Can I prevent cancer relapse and secondary cancer? I am referring to both my own cancer relapsing and/or many of the secondary cancers that I am at increased risk of.
And I am referring to your own cancer if you are a cancer survivor. I am writing a post about preventing cancer relapse as well as preventing a secondary cancer because I read the study linked below this morning. I realized that the study points to much of what I do with my own cancer prevention efforts.
I was diagnosed with an incurable blood cancer, multiple myeloma, in 1994. Four years of aggressive conventional therapies left me with a series of short, long-term and late stage side effects preceded by
“We can do nothing more for you Mr. Emerson.”
The vast majority of those therapies that I write about on PeopleBeatingCancer.org and have included in my own life are evidence-based, non-conventional therapies. When I say “non-conventional,” I mean those therapies that have not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration aka the FDA.
I understand why the FDA does what it does. I understand the basic ideas about selling drugs.
But it is important to point out that conventional oncology failed me. I can’t overstate how seriously this failure was. What other products or service can charge you $250,000.00 only to show no benefit and leave the patient/consumer with systemic, life threatening physical and mental damage?
Further, once I figured out that conventional therapies had a serious down side aka adverse events aka side effects, I set about researching and employing evidence-based non-conventional therapies.
Which bringes me to the focus of this post.
My cancer prevention efforts, that is to say preventing my cancer relapsing as well as preventing a treatment-related secondary cancer, are:
Full disclosure- I sunburned regularly as a teen, I drank too much beer in my twenties, my diet was no where close to the above and I didn’t practice safe sex. My point is that this post is not about cancer prevention, it is about preventing my cancer relapsing as well as preventing treatment-related secondary cancer.
Have you been diagnosed with cancer? Are you a cancer survivor yourself? Let me know-
“More than two thirds of premature cancer-related deaths — 3.6 million, or 68% — were potentially preventable through lifestyle changes or early detection efforts, such as cancer screening, dietary changes, or smoking cessation, and about one third — 1.65 million, or 31% — may have been treatable…
Nilanjan Chatterjee, PhD, Bloomberg Distinguished Professor, Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland, said the study does a “great job in bringing a lot of diverse data together to show there is very high potential for preventing premature deaths due to cancer worldwide…”
However, for a variety of reasons, Chatterjee explained, one should not “overinterpret” the high percentage of potentially preventable cancer deaths…
“It’s likely many cancer deaths are, in theory, preventable, but the numbers around just how many are necessarily vague,” said Meyerowitz-Katz. “Also, ‘in theory preventable’ doesn’t necessarily mean that we can actually do it in practice…”
The study, led by researchers from the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and partners, provides estimates of premature deaths from 36 cancers across 185 countries…
Reducing exposure to four main risk factors —
would go a long way toward reducing potentially preventable premature cancer-related deaths, the authors said…
“Improved cancer treatments and cancer detection methods are not likely to completely eradicate the burden of cancer. Primary prevention of cancer is a logical strategy to use to control cancer while also seeking novel treatments and earlier detection…”
