Cancer represents one of the most serious problems for contemporary societies as it involves not only the health sector, but has profound psychological, emotional and social repercussions. In light of the complexity of the phenomenon, this volume does not want to provide certain answers but rather to ask questions that help to tackle cancer from points of view now neglected by traditional medicine.
It is now well known that cancer is spreading fast on our planet, especially in the West. The fear of having to face the disease very often generates discomfort and pain. Even conventional medicine has not yet been able to find the right cure for cancer that can completely eradicate this disease that afflicts many people regardless of age and gender. However, it is possible to resort to natural remedies which apparently may have good results for the treatment of cancer.

Can a disease like Cancer cured Naturally?
Those who suffer from this disease want in every way to do what is possible to live. Many resort to alternative natural cancer cures, such as acupuncture, massages, supplements, herbal products, etc. But before proceeding with the reading of the article it is necessary to make a premise to all those who are cancer patients: it is essential not to replace conventional therapies with alternative ones. It is true that some natural cures are carving out a good position in the area of cancer treatment.
But they should not be understood as 100% healing methods, but as approaches aimed at improving the patient’s psychophysical well-being. Therefore, if natural cures are to be used, patients should first seek medical attention. Also, when evaluating alternative therapies, great attention must be paid to the miraculous promises that are given. That said, cancer occurs when diseased cells begin invading adjacent tissues through the lymphatic system and blood, spreading throughout the body.
Coffee and cancer: Drinking lots of coffee is not linked to cancer risk
Drinking coffee carries neither risks nor benefits. “The genetic data gives us a much firmer indicator as to whether or not coffee consumption has an impact on cancer risk. The use of a genetic approach to assess whether coffee increases cancer risk is a very effective approach and we used it to show that ultimately risk levels do not change when drinking coffee. The combination of coffee and cancer seems to be rubbish.
The researchers confirmed that there is no link between coffee intake and increased cancer risk. This is because coffee contains potentially cancerous biochemical compounds, but also anti-oxidants that can prevent cancer. We concluded that regardless of the specific compounds it contains, there is essentially no bond.
A second research confirmed that excessive consumption of coffee can increase heart risks. Data from the study conducted found that drinking six or more coffee every day can increase the risk of heart disease by up to 22%. If consumed in large quantities, caffeine can cause hypertension and consequently other more serious heart diseases. Almost all the studies that analyzed the relationship between coffee consumption and cancer risk, without distinguishing the site of the tumor, found an absence of risk. Overall cancer mortality is also no different between coffee drinkers and non-coffee drinkers.
Coffee is not Carcinogenic but has other issues
Why would coffee be at risk of cancer? The logic behind this judge’s decision is that during roasting at high temperatures a substance called acrylamide is produced, which is part of the list of those considered carcinogenic.
Coffee is not carcinogenic, while drinks that are too hot can become so if consumed frequently. This is what emerged from a recent evaluation by IARC, the International Agency for Research on Cancer of the World Health Organization, whose job is to examine the scientific literature to classify substances according to the risk class for our health. But there is a but. Coffee – continues the IARC – can still be considered carcinogenic as a hot drink; therefore not because of its components such as caffeine, but because of the high temperature at which it is often consumed. According to experts, there are sufficient elements to hypothesize – this is not the last word on the subject – that consuming too hot drinks (above 65° C) very frequently and for a long period is a risk factor for cancer.
