The rise of Esophageal cancer and how to make it stop
Esophageal cancer is one of the least studied and deadliest cancers worldwide because of its extremely aggressive nature and poor survival rate. According to the American cancer society, this disease is 3 to 4 times more common among men than among women. So, here what do you need to know about oesphageal cancer and how to make it stop.
There are many lifestyle - related issues that may lead to a diagnosis of Esophageal cancer. According to cancer research UK, esophageal cancer incidence rates have increased by 6% in the UK since the early 1990.
The two most common types of esophageal cancer are: Adenocarcinoma, which begins in the cells of mucus-secreting glands in the esophagus, and squamous cell carcinoma. The squamous cells are flat, thin cells that line the surface of the esophagus.
What are the symptoms of esophageal cancer and how to make it stop?
The symptoms of oesphageal cancer, as explained by the American Cancer society are: trouble swallowing, Chest pain, weightloss hoarseness, chronic cough, vomiting, hiccups, pneumonia, bone pain and bleeding into the esophagus (dark stool). If you are having any of these symptoms, it is important that you consult a doctor to receive a proper diagnosis. One tool that doctors use to describe the stage is the TNM system.
Understanding about esophageal cancer and how to make it stop must start with what scientific research reveals, in terms of non-invasive treatments, that have the ability to stop cancerous cells proliferating. It is important, to more specifically focus on treatments that were directly tested in esophagus cancer cells. There are 3 scientifically proven, plant derived nutritional dietary additions, that have been shown to be successful against esophageal cancer, and have been observed to reduce its incidence.
1) Garcinia kola
This plant is widely available in Africa, and it has countless health benefits. It has also been reported to be effective in stopping the proliferation of the ebola virus. But, this plant has also been raved for its anti cancer capabilities. This is because Garcinia Kola is rich in Tannins, which had been observed to have remarkable activity in cancer prevention. But, most importantly, it is rich in lignin, quercetin and resveratrol which can decrease the risk of esophageal cancer.
2) black raspberries
Fruit and vegetable consumption has consistently been associated with decreased risk of a number of aerodigestive tract cancers, including esophageal cancer. In an animal model study, scientists administered Lyophilized ( freeze dried) Black Raspberries to rats with esophageal cancer. They concluded, at the end of 35 weeks, that Lyophilized ( freeze dried) Black Raspberries inhibited events associated with both the initiation an promotion/progression stages of carcinogenesis.
3) More fruits
Researchers examined the association of food group intakes, and the risk of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) in a hospital-based case-control study in Iran. It was found that a protective independent effect was observed for the highest tertile of total fruit consumption . Within the group of fruits, a significant inverse association was observed for bananas and kiwis. The risk of SCC decreased monotonically with increasing intake frequency of oranges.
Other non- invasive natural approaches reported to prevent a esophageal cancer diagnosis, such as: the consumption of strawberries and the moderate consumption of wine. It is important to note that the use of a famous osteoporosis medication, called fosamax, has been linked to esophageal cancer diagnosis.
