Everyone, especially those who work in the manufacture of building very afraid of this disease. It is a rare disease that can take the lives of sufferers with lightning speed. Very terrible!
Mesothelioma is the cancer of the mesothelium, which is a membrane lining of simple squamous epithelium cells. Mesothelioma usually affects the lining covering the lungs and surrounding thoracic cavity and the peritoneum.
Research continues to be done to save the lives of cancer patients with mesothelioma, other than that the researchers are also struggling to find ways to prevent the onset of this disease.
Researchers recently have proposed a new way to detect this cancer. News like this is really a great relief. Scientists may have found a key molecule that can help doctors detect mesothelioma cancer in asbestos-exposed people before it advances into later stages.
Like lung cancer, mesothelioma is most often caught only after the cancer has progressed too far for surgical correction – which is why it's often a terminal disease. But now scientists have found a promising method that can help detect mesothelioma before it gets out of hand – the key is in the High-Mobility Group Box 1 (HMGB1) protein.
HMGB1 is a protein secreted by both normal and cancerous mesothelium cells. But cancerous cells also secrete an acetylated isoform of the HMGB1 protein. Researchers hope that they can detect mesothelioma earlier by screening asbestos-exposed people for the acetylated version of the protein – since only cancerous cells make them and they would alert doctors of the developing mesothelioma.
one mesothelioma patient surviving the longest in remission, Paul Kraus, found this new research could potentially save thousands of lives. Mr. Kraus was first diagnosed when the cancer has reached an advanced stage and doctors are only guaranteed him a few months will die. These conditions are not much different from other mesothelioma patients, were detected only after being at an advanced stage. But now, Mr. Kraus is alive and well - two decades after his diagnosis!
Mr. Kraus also said that early detection is not the only secret to beating cancer. There are some natural remedies to combat this disease:
1. Limit your sugar.
According to the Osher Center of Integrative Medicine, eating sugar can promote cancer growth and spread. Although the available evidence, researchers can not make any definitive conclusions. But if you are diagnosed with cancer, it can only help if you eat less simple sugars and more complex sugars (such as quinoa and red potatoes).
2. Limiting carbohydrate and sugar intake
It can keep you healthy and boost the immune system, because too much sugar has been found to lower your immunity. Your immune system does not fight the cancer cells, thus weakening with high-sugar diet can only help cancer cells grow with less resistance.
Exercise has also been found to boost your immunity. The researchers also found that exercise helps lower the symptoms of cancer and boost the quality of life in cancer patients. Exercise has also been found to improve your level of NK cells to kill cancer.
Researchers think that regular exercise training NK cell levels you for always increasing and higher in the activities, which helps to fight cancer cells you.
If you have been exposed to asbestos, ask your doctor to test you for HMGB1 acetate to see if you start to develop mesothelioma. If you've been diagnosed with cancer, it is important to exercise daily and limit your sugar intake to keep your immune system sharply.
