1. Plastic utensils are not good for your health
Plastics contain phthalates. These are fabrics that are added to plastics to increase their flexibility, durability and transparency. Many plastic household items, such as food containers, as well as toys, detergents, and personal care products contain elements of phthalates.
Snake bite takes center stage worldwide
Studies now show an association between phthalate exposure and development of many chronic diseases such as asthma, breast cancer, attention deficit, hyperactivity disorder, type 2 diabetes, neurodevelopmental disorders, low IQ, altered reproductive development and autism spectrum jam.
. 2 Cancer and your TIP
Three glasses of wine cut daily four months from the lifespan of a man, but 16 months for the woman. In addition, alcohol increases the likelihood of a woman suffering from breast cancer
3. KEEP THE TELEPHONE AWAY WHEN SLEEPING
American health officials have warned the public that sleeping by phone within reach of a person precludes radiation and health risks.
While the link between cell phone radiation emissions and cancer is not yet clear, they can not be completely ignored. Studies also show that men who keep their cell phones near their crotches tend to have weaker sperm.
. 4 CABBAGES AND KALE, WONDER FOOD FOR BREAST CANCER PATIENTS
Cabbages, kales, collard greens, Brussels sprouts and broccoli have been found to reduce side effects of breast cancer treatment in women. Soya products such as soymilk, tofu and edamame are also effective.
In the study published in Breast Cancer Research and Treatment, higher intake of cruciferous vegetables and soy foods were associated with less fatigue, fewer hot flashes and night sweats. The treatment side effects persist months or years after treatment and the consumption of these foods makes the patient feel better.
. 5 You can test for cervical cancer at home
One of the biggest problems curbing cervical cancer has been getting women to make Pap smears so they can be detected early. For this reason, a kit has been developed to allow women to do it themselves at home and get the samples.
This is already in the US and Kenya labs are in the process of making it locally available. Once the woman has received the sample, she can even send it by mail or courier.
Statistics show that cervical cancer is the second most common cancer in women in Nairobi and most often in the rest of the country. It can be treated if it is detected early, and once the home kits are available, it will be diagnosed much earlier in more women, thereby reducing the mortality rate of cervical cancer in Kenya.

During the roasting process, the fat from the meat drips onto the burning charcoal and produces smoke that contains carcinogenic chemicals; polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and heterocyclic amines, chemicals known to increase the risk of colon and rectal carcinomas.
. 7 THE TOP AGE FOR CHILD CANCER
While adult cancers are caused by lifestyle-related causes, childhood cancer is not.
Children are not born with cancer. Dr. However, William Macharia, a leading Nairobi onediologist, explains that something could go wrong with cell division and replication (cell replication) after conception. Called a genetic accident, it becomes like a time bomb and can be triggered in the future by anything that leads to cancer. "It's like a landmine," he says. "They do not even know it exists until someone steps on it and it explodes."
A trigger could be a viral infection or anything that affects the child's health. The highest age for childhood cancer is between three and seven years, says. This is not enough time for anything from the environment to cause cancer as it takes about 20 to 30 years to develop cancer.
What can a parent do? Feel the child everywhere and watch for swelling or abnormalities. "Since there is no cancer screening for children, one parent should be very vigilant," he says.
. 1 The cancer of the eye can be harvested early by firing a torch into your child's eye. "If you see a reflection of the black part of the eye (like the eyes of a cat), see a doctor right away," he advises.
. 2 Expectant mothers should also avoid radiation as they could lead to genetic accidents.
. 3 Children with genetic abnormalities are at higher risk. Children with Down syndrome are at high risk for leukemia.
