The Human Body

The human body is a complex and wondrous living machine. 

Like any machine, our bodies are composed of smaller parts that work together with the various tasks.

These tasks are performed each day such as breathing eating and digesting food and the movement of our blood. They are performed by specialized structures known as organs.


Examples of organs include the lungs, stomach, heart, and brain.

All of these organs and other body parts like our skin and muscles are made of smaller living units called cells.

Cancerous diseases occur as a result of the excessive, uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells, which invade (grow into) and destroy other body tissues.

This makes its cell growth different from normal cell growth.

Instead of dying, these cells continue to grow and form new, abnormal cells. They develop in almost any organ or tissue of the body.

The origin of these changes is a result of damage to DNA.

DNA is in every cell and directs all its actions of which replication or growth is our major concern.

Learning more about cancer is an effective method of prevention.

The more you know the more likely you are to get frequent screenings and notice the symptoms early, if you fall ill.

It is worth finding out more about the different kinds of cancer cells first.

Cancer is defined as the rapid and uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in an organ, gland, or other types of body tissue.

As these cells grow, they go on to form a larger formation called a tumor.

It should be pointed out that cancer usually refers to malignant tumors and not to benign ones.

Cancer is a disease that is characterized by the growth of uncontrollable cells.

It is undoubtedly one of the most widespread diseases in the world. It is a menace threatening the lives of many people.

It the body when the spoiled cells divide uncontrollably, they form lumps of tissues known as tumors.

Cancerous tumors have very detrimental effects on the nervous, digestive, and circulatory systems and also secrete hormones that affect the body function.

There is however some tumors that remain in one spot and show limited growth thus considered as benign.

When the doctor comes back with that news that you have developed cancer, your world can come to a stop.

You must fight cancer daily with a positive attitude!

What Things Do You Think About?

A million and one things go through your head and it’s hard to get through the confusion and put together a rational thought.

Many, many people have gone through some type of cancer, even as survivors themselves or through someone they love.

So you can find plenty of moral support via live groups, online chat rooms and forums, and other areas.

People today are faced with so many distorted facts about cancer and too many just accept what they hear or read.

Most will blindly follow authority without stopping and applying a bit of common sense.

The following is information on what we are being told and believe to be the truth about cancer as well as facts we’re not being told.

Myth 1 – People believe that cancer is a result of fate or bad luck, not the result of something they did.

Fact – All cancers no matter where they appear in or on the body are caused by the way we now live.
