Reduce the risk of cancer
Cancer Disease: Nowadays, cancer cases are increasing rapidly. Cancer is increasing rapidly especially in young people and women. Health experts say that carelessness related to our lifestyle is also the reason for the increase in cancer. In the last few years, more cases of breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer and stomach cancer have been reported.
Dr. Jyotika Jain, Director and Senior Consultant, Radiation Oncology, Narayana Hospital, Gurugram says that awareness about the increasing cases of cancer in the new generation is very important. Especially those people who smoke, vape or drink alcohol are at higher risk of cancer. Let us know from Dr. Jyotika Jain how the risk of cancer in youth can be reduced.
not being physically active
Dr. Jyotika Jain says that due to busy lifestyle, people are not able to remain physically active. Be it at home or office, not being physically active increases the risk of cancer. It is very important for you to exercise regularly for at least half an hour every day. Therefore, if you are not able to go to the gym, then do cycling, jogging and walking.
E cigarettes also dangerous
The trend of e-cigarettes has increased rapidly among the youth. In fact, e-cigarettes, which have come into use to get rid of smoking addiction, also increase the risk of cancer. Their coil contains harmful chemicals like formaldehyde, nicotine, tin, copper, lead and chromium and this coil is used to heat the vapor of e-cigarette. This rapidly increases the risk of lung cancer. Dr. Jyotika says that it is important to avoid this addiction.
Dr. Jyotika says that you should not use plastic utensils to heat food in the oven because when heated, plastic releases harmful chemicals called endocrine disrupting chemicals, which enter the body along with the food. This increases the risk of cancer further.
