Study reports red meat to bowel cancer

Study reports red meat to bowel cancer

Several studies have already shown that eating too much red meat can be harmful to health. Now it has been pointed out as a risk factor for bowel cancer. This is revealed by a review of six scientific studies that will be presented at the American Cancer Society congress in the United States under the leadership of Alexandra Paola Zandonai, a specialist in oncology nursing at the University of São Paulo (USP). The study also found that anyone who consumes beef or pork daily in any amount may be 35 percent more likely to develop large bowel cancer. When the consumption is of sausages (sausage, salami, ham, sausage, turkey breast), that number rises to 49%. A solution pointed out by Alexandra Zandonai to alleviate the problem is to replace red meat with the white - fish and chicken.

Prevention of bowel cancer asks for tests

Endocrinologist Alessandra Rascovski explains that bowel cancer, like all other , is favored in its incidence by age factor. Those who live a long time probably will have cancer because certain abnormalities in cell division become more frequent, which favors the onset of the malignant tumor. In addition, the older you are, the greater the person's exposure to environmental risk factors. From the age of 40 and every subsequent decade, the risk of this type of cancer doubles. If you have first- and second-degree relatives who died of the disease after turning 40, schedule your colonoscopy!

When to perform the colonoscopy?

A colonoscopy is an examination that detects cancer early, when it already exists, and also prevents it, as it allows the identification and removal of the polyp before it becomes a malignant tumor. Those who have cases of the disease in first-degree relatives should start taking this exam at age 40. Who does not have, at age 50, at the age of 60

Fast food, dyes, excessive alcohol and cigarettes are factors that promote bowel cancer. So it would be great if all people could have a preventive colonoscopy at age 50. However, those who have some symptom have no choice.


Disc herniation can cause sexual dysfunction

Disc herniation can cause sexual dysfunction

The relationship between back pain and a sexual life has always been a little discussed. A study, published last year in J Neurosurg: Spine, focused on the interference of the herniated disc in people's quality of sexual life. The results were interesting. The study analyzed 43 people with a mean age of 41 years, between men and women, with the objective of evaluating the sexual activities of the herniated disc before and after undergoing surgery.
