Most cancers are caused by bad luck not genes or lifestyle, say scientists – Telegraph

Most cancers are caused by bad luck not genes or lifestyle, say scientists – Telegraph.

interesting finding about cancer. seems it is part of nature, the more times a cell divides, the more the chance of errors in duplication and getting cancerous changes. 1/3 due to lifestyles and environment , 2/3 of cancers are random. but u can see how it is random because even getting cancerous cells does not mean u will die of it, because the body has other defense mechanisms that can detect these cells and destroy them . it is the coming together of failures in all these safeguards and defenses that will allow cancer to develop and even then it might be so slow that u die of other things. makes u see how random it all is, doesn’t it?

seems to me just natures way of killing us. a doctor said cancer is the best way to die, so maybe it is how nature kills off people, as we dont have many natural enemies. viruses and bacteria are our most serious enemies, that can kill us , but even then our own natural immunity plus our clever brains that invents medicines and vaccines have made them less killers than in the past. so there is only cancer left.  i bet aging is a factor, as we grow older our cells dont divide so good anymore and more errors comes in. that is why if u live long enough and escape heart and lung diseases or fatal accidents, u will get cancer even if u follow the lifestyle book and live a blameless life.

    I read the article too.I agree that people in generations past died of other stuff before were old enough to get the cancers. Recently finished 43 radiations for prostate cancer. Was I just unlucky or at 65 was it my time for it? Stats declare that 3 out of 10 men get prostate cancer but I think it is much much higher. Perhaps the stat 3 of 10 is based on % die from it but that would exclude men who have it but die of something else so are not part of prostate cancer statistical group.

    I think diet does elevate the presence of colon cancer. Red meat takes longer to digest and is kept in the bowels a bit longer than other food. It is toxic. The colon/intestines are designed to hold levels of toxicity but extended retention of toxins(years and years of red meat diet) weaken the cells making them less immune to cancer.

    Drastically eliminating animal fats from diet( sausage, bacon, pepperoni, sandwich meats) diminish possibilities of coronary artery disease as well. However, even people who follow such diet plan get it too as it is part of aging in that aortic network calcifies(atherosclerosis-hardening of the arteries) occurs naturally with age but certainly hastened by animal fat rich diet.

      hi carl, i am wondering if being more regular in bowel movement, (shitting often!!) is better than dieting to reduce the chances of colon cancer.then any toxins gets moved rapidly down the colon. that means eating more roughage. oats comes to mind, as i find is great for roughage. it is always a good thing to have more fibre in the diet.
      as for prostate cancer, i googled it and it says in uk 1 in 8 will have prostate cancer, risks higher for older men, black men, and those with history of cancer in family. so in usa it is 3 in 10. i wonder why it is higher in usa? or is it because there are more blacks in usa?

        I suppose there are variables in the variables of any clinical research. I understand that periodic colon cleansing is used as well as fasting.

    I read this in our Straits Times today too. I would agree that it can be bad luck as my friend’s mum does not drink nor smoke, is a school teacher but is dying from lung cancer. Some people have stage 3 cancer but live heartily too. Fate & destiny I think as decided by the heavens I guess.
