Yes, you can live, eating meat alone, staying for the time being apparently healthy and strong, as illustrated by some of the northern peoples.
But one thing - to survive, and the other - live long. It is generally recognized that an excess of animal food in negative impacts on health. Prematurely wear out the internal organs, accumulate genetic errors, the body is full slag (which in the citizen, of course, can not burn as efficiently and output, as the Nenets, or Eskimo, hard-working), and the body is aging rapidly, burdened with numerous diseases. However, the nation, feeding mainly on meat, Read more [...]
I finally found the right allegory for the most elegant presentation of views on the preparation of survival by nychek, caches and hiding in the villages, away from the brutal mob.
Andso, imagine the following scene. Many people die from cancer. In fact, die from it a lot more people than street crime, local wars and neschyasnyh cases combined. Here, for example, in Russia die from cancer every year 285,000 people. For comparison, from injuries and illness, earned in production in Russia is killed only 190,000 people, and those in the majority Read more [...]
There are people who are convinced that smoking a few cigarettes a day is not harmful, and even useful, and in general, they say, - rumors about the dangers of tobacco are greatly exaggerated physicians.
- You, Doctor, do not smoke - tells me one of those supporters of smoking. - We go to work on the same street, inhaling so much smoke from passing cars, my cigarettes are not pale in comparison to this health hazard.
Of course, many are known carcinogens, into the air with the dust from the asphalt, with car exhaust fumes and smoke emissions of the factory and the factory chimneys. And yet, Read more [...]
The role of animal parasites in causing cancer. Some clinical observations force us to seek the relationship between the occurrence of tumors and the presence of human and animal tissues of certain parasites. These include cancer of the bladder, occurs relatively frequently in the defeat of the UAR bilharzia (schistosomiasis see). There is a range of information on the relative frequency of cancer of the liver and biliary tract infections in people infected with opisthorchiasis (see). Known and the experimental observations of some authors who believe that the parasites can cause development Read more [...]
The term "epidemiology" in relation to tumors and other non-communicable diseases, such as atherosclerosis, hypertension, etc., has been applied recently. At the same time understand the epidemiology not in the sense of studying epidemics of infectious diseases, and in the original sense of the word (Greek epidemia - the spread of diseases, from epi - on and demos - country, people), that is, as the study of common diseases among the population. The task of epidemiology, pathology, or geographical tumors is a comparative study of their distribution in different parts of the country Read more [...]
Estiomen (French esthiomene; from Greek. Esthiomenos - corroded; synonym ulcus rodens vulvae) - a chronic ulcer defeat vulva.
Characterized by a long progressive compaction, ulceration and scarring vagina (in the lower one-third) and external genital organs, which leads to elephantiasis of the clitoris, small and large labia. Estiomen usually occurs within a few years after the start of the main disease develops slowly and in some cases combined with a defeat rectum and perineum, forming a so-called genitoanorektalny syndrome. Anorectal defeat begins with inflammatory mucosal changes rectum Read more [...]
New possibilities of surgical treatment of tumors of the bronchi are opened in connection with the development of plastic surgery in the tracheobronchial tree. Summary of the operations - circular resection of bronchus followed mezhbronhialnym end anastomosis in end. Resection bronchial tubes and plastic allow the most economical operation with preservation of valuable functional lung parenchyma, and if necessary - advanced operations on the organs of respiration.
Adenoma of the large bronchi, until recently, been accepted radical surgery lobectomy and even Pneumonectomy. Now these operations Read more [...]
A certain number of agents belonging to the different classes of chemical compounds that can cause cancer and other malignant and benign tumors (see carcinogens).
Blastomogenic substances under the experimental conditions can be administered to animals in different ways. The most accepted introduction Under the skin, the mouth, lubrication of the skin. Perhaps the introduction of intratracheal, intravenous and directly into the tissue of various organs. Blastomogenic substances in experiments administered dissolved in vegetable oils, animal fats, and for lubrication of the skin - in benzene, Read more [...]
Fluorouracil (Phthoruracilum; List A) - an antitumor agent. Apply with stomach cancer, colon cancer, tumors of the pancreas, lung and breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Fluorouracil is administered intravenously in a day, a single dose 0.75-1 g (15 mg per 1 kg of patient weight), dose of treatment was 3.5-5 Possible side effects: diarrhea, stomatitis, thrombocytopenia, leucopenia, rarely jaundice. Fluorouracil contraindicated in cachexia, severe disturbance of liver and kidney function, leukopenia (less than 4,000 white blood cells in 1 mm3 of blood) and thrombocytopenia (platelet count less than Read more [...]
