Anti-cancer exersize

Kanseri engelleyen egzersiz

According to a study in UK, walking is good for preventing colon and breast cancers. British researchers said that walking exersize may prevent upto 10 thousands of colon and breast cancers in UK.
Health experts say that physical activities may lower the cancer risk by arranging hormone levels in the body. It´s reported that 8% of the cancer cases in Europe are linked to overweight and obesity.

I´m amazed at how many kinds of cancers there exist. I have a friend who just died of brain cancer, but it was actually lung cancer that metastasized to her brain....so the lung cancer that killed her was in her brain, not her lungs....I wonder is it is harder to die of untreated cancer, or treated? IOW, some of the treatments look really really painful. ...and expensive.

That´s what I exectly think. I am considering to reject the treatment if it happens to me. I lost my father because of the cancer 2 years ago and until then it was a long painful period for all of us.  IOW, some of the treatments look really really painful. ...and expensive.

I´m sorry for your loss and suffering si++

We each have to make that decision on our own. It´s a good idea to make your choice known, preferably in writing. It is actually very complicated in the US. Here it´s called an advanced directive. We also have Do Not Resuscitate documents. I have seen people with DNRs subjected to hideous "heroics" because the persons around them ignored the orders and called EMS.

My friend who just passed away did not have an advanced directive, even though I remember talking with her about it. She just never really got around to it. It made things hard for her husband, as she was unable to sign anything, or make any decisions,  he was in a terrible situation.

Most people put things off, or don´t check all the boxes. Few seem to want to come to terms with their own mortality, and then, we are actually discouraged from facing the inevitable.

The cancer thing is ugly. I haven´t seen any actual cures with advanced cancer,  just prolonging things, so it seems to me. I have seen people (particularly children) cured who had less advanced cancer (by cured I mean they have lived over 5 years of a good healthy life).  I lost 2 aunts, 3 uncles and a cousin to cancer, as well as friends, so I´ve seen it up close and personal.

I wonder if Elisabeth knows about these things.

On a more cheerful note, we have to be careful with our lives to make healthy choices and be proactive in taking care of ourselves....our loved ones...our universe.

I think it´s easier to make that choice for yourself than it is to make it for your children. I have informed everyone who might be in position to decide for me that I do not wish to be resuscitated or be dependent on life-supporting machines. With advanced cancer, I think I´d take just loads of morfine and that´s about it. However, if I were to make that call for my son, I don´t think I´d give up on him that easily. Reason and hope are two different things you know.

We hear that sometimes people manage to cure their cancer with positive thinking.

I had once read a book about people managing it (Quantum healing by Deepak Chopra). It was a good read for me. I return to it time to time for re-reading.
