Doctors refuted the most popular myths about cancer

(ORDO NEWS) — Today, cancer is still a disease that has not been fully understood. Too many questions about the origin of oncology remain unanswered.

Doctors say that there are certain factors that can increase the risk of developing the disease.

They include heredity, bad habits, bad ecology and others. However, there are a huge number of myths about oncology that people continue to believe.

Experts have revealed that some of the common stories about cancer are myths.

Breast cancer is caused by deodorants

There is no evidence that deodorants can provoke the development of breast cancer. Some of the conducted studies have shown that certain substances dangerous to health may be present in hygiene products.

These include parabens and aluminum. Substances are absorbed through the skin or can enter the body through cuts, scratches and other wounds.

At the same time, scientists have not been able to prove experimentally that this has any effect on increasing the risk of developing oncology.

Heating food in a microwave oven in a plastic container

Plastic dishes marked as microwave safe really do not pose any threat to human health. It is better not to use those plastic containers that are not intended for heating food in them.

The reason for this is that such plastic can melt or, when heated, will emit dangerous substances that will get into food.

Sugar accelerates the development of oncology

There are no studies to support this. Scientists need to further study the question of how oncology and the presence of sugar in the human diet are related to each other.

It is worth paying attention to the fact that absolutely all cells of the human body depend on sugar, which acts as a source of energy.

Cancer cells were no exception. At the same time, it is necessary to understand that glucose cannot provoke the appearance of cancer.

Oncology is contagious

People who have cancer should not be shunned. This disease is not transmitted, so it is possible to communicate with a sick person and contact him.

This is very important for a cancer patient, because he needs the support of others in this difficult period of his life.
