Cancer is a failure of the immune system to recognize abnormal cells. Various forms of stress which impact the brain's limbic system, which affects the endocrine and autonomic nervous systems, which affects the body's immune system response.

Most of the factors said to cause cancer, such as smoking, environmental toxins, and even some genetic causes, don't really cause cancer. Cancer is occurring all the time in the body, but when functioning correctly, the immune system identifies and destroys the cancer cells.

Chronic anger, despair, hopelessness, sadness, and core-level dishonesty - living a lie - are emotions that will negatively influence the immune response to cancer cells.
Thanks from Castle Doctrine and Sabcat

main causes of Cancer

To begin, let us define cancer.
Quote:
Cancer is not just one disease, but a large group of almost 100 diseases. Its two main characteristics are uncontrolled growth of the cells in the human body and the ability of these cells to migrate from the original site and spread to distant sites. If the spread is not controlled, cancer can result in death.
So cancer is a blanketing term for an array of diseases that have two main shared characteristics.
What kind of symptoms should be looked out for?
Quote:
Cancer is a progressive disease, and goes through several stages. Each stage may produce a number of symptoms. Some symptoms are produced early and may occur due to a tumor that is growing within an organ or a gland. As the tumor grows, it may press on the nearby nerves, organs, and blood vessels. This causes pain and some pressure which may be the earliest warning signs of cancer.
Despite the fact that there are several hundred different types of cancers, producing very different symptoms, the ACS has established the following seven symptoms as possible warning signals of cancer:

changes in the size, color, or shape of a wart or a mole
a sore that does not heal
persistent cough, hoarseness, or sore throat
a lump or thickening in the breast or elsewhere
unusual bleeding or discharge
chronic indigestion or difficulty in swallowing
any change in bowel or bladder habits
These seem to be things that are fairly easy to notice on one's own body.
What are some of the ways to treat cancer once it is found?
Quote:
Cancer treatment can take many different forms, and it is always tailored to the individual patient. The decision on which type of treatment is the most appropriate depends on the type and location of cancer, the extent to which it has already spread, the patient's age, sex, general health status and personal treatment preferences. The major types of treatment are: surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, hormone therapy, and bone-marrow transplantation.
The majority of these treatments seem to be high-risk processes, are there any other forms of treatment?
Quote:
There are a multitude of alternative treatments available to help the person with cancer. They can be used in conjunction with, or separate from, surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. Alternative treatment of cancer is a complicated arena and a trained health practitioner should be consulted.
Although the effectiveness of complementary therapies such as acupuncture in alleviating cancer pain has not been clinically proven, many cancer patients find it safe and beneficial. Bodywork therapies such as massage and reflexology ease muscle tension and may alleviate side effects such as nausea and vomiting. Homeopathy and herbal remedies used in Chinese traditional herbal medicine also have been shown to alleviate some of the side effects of radiation and chemotherapy and are being recommended by many doctors.
Certain foods including many vegetables, fruits, and grains are believed to offer protection against various cancers. However, isolation of the individual constituent of vegetables and fruits that are anti-cancer agents has proven difficult. In laboratory studies, vitamins such as A, C and E, as well as compounds such as isothiocyanates and dithiolthiones found in broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage, and beta-carotene found in carrots have been shown to protect against cancer. Studies have shown that eating a diet rich in fiber as found in fruits and vegetables reduces the risk of colon cancer. Exercise and a low fat diet help control weight and reduce the risk of endometrial, breast, and colon cancer.
Certain drugs, which are currently being used for treatment, could also be suitable for prevention. For example, the drug tamoxifen (Nolvadex), which has been very effective against breast cancer, is currently being tested by the National Cancer Institute for its ability to prevent cancer. Similarly, retinoids derived from vitamin A are being tested for their ability to slow the progression or prevent head and neck cancers. Certain studies have suggested that cancer incidence is lower in areas where soil and foods are rich in the mineral selenium. More trials are needed to explain these intriguing connections.
Seems fair enough.
Now for the question I have been longing to ask, what is recommended for the prevention of cancer?
Quote:
Prevention
According to nutritionists and epidemiologists from leading universities in the United States, a person can reduce the chances of getting cancer by following some simple guidelines:

eating plenty of vegetables and fruits
exercising vigorously for at least 20 minutes every day
avoiding excessive weight gain
avoiding tobacco (even second hand smoke)
decreasing or avoiding consumption of animal fats and red meats
avoiding excessive amounts of alcohol
avoiding the midday sun (between 11 A.M. and 3 P.M.) when the sun's rays are the strongest
avoiding risky sexual practices
avoiding known carcinogens in the environment or work place
From what I gather here the effect of cancer seems to be the cause of overall poor bodily maintenance over a period of time.
To remove one's self from the disease is impossible for one does not exist within disease, one must cleanse the disease from one's self in order to achieve ease.

Seriously? I was recently diagnosed vit D deficient but the doc never said anything about cancer, he just said it could impair cognitive function, loss of concentration etc. I must check this out, thanks for the tip-off.

bulls eye.

age.

there are a few other strong risk factors like cigarettes, sun exposure, radiation and for some people genetics. anything else is fine print, or speculative.
