Cancer is a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body. Not all tumors are cancerous.
Conferring to a new research, people living in big cities have a much higher risk of developing lung cancer compared to those who live in small villages or high in the mountains.Apart from genetics, smoking, smog or working conditions (for ex. a mine), one of the main reasons why people in some areas are more vulnerable to developing lung cancer is actually the air they breathe.
IT’S FINALLY DISCOVERED WHAT CAUSES LUNG CANCER! YOU WON’T BELIEVE IT WHEN YOU READ WHAT THIS IS ABOUT!
It appears that it makes a big difference which altitude above the sea level you are living at. For one thing, the air in the lowlands is thicker, meaning that it is richer in oxygen, and it’s the oxygen that poses a danger to the human body.
Oxygen is actually a very abnormal element. Our body is using it to turn the food into energy. Nevertheless, oxidation is a metabolic process throughout which a lot of free radicals, that are very carcinogenic, are released.
These extremely reactive atoms can harshly affect our organism, even damage our DNA and throw-out the time, alter our cells, and that is the beginning of cancer. Since lungs are breathing organs, they are the affected first by oxidation, thus most vulnerable to developing cancer.
Though, if you want to decree the risk of lung cancer, try with moving to higher altitudes. The best place to move are the mountains since the air is thinner and your lungs will work differently and they will spread more.
According to one American study, lung cancer risk decreases manifold every 1,000 meters of altitude above the sea level.
