Scientists do not get tired of repeating: cancer is rapidly becoming younger, and if two decades ago, the risk of developing oncology was mentioned when a person crossed the mark of 45+, then today it is recommended to start screening for the main markers from 25. The other day the anti-cancer society inpublished the results of a study of oncological diagnoses of people aged 25 to 84 years. These data were collected for 20 years. It turned out that among men and women between the ages of 25 and 49, the incidence of several types of cancer sharply increased. In the first place are diseases that are associated with obesity (not so long ago, scientists found a link between overweight and oncology), – writes Health.
In the millenial generation, colorectal cancer (intestinal cancer), endometrial cancer affecting the uterus are common; oncology of the kidneys, gallbladder, pancreas, and myeloma (plasma cell cancer). The latter disease was previously manifested in patients aged 60 – 70 years. Most likely, he was "younger" because of the excessive popularity of fast food, sedentary lifestyle, and constant stress.
Also, in the Millennials, two more types of non-obese cancers were identified – leukemia and gastrointestinal tract cancer. Scientists believe this is directly related to the fact that the number of autoimmune diseases is increasing. The reason for their development is the predominance of antibiotics and preservatives in food, and in fast food, soyouth – carcinogens. In addition, the water we consume and the air we breathe are getting worse.
What to do? The recipe is as always one: to lead a healthy lifestyle, choosing the right, balanced diet. In addition, scientists add that the "philosophy of success" in which the current generation lives, causes them to ignore the rest. The current 25-35-year-olds do not get enough sleep and deny themselves leave for some more important things. And without "recharging" the body wears out faster.
