Cancer,
Endometrial Cancer,
Kidney Cancer,
Leukemia (blood
cancer), and
lung cancer.
Cancer doesn't just
happen because it feels
like happening.There are
foods that contribute to
the growth of cancer.
Here are the top 5
foods that are the most
cancer causing.
Hot dogs are the number
one cancer causing food. They
have nitrites that are put into the
hot dogs to preserve them. All
meats have a compound called amines
which when combined with nitrites
make another chemical called
carcinogens. This chemical leads to
cancers like oral/cavity cancer,
urinary/bladder cancer, oesophagus
cancer, and many more.
The second most
dangerous types of food
are processed meats like
bacon, ham, and roast beef.
Like hot dogs, these meats
also contain nitrites and
amines to make the same
chemical called carcinogens.
The third most
cancerous food is the
doughnut. This delicious
treat is made of
hydrogenated oils, white
flour, sugar, and acrylamides.
The 4 ingredients are
capable to intrigue the
start of cancer.
Did you know that taller people are at a higher risk of cancer because there are more vulnerable cells in their body?
The next most cancer
prone foods are french fries.
These Belgian delights are
now fried in hydrogenated oils
at very high temperatures. This
can clog arteries. They also
contain acrylamide which after
too much consumption can
lead to cancer.
Lastly but certainly
not least, foods like chips, crackers, and cookies can trigger cancer to grow in your body. They all have white flour, sugar, and trans fat which cause cancer.
By now
you might think
that cancer is an
unpreventable disease,
but there are foods
that restrain cancer
from starting in your
Vegetables like broccoli cauliflower, kale, brussel sprouts, and many more have lutein and zeaxanthin which decrease the chances of men getting prostate cancer.
Liver, beans, oranges,
avocado, and aspharagus have foliate, which helps
prevent pancreatic cancer.
They all are also rich in
Onions, chives, leeks and garlic have allium compounds which build your immune system to prevent stomach cancer.
In conclusion, cancer is a VERY harmful disease that can be prevented just by little dietary changes. I hope that this presentation wasn’t a waste of time but a good knowledgeable use of it. Thank you!
