There are many types of cancer and the first treatment prescribed by doctors is chemotherapy. However, a controversy exists around this treatment, which according to some scientists, could cause the spread of cancer throughout the body and become, therefore fatal.

According to the report of the Cancer Research Center (IARC), cancer is linked to several factors:
  • Smoking
  • The alcohol
  • Poor diet (lack of fruits and vegetables)
  • The lack of physical activity
  • obesity
  • Solar radiation (UV)
  • Pollution

The Daiymail has published an article that scientists at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York have shown that chemotherapy is only a short-term solution and remains dangerous or even deadly. According to this study, chemotherapeutic treatment would shrink the tumor but open the way for the spread of other cancer cells into the bloodstream. As a result, the cancer becomes impossible to treat because once it is diffused to other organs, it passes to stage 4.

According to Dr. George Karagiannis, lead author of this study, the published results should not discourage patients from using chemotherapy. However, it would be wiser to closely monitor the growth of cancer cells in patients undergoing chemotherapy. This preventive measure would consist of taking tumor tissue, impregnated with a few doses of preoperative chemotherapy, and checking if marker scores increase. If this is the case, a stop of the chemo is obligatory to replace it, first, by a surgery, followed by a postoperative chemo.

The painful side effects of chemotherapy

Treatment with chemotherapy is given either as a pill or an intravenous infusion. Thus this treatment is diffused through the bloodstream and spreads throughout the body.

Tamoxifen, the generic name of Nolvadex, is the oldest and most prescribed pill for women with breast cancer. It has the advantage of reducing by 50% the risk of recurrence of the tumor and the appearance of a new cancer. However, its side effects are painful and painful, including vaginal bleeding, chest pain, shortness of breath, difficulty speaking, vision problems, bone pain, memory loss, not to mention of the depression that it generates. The latter is triggered automatically in people with cancer, is aggravated after taking this drug.

Thus, this treatment activates healthy cells to stimulate tumor growth. In theory, chemo is used to eradicate cancer cells by introducing a toxic dose of the drug into the body. However this dose can be fatal. If a lower dose is administered, this could lead to two negative effects, namely, rapid application and survival of some cancer cells that can resist chemo and spread to other organs via the lymph nodes. This is the secondary cancer also called metastatic.

This stage of the tumor becomes difficult to treat because of its gravity and its diffusion in delicate areas of the body, dangerous to operate. According to Professor Karagiannis, other trials are being studied to alleviate this problem.

What are the other alternative ways to fight cancer

According to Fred Hutch's researchers, there is an opportunity to reduce breast cancer mortality by using other methods to detect the presence of the tumor and reduce its growth in the body. The Seattle-based SPORE Breast Cancer Consortium has been assisting researchers at Hutch to further their research on the benefits of immunotherapy for cancer therapy, alongside surgery and radiation therapy.

Immunotherapy aims to stimulate the immune system to strengthen it and make it better able to defend the body of pathogenic microorganisms or tumor cells.
  • Radiotherapy can kill tumors by irradiating them and modifying the genetic makeup of their cells to prevent them from developing.

Let's not forget that maintaining healthy health requires a healthy lifestyle. It would be advisable to practice regular physical activity, associated with a diet rich in fruits and vegetables and to maximize its immune system without forgetting to consume foods rich in antioxidants that help fight against free radicals, causes of occurrence of serious diseases.