Significant antitumor activity was shown as gossypol cottonseed, phenolic active ingredients of marijuana drug A-9-THC and its analogs. Cannabinoids also possess antiemetic effects, which also finds its use in treatment of cancer patients. Drug antozim of beetroot juice speeds recovery of cancer patients after surgery and radiation treatment.
Undoubtedly the prospect of clinical application in the treatment of precancerous lesions and cancer of the skin and mucous membranes has also vitamin A, and in particular its synthetic derivatives - retinoids. Vitamin A is essential for normal functioning Read more [...]
Experiments have shown that many simple and condensed phenols are more or less pronounced kokantserogennym action. Kokantserogennym powerful action the phenolic fraction of tobacco smoke. If we consider that as part of the smoke contains carcinogens and classic type of benzo (a) pyrene, it is easy to imagine that this combination contributes to the development of lung cancer, respiratory tract, oral cavity and esophagus, and bladder (urine metabolites of carcinogens and are removed kokantserogenov, Validating in the body). Phenolic kokantserogeny as tobacco smoke carcinogens, activate hydroxylase Read more [...]
Patient reader, who defeated the previous few pages under "Phenols of malignant disease" can legitimately ask: where are phenols? What is their role in these complex and still not fully clarified processes?
First, the phenolic compounds arise from hydroxylation of polycyclic (including carcinogenic) of hydrocarbons and as such are neutralized metabolic products, the ones that should be considered as inactive metabolites. But the role of phenols is not limited to this effect.
Secondly, among the phenolic compounds are substances - hydroxylase inducers, increasing its activity (for example, Read more [...]
It is also assumed that the effectiveness of warfarin in the treatment of cancer is caused not only anticoagulant effect, but also a direct effect on tumor: Inhibition of cell divisions in it and improve its blood supply, oxygen delivery. Well-oxygenated tumor cells more sensitive to radiation treatment and chemotherapy. Furthermore, warfarin enhances the antitumor action 5-FU and other chemotherapeutic agents, slowing their inactivation and removal, as well as synchronizing tumor cells in the stages S and G1 cell cycle, when they are particularly sensitive to 5-fluorouracil. Thus, the therapeutic Read more [...]
Oksikumarina synthetic derivatives, antibiotic kumermitsin, some have estrogenic activity patented isoflavone derivatives as a means of stimulating growth and weight gain of livestock and poultry, fattened for meat. The addition of these products in the amount of 1-50 grams per ton of feed significantly increases the efficiency of its use. However, in recent years there have been concerns that these substances are widely used in some western countries, are dangerous in the sense of increasing the frequency of tumors in people who consume meat with residues of these substances.
The role of phenolic Read more [...]
The problem of cancer, malignant transformation of cells - one of the most complex and pressing problems of modern medicine. There are many different points of view on the nature of cancer, its causes and conditions. Coverage of this issue at least in general terms, beyond the scope of this book. But as soon as there are phenolic compounds of substances that contribute to cancer development and treatment of anti-cancer agents, touch on this issue only to the extent that is necessary for the understanding of the action of phenols.
The crucial difference of tumor cells from normal cells of the Read more [...]
Diagnosis in most cases is not difficult. The patients' age, the typical history, slow sluggish progress of the disease, feeling his finger through the rectum painless swelling uniformly elastic consistency with a smooth surface makes it easy to diagnose. By cystography with oxygen in a direct and polubokovoy projection image can be jutting into bubble adenoma, which is an objective and documented diagnosis (Fig. 119, see inset between pp. 240-241).
Cystoscopy lets you see jutting out into the exit area of the bubble nodes adenomas, hemispherical shape, covered with intact mucosa.
Adenoma Read more [...]
Gipernefroidny cancer (Synonyms - clear-cell carcinoma, a tumor Gravitsa) develops from epithelial cells of the renal parenchyma. Tumors are of different sizes, round or nodular form in the early stages are surrounded by a thin fibrous capsule, which separates them from the healthy part of the kidney. They are located in different parts of the kidney, pushing and squeezing the renal parenchyma. Gradually growing, cancerous tumor can reach the size of an adult's head. Consistency gipernefroidnogo cancer uneven: it is dense, it is soft, some necrotic areas may be calcification. On a section Read more [...]
Tuberculosis esophagus is extremely rare. Occurs as a complication of pulmonary tuberculosis or infection due to the transition from the tracheal or peribronchial lymph nodes. Most often affects the bifurcation, at least the lower third of the esophagus. Described in two forms: 1) surface or deeper ulcers insignificant value, oval, thin, jagged edges and the bottom, covered with pale granulations, 2) sclerosing infiltrates delimited or diffuse nature, sealing the wall of the esophagus and narrowing the lumen (sometimes pretend cancer).
Symptoms depend on the form of the process. In gastric Read more [...]
