Cancer – the most dreaded disease can now be prevented and treated in transhumanistic ways

Cancer – the most dreaded disease can now be prevented and treated in transhumanistic ways

Sometimes, when loved persons die, we tend to accuse that doctors didn’t know to diagnose them correctly saying they died because of cancer. But are those accusations true or cancer is for real the most dreaded disease today? It looks like millions of people die annually because of this horrible disease so that cancer is a leading cause of worldwide mortality. Statistics from World Health Organization show that in 2004 about 7.4 million people died of cancer, representing 13% of the deaths, as follows: 1.3 million lung cancer, 800000 of stomach cancer, 640000 colon cancer. In 2007, according to a report from the American Cancer Society, this value increased to about 7.6 million deaths of various cancers. It is estimated that in 2030 11.5 million people will die of cancer.
But will we let this happen or will we start to do something to prevent and cure the cancer? Now, there are some researches telling us that cancer can be prevented or even cured no matter stage. But let’s get a look on what cancer is so we can understand it better.
What is cancer?
Cancer is a class of diseases characterized by uncontrolled division of cells in the body, invasion of their surrounding tissues and spreading to other parts of the body via lymph and blood (which is called metastasis). Uncontrolled increase in the number of cancer cells lead to a malignant tumor. But if that’s the malignant tumor, what is benign tumos? A benign tumor is the tumor that lacks the malignant properties of cancer: uncontrolled growth, invasion of adjacent tissues and metastasize. Benign tumors are generally not dangerous to health. An example of a benign tumor is the uterine fibroids.
