Human Papillomavirus or HPV Infection (HPV4)

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
HPV4 also known as Human Papillomavirus or HPV Infection is a known sexually transmitted disease that causes women’s cervical cancer. The skin along the genital area can be infected with this condition. Other than the rare occurrence of genital warts, some patients do not show any symptoms until the disease developed into a more chronic type or worst, cancer in the cervix of women. Irritability and discomfort in the sex organ are observed by those who contracted the disease. Babies however can be infected by their mothers after labor that can damage the child’s airways and lungs.

As a sexually transmitted disease it is obviously contracted while having sex. Although there are more than a hundred kinds of human papillomaviruses, only forty can be transferred from one human being to another. HPV Vaccine must not be missed by people who are prone to the disease. Lifestyle dictates the vulnerability of a person.

Symptoms can be cleared out in time just by treating the symptoms – probably within two years from contracting the condition. However, if cell changes have been diagnosed, Cryotherapy, Conization or Electrosurgical Excision Procedure may be undertaken based on the specialist’s recommendation to get rid of abnormal cells that might be cancerous by nature!

Cell Sites cannot Cause Cancer

welcome
By: Elena Grace Flores
There have been speculations that cell sites or cell phone towers cause cancer due to radiation – but this is not true. Simply because RF frequency of these sites are too low compared to x-rays. The distance from the tower to the ground cannot also penetrate even the slightest cell in the body. Read this report from the American Cancer Society:

American Cancer Society – Latest on Cell Phone Towers

By: American Cancer Society

Some people have expressed concern that living, working, or going to school near a cell phone tower might increase the risk of cancer or other health problems. At this time, there is very little evidence to support this idea. In theory, there are some important points that would argue against cellular phone towers being able to cause cancer.  http://www.emfexplained.info/?ID=25821


When it comes to radiation, cell sites even have lesser effect compared to the cell phone near your ears. If cell phone towers really do cause cancer, then all mobile phone users are already with cancer which is far from reality. Why check what you eat – to prevent yourself from having one!

Valproic acid or VPA medicated drugs for regulating emotions can actually prevent cancer in the head and neck according to the recent research findings during the joint experiment between Emory University and Veterans Medical Center in Atlanta according to Dr. Johann Christoph Brandes, the leader of the team based on Honor Whiteman’s article.

The drug’s ability to block HATs or Histone Acetyl Transferases- also noted as the enzymes for controlling genetic expressions through DNA structure alteration can prevent the formation of various types of cancer during the early period. The HAT blockage can possibly avoid the development of cancers not just in the neck and head but also in the prostate, bladder and lungs.

The fact that VPA can be an anti-cancer agent is still under thorough studies. However it has been noted that people who were treated with this drug for bipolar, PSD, seizures and migraine for at least 3 years were less likely to contract the above mentioned types of cancer. The optimal dosage for cancer cure is yet to be determined depending on its stage – but the researchers are close to conclude that head and neck cancer upon detecting malignant lesions can positively be prevented!

Air pollution is rampant all over the world especially in developing countries where people strive hard to excel in their industry for money. It may be disturbing to know this report from CNN that polluted air is indeed cancerous. Think about it! Major steps must be done by the government to at least help minimize air pollution. We can’t just stop breathing every now and then – to lessen our intake of these dangerous gasses. There must be something we can do but before that, read this report:

Air pollution causes cancer, world health authority says

By:  Ben Brumfield

(CNN) — The air many of us breathe poses serious health risks, the World Health Organization says. On Thursday, it added cancer to the list.

Air pollution is a now officially a carcinogen, and there are no caveats about the new classification..http://www.cnn.com.ph/2013/10/17/health/geneva-air-pollution-carcinogenic-who/index.html?hpt=he_c1#cnn-disqus-area

 



Sometimes, the air pollution saga becomes controversial – with some people saying that the cancer scare is just a propaganda by greedy business manipulators to be able to sell their health products for example. Others say that carbon dioxide emissions from substandard fuels are really not that bad but again, we are allegedly being brain washed by the massive advertising campaigns of improved gasoline giant traders. It may be true that money is the motivator of all these – but think again. We know for a fact that bad air is unhealthy ever since time immemorial. So, the best thing that we can do is to start conserving energy from our very own home and contribute in cleaning up the air by living as basic as we can
