World cancer day: Cancer can be prevented

Word and the Mass, one way is to take extra effort to do so. You must listen, reflect on the readings, and apply God’s message in your own Cancer Day.

The observance was initiated by the International Union Against Cancer in 2005 in response to the Charter of Paris in 2000. World Cancer Day was first observed on February 4, 2006.

Cancer was derived from the species crab of the Latin text which means the “unseen hidden underground enemy.” It causes abnormal and uncontrolled multiplication of cells which does not show any pain at its earliest stage.

Although the causes of cancer are unknown, there are behaviors which increase the risk of cancer. Some of them are lack of exercise, being overweight or obese, improper eating habits, exposure to carcinogens, radiation, certain viruses like the papilloma virus, and smoking or alcohol addiction. The early signs of cancer include lesions that prolong to heal, lumps, consistent indigestion, abnormal bleeding and chronic hoarseness.

Cancer is the leading cause of death all over the world without intervention.

Between 2005 and 2015, the World Health Organization estimated that 84 million people will die due to cancer. So it is important that the public are educated on ways to detect symptoms of cancer and to know the proper screening techniques in order to prevent cancer.

This year’s theme, “Cancer can be prevented too,” emphasizes simple measures to prevent cancer such as following a healthy diet and regular exercise, limiting intake of alcohol, avoiding tobacco use, and protecting oneself against cancer-causing infections.

It also stressed that healthy lifestyle is one of the keys in winning over this life-threatening disease.

Let us join the world in observing World Cancer Day. Let us also hope that the observance of World Cancer Day encourages policy makers all over the world to make cancer a political priority and brings new life to cancer survivors.
