Do You Have A Cancer Personality?

Do You Have A Cancer Personality?

Cancer cells are always present in our bodies. All it needs is a stimuli to trigger vicious growth. Cancer cells are actually healthy cells that “go haywire” under certain conditions. This could be caused by a physical stimuli like the exposure to certain foods or substances. Or it could be emotional one. When almost all of the mind’s resources is diverted to coping with the emotional onslaught, it let’s up it vigilance in fighting or controlling cellular damage. If the mind provides scant resources to the body’s defense mechanism i.e. the immune system, disease will have a free reign to take over the body.

Studies have shown that People with the following Personality Traits or Background have a greater Risk of Cancer:

  • Suffers traumatic events like personal loss such as a death or a divorce, loss of a job or money, moving to another location etc;
  • Harbors long-suppressed toxic emotions such as anger, resentment and/or hostility. Typically the cancer-susceptible individual internalizes such emotions and has great difficulty expressing them;
  • Exhibits an obsessive tendency toward carrying other people’s burdens or trying to please or getting others’ approval;
  • Type A Personality i.e. one who reacts adversely to stress or gets easily upset, often being unable to cope with the stress. Blow off steam if you must, but don’t carry it around with you;
  • Inability to resolve deep-seated emotional problems and conflicts, usually arising in childhood, often even being unaware of their presence.
  • Unable to “move on” i.e. finding closure for long standing problems or unable to turn to grieve to relief themselves from their emotional problems;
  • Feel that they have lost control of their lives, feel helpless and are unable to cope with daily living, or have low self-worth;
  • Don’t have interesting things to look forward to each day;

These feelings or traits are often calls for help, warning signs, telling you to slow down and take stock of your emotional situation.

What you can do if you have a Cancer Personality:

  • Workout in the gym;
  • Don’t over-drink to cope with stress. Hiding your fears and grief in drugs, alcohol, sweet or fat foods will not relieve your situation, but will damage your body;
  • Walking or jogging;
  • Finding a friend you can confide in;
  • Hire a therapist who will listen to you;
  • Get an interesting hobby to take you mind off your own troubles;
  • Look at the brighter side of life;
  • Get a pet;
  • Do Charity or Community work like volunteer helping the sick, elderly, poor or the helpless;
  • Start an activity that you have always wanted to do but have put off;
  • Stay Positive like Randy Pausch. Be Yourself – just kick out the bad stuff.
  • Most importantly, take Anti-Oxidants

Heart Attack Prediction Tool

Heart Attack Prediction Tool

Find out if you are likely to suffer a serious heart attack which also entails a high risk of death* within the next 10 years with this heart attack prediction tool.

This Heart Attack assessment tool uses historical data of heart attack patients from the Framingham Heart Study. The heart attack perdiction tool is designed to estimate the risk in adults aged 20 years and older who do not have heart disease or diabetes.

Use the link below to assess the 10 Year Heart Attack Risk Calculator. The Risk Calculator Tool will ask you the following questions and provide an assessment of your risk to heart attacks within the next 10 years:

  • Your Age
  • Your Gender
  • Your Total Cholesterol Count
  • Your HDL Cholesterol Count
  • If You Are A Smoker
  • Your Systolic Blood Pressure
  • Whether You Are Doing Anything To Reduce Your High Blood Pressure

* Hard coronary heart disease (HCHD) i.e. myocardial infarction or coronary death.

Waist-Hip Ratio:

The Waist-Hip Ratio is another way of assessing the risk of heart attacks and diabetes. It is more accurate than the traditional BMI Index.

To calculate the Waist-Hip Ratio, measure the ratio of your waist circumference (the narrowest point on your abdomen ie at your navel) and your hip circumference (the widest point ie at your buttocks).

To find your Waist-Hip Ratio, divide the size of your waist by your hip size.

A ratio greater than 1.0 for a man (in other words your waist is bigger than your hips) or 0.8 for a woman suggests a higher risk of a heart attack and therefore you urgently need to reduce your weight and increase your levels of exercise.

If you are “apple” shaped (you carry extra weight in your stomach) it is a predictor that you are highly likely to suffer from a heart attack than if you are “pear” shaped (you have excess weight around your hips)

Furthermore, a recent study of 27,000 people showed that those who were obese as judged by the waist-to-hip ratio had substantially more heart attacks than those who were obese according to their BMI.

The bellweather BMI ratio is not considered accurate now as it fails to take into account muscle density and other relevant factors.

Mobile phones: Health Risk

Mobile phones: Health Risk

Mobile phones could represent a public health risk akin to asbestos or smoking, according to a study by neurosurgeon Dr Vini G Khurana, a Mayo Clinic-trained neurosurgeon with an advanced neurosurgery Fellowship in Cerebrovascular and Complex Tumor Surgery from the Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix, Arizona, and a fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons.

It suggests there is growing evidence linking excessive long-term use of mobile phones and certain health risks like brain tumors – reigniting a long-running debate about the safety of the technology. “There is a growing and statistically significant body of evidence reporting that brain tumors such as vestibular schwannoma (acoustic neuroma) and astrocytoma are associated with ‘heavy’ and ‘prolonged’ mobile phone use, particularly on the same side as the ‘preferred ear’ for telephony…

Children’s use of mobile phones carries a high health risk, (because of their thinner, undeveloped skulls) he claims, suggesting kids’ use of mobiles should be to emergency situations only.

Mobile phone radiation is a possible cancer risk, warns World Health Organisation (WHO) – 2011

Researchers in Sweden have found that just two minutes’ exposure to energy waves from a handset can disable a defense mechanism in the body designed to prevent harmful proteins and toxins in the blood from entering the brain.

In what is the latest in a series of mobile phone health scares, once the proteins enter brain tissue there is a higher risk of brain and nerve diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis developing.

RADIATION from cellphones is too weak to heat biological tissue or break chemical bonds in cells, but the radio waves they emit may still affect cell behavior.

“Our study suggests that it is possible that mobile phone radiation alters the expression of some proteins in living humans,” says Dariusz Leszczynski at the Finnish Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority, in Helsinki.

.
Right now the world is in the state of denial as far as mobile phones’ health risks are concerned. Everyone does not want to give up the use of their mobile phones because it is such an all too convenient medium of communication. This will change when more statistics proving links between mobile phone usage and cell /brain damage are released in the years to come. It seems like an inexpensive way to communicate until you add up the future health costs!.

Don’t wait till there is a health problem before cutting back on mobile phone use. Use a wired headset (instead of a blue tooth wireless device) and cut calls and duration of calls to a minimum. Asking callers to sms their messages or use other forms of communications will also increase productivity. Think twice before making that next call on your mobile phone. Don’t be a slave and victim of your mobile phone.
